I was browsing in our public library's new books section and came across a book by an author I hadn't heard of yet - Shawn Grady. As I perused his book, I saw favorable comments from two authors I appreciate - James Scott Bell and Kathryn Cushman, so I decided to give this new author a chance. I'm so glad I did. Through The Fire gives an insider's view of fire fighting in addition to giving the reader an excellent story with well-developed and interesting characters.
Back of the Book says:
Even Smoke Runs From the Fire.
Firefighting burns in Aidan O’Neill’s blood, but his innate gift for reading flames has made him overconfident and sometimes puts lives in danger. When one call goes horribly wrong and a rookie is hurt, Aidan ends up suspended and finds himself questioning everything.
It couldn’t have happened at a worse time.
An arsonist is targeting Reno, leaving a scorched path of destruction. The department calls Aidan back, but his return is troubled. The gift he relied on for so long has gone silent and it’s as though the fires are coming for him, hunting him down. Teaming with a beguiling fire investigator who may know more than she’s saying, Aidan must discover where his trust rests as the flames burn ever closer.
