ON THE LINE
For Hidden Cove fire chief Noah Callahan, the past year has been pure hell. A string of accidents and mishaps has been dogging the department, the most horrific of which was a devastating fire that cost the lives of 10 firefighters.
Special investigator Eve Woodward has been sent to Hidden Cove to discover the truth about the problems in the fire department. At first glance, all evidence points to Noah being responsible, but as Eve works with him she can't reconcile the idea of him being corrupt. But something is going on, and it will be up to Eve to discover the truth.
The lives of firefighters Zack Malvaso and Casey Brennan have been nearly destroyed by bad emotional decisions. Can these two walking wounded find a way to heal each other? Picturesque Hidden Cove is suddenly the hotbed of passion, danger, corruption and arson.
Powerhouse author Shay follows up last year's After the Fire with another dramatic and dynamic thriller. Her complex and unforgettable characters breathe real life into this truly intense novel. (Jul., 400 pp., $6.99)
