Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for The Fire Killer by Ross Greenwood. Thank you to Rachel’s Random Resources for the tour invite. Read on for more info and my review.
When DI Barton is asked to investigate a seemingly innocuous fire that kills, he believes it’s either children fooling around or a worrying racially motivated crime.
As he delves deeper into the case, he soon realises that there is a history of similar blazes spread out over many years, all within a close area. And after an idea is suggested by pathologist Mortis, Barton suspects he has the arsonist’s motives wrong.
When a night worker comes forward with a tip, Barton narrows down the suspects. Yet all of them act suspiciously and he knows for sure that one or more of them are lying. And when a huge house blaze shocks everyone, Barton fears the killer has lost all control.
Who is The Fire Killer? What will be next to burn?
I have really enjoyed previous Ross Greenwood novels so I was exited to pick up The Fire Killer! I’m happy to report, I wasn’t disappointed. This is the 5th book in this series, and while it can be read as a standalone, this author is great, so why not add them all to your TBR!
I think one of my favorite aspects of this novel is how human the characters are. They are detectives, and as someone who doesn’t work in the criminal investigation field, it was really nice to see these detectives as humans, with humor and families just like everyone else.
There are quite a few twists and turns, and Ross Greenwood doesn’t make guessing who the killer is easy! I really enjoyed this one and would recommend giving it a read! Looking forward to more from this author.
Thank you to Rachel’s Random Resources, Boldwood Books, Netgalley, and the author for the free review copy. All opinions are my own and unbiased.
