|"Kinsey Millhone has another puzzle to solve here in this mystery. The question is, did someone set the fire to the Wood/Warren business deliberately, or was it accidental? Kinsey has to find the evidence of what really happened here, as there is also a killer in the background who keeps himself well hidden. This same person wants to see the business finished forever and gain revenge on the family who started it.
Kinsey is working hard to solve this case and put the puzzle together before she gets hurt and the killer comes looking for her.
