From the Back Cover:

"Fire-Tongue," he said. "Nicol Brinn." These are the last words of Sir Charles Abingdon, who was convinced he was being followed through the streets of London. Fortunately, the man who heard this his cryptic message was Paul Harley, an investigator Sir Charles hired to discover who was stalking him, who stole a manuscript from his study, and who called him away from his home on the night of his death. Paul Harley is no ordinary investigator. He'd done highly confidential work in the Near East and was "an unofficial field marshal of the forces arrayed against evildoers."

But that's not the only characteristic that sets Harley apart -- he's guided by his sixth sense. "It was an evasive, fickle thing, but was nevertheless the attribute which had made him an investigator of genius." Harley will need all of his talents -- and his extra-sensory perception -- to solve the riddle of the Fire-Tongue.
