Once more, she teams up with Irvine police detective Jim McGregor, but as they methodically hunt down one serial killer, Southern California’s beautiful neighborhoods begin to burn. As powerful Santa Ana winds whip the flames, Cat knows she must catch another killer–a serial arsonist who is happy watch as his fires consumes buildings and people’s lives. With the intensity and ferocity of the fires increasing, Cat knows time is running out. Will she pay the ultimate price? Or will she bring these killers to justice? This novel is available on Amazon.
Firestorm is most impressive. The characters were well thought out and the writing sharp and quick. Ritchie knows how to rock an autopsy scene!
This fast-paced thriller will get hold of you from the first page and never let go. Filled with details only Orange County locals would know, Firestorm realistically places the reader in the very heart of a firestorm.
Firestorm keeps the pace fast and compelling. Ritchie keeps the reader fully invested in each step of the protagonist’s struggle to stop the murderous rampage of a pair of sadistic and vengeful opponents.
A thrilling page-turner that I found hard to put down. The forensics and fire scenes were so realistic that I could almost feel the heat and the conflagration and smell the smoke and ash. Ritchie has a real winner with Firestorm.
In Firestorm, a serial arsonist creates an inferno of revenge fueled by hate aimed at Dr. Catherine Powers and her son, Joey. Firestorm is a gripping drama with characters you will pine to know more about long after you read the last chapter.
Firestorm is an intense battle between Cat Powers, a hard charging forensic pathologist/agent with the FBI and a psychopathic murder who would make Hannibal Lecter cringe. Both are brilliant and determined to win at any cost.
