Book Review: Fire Sign by M.A. Petterson

A beautiful forensic engineer hiding a tragic past reluctantly teams up with a troubled cop to stop a serial arsonist targeting churches.

Dr. Anja Toussaint believes that her own dreadful youth foretells who the arsonist is and the shocking motive behind the fires. But Detective Gil Dolan stubbornly sets his sights on a white supremacist previously convicted of arson and just released from prison.

Unfortunately, when Anja blocks his efforts the arrogant cop sets his own plan into motion that leads them both into a fiery trap.

* Please note: Fire Sign is a novella and about one quarter the length of regular novel.

My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free e-copy from the author. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

Dr. Anja Toussaint is a forensic engineer who, along with Detective Gil Dolan, is investigating fires that are being set in churches. She’s convinced she knows why they’re being set and is determined to find the arsonist.

Fire Sign is a good story with an exciting ending. I like the two main characters even though they rub each other the wrong way. The only thing that disappointed me was that it could have been longer; the case was solved super fast.
