About this title

Synopsis:

Wales is supposed to be a rest cure, a chance to exorcise the demons of injury, guilt and betrayal. But before Steve Jay has even reached the remote clinic, he has had to deal with a house fire and a clear case of murder. Then he is caught in a forest fire, an elemental force; awesome, destructive, deadly. Steve Jay, seeking rest and isolation, has landed on an anthill, a vicious eco-war between the Welsh and a multi-national mining conglomerate. By degrees he is drawn into the battle, lured by a beautiful woman with a past: a past that will engulf him. He returns to London not whole, but functional; not healed, but rested, with breath enough to try to regain his position and self-respect. But he has scarcely time to settle in when a huge explosion rips the heart from a building and presents him and his crew with the most dangerous incident they have ever faced - the eco-war has followed him to London. Jay is forced to go back to Wales and discover the truth, but not before a woman he thought he'd never see again returns with trouble on her mind and Jay in her heart.

From the Publisher:

Wales is supposed to be a rest cure, a chance to exorcise the demons of injury, guilt, and betrayal. But before Steve Jay has even reached the remote clinic, he’s had to deal with a house fire and a clear case of murder. And then he finds himself caught in a deadly forest fire. Seeking rest and isolation, Jay has instead landed in the midst of a vicious eco–war between the Welsh and a multi–national mining conglomerate. By degrees, he’s drawn into the battle, lured by a woman with a past—a past that will engulf him. He returns home, not healed but resolved to regain his position and self–respect. But he scarcely has time to settle in when a building explosion presents him and his crew with more danger than they’ve ever faced—the eco–war has followed him to London. Jay is forced back to Wales to discover the truth, but not before a woman he thought he’d never see again returns with trouble on her mind and Jay in her heart. Pat O’Keeffe, a London fire fighter, is the author of Thermal Image.
