This is a procedural fire fighter story with strong mystery/crime elements, yet little to no romance. It was a bit confusing trying to figure out all the fire fighter lingo and procedures at the same time as trying to understand the storyline. Once I got a handle on the fire fighting parts, the story took centre stage and became much easier to follow and enjoy.

Jason was a contradictory character. His actions when viewed from outside make him seemed like a jerk. He is a womanizer with no emotions. But once you see the story from his point of view, it becomes obvious that he’s just clueless. He doesn’t seem to understand what reactions his actions cause, and he doesn’t get women at all. He’s more deserving of sympathy than derision.

Overall, this story took a bit to get into, but it is enjoyable and entertaining. There is way more tragedy than expected, but it is all realistic, even if it is sad and heartbreaking.
