"Heaven's Fire" may be what Pasquale Firenze, patriarch of the family-owned Firenze Fireworks, calls his painting of the night sky with light, color and sound, but television producer Wendy "Jake" Jacobus has more practical considerations than her featured showman's artistry. Or so she believes, until Pasquale is killed—live on-camera—by an explosion, and Jake is hurled into a tangled web triggered by her job, her legacy as a cancer survivor, and her growing attraction to Simon Aamot, the federal agent assigned to the investigation.

Aamot has problems as well, but when the two are forced together by the tragedy, the man unable to let go of his past and the woman afraid to trust her future must race to prevent another catastrophic explosion--this one at the county's Fourth of July celebration.

“Equal parts thriller, romance and family saga . . . a compelling and deeply human read.”
--Joan Johnston, New York Times bestselling author of Texas Bride

“Rooted in the dangerously exotic world of a multi-generational fireworks company . . . spell-binding.”
--Jeremiah Healy, award-winning author of The Only Good Lawyer and Spiral

“A fast-paced mystery that explodes off the page.”
--Ali Brandon, national bestselling author of Double Booked for Death

"What moves Balzo high above other writers who try to cover the same territory is a sharp and often amusing skill that convinces us that this is real life, and that it matters.”
--Chicago Tribune
