About this title

Synopsis:

In his fifth appearance, Fire Chief Mac Fontana looks for the smoking gun behind a devastating conflagration at a paint factory that took the lives of nine firefighters and continues to plague Seattle firefighters. Tour."

Review:

Nine people died in the fire that destroyed the Dead Horse Paint Company--a massive warehouse with a stuffed horse as its mascot. Now, several years later, people are still dying because of it. As in all the rest of Earl Emerson's superior, scrupulously crafted books about firefighter Mac Fontana, fire itself is one of the main characters: the way it ebbs and roars, the way it fools people into thinking they've beaten it. Fontana, now the fire chief in the small Washington state town of Staircase, was one of the survivors of Dead Horse. When an old boss (and enemy) is found burned to death in the trunk of his car in Mac's vicinity, all the fear and anger surrounding the killer blaze implodes out of the past. Other Fontana fire-eaters available in paperback are Going Crazy in Public and Morons and Madmen.
