However, this time it is an evolving serial killer anomaly that relentlessly searches for, hunts down, and ingeniously traps his victims before unleashing his fiery rage.

While following the clues of the relentless firebomber, Stone grabs the attention of a government anti-terrorist organization called GATE that oversees all law enforcement cases across the U.S., which now focuses their sights on her proven abilities. They have very specific plans for her, whether she likes it or not. Everything teeters on the edge of reality, as Stone must battle for her life between a hired assassin and an arson serial killer. Lines are drawn on both sides of the law. Friendships and lovers are tested.

Dead Burn by Jennifer Chase is at least the fourth Emily Stone thriller skillfully woven by the author. In this episode Emily is trying to figure out a serial killer arsonist, whose method of trapping his victims in some situation from which they cannot escape before burning them to death seems to be evolving with each new murder. The victims in this case are a rapist who was released due to lack of evidence, his cheesy defense attorney who has built his reputation getting similar cases dismissed, the judge who let the rapist go along with his only daughter and her husband, the private investigator who helped produce the lack of evidence , the Assistant District Attorney, and the Jury Foreman. The intensely personal and painful ordeals Emily goes through to finally stop the killer are more than sufficient to make you and Emily wonder why she continues in this line of work. Dead Burn is a gut-wrenching, nerve-wracking thriller that will keep you glued to the edge of your seat from start to finish. Multiple sub-plots threaten Emily s life from directions she doesn t even suspect until after she has managed to elude them. If you like thrillers, get this book, a bottle of antacid tablets, and clear your calendar for a few days so you won t be interrupted. Advise your family that you are not to be disturbed, under penalty of your wrath if they do disturb you. Then prepare yourself for an emotional roller coaster that will challenge your stamina. This is a story you will not soon forget. --Reviewed by Lee Ashford for Readers' Favorite
Dead Burn , a new novel by Jennifer Chase, is one of those very special books that not long after starting to read it, you very quickly realise that you have found an amazingly well developed and written story that quickly reels you in right from the very start. I really enjoyed reading this book. Jennifer Chase s use of a very clear and descriptive writing style allows a reader to cognitively experience the emotions and events that take place within and between the different characters in this particular gripping and absorbing story. The psychological and behavioural profiles used by the author for each of the individual characters found within this book are very real and you can see that the author s professional background clearly stands out in relation to this particular aspect in the very strong story line. In trying to provide some descriptors as to what Dead Burn is all about and without actually providing any spoilers for this book, I would briefly say that Dead Burn is a fictional story about crime, forensic profiling and the tracking and the catching of some quite disturbed criminals. This book contains adventure, thrills and spills, quite a few haunting moments with also a bit of romance thrown into the mix as well! I would highly recommend Dead Burn by Jennifer Chase as a very good and addictive forensic crime read. This book is currently only available in Kindle e-book format from Amazon, but I can see this book eventually becoming a print book best seller and possibly even being produced as a film. It is that good! Also, it is currently very reasonably priced! This is the very first book that I have read that has been written by the author Jennifer Chase. I am now looking forward hopefully, to reading further new books in this particular series by Jennifer! --Reviewed by The Secret Writer
