Synopsis

"After you pick this book up, it won't put you down."—Kelly Braffet, author of Last Seen Leaving

Twenty years after pyromaniac Delphie kills a family, he is released from prison to his sister Andrea's care. Her efforts to keep him steady lead her off course into secret corners of New York, where danger is difficult to gauge and a spark, once ignited, is hard to extinguish.
