Move over Nero and Mrs. O'Leary's cow, the world now has an even worse arsonist to deal with, Roberto Chavera. Willing to burn down the whole city of Los Angeles in order to free his brother, he is opposed by the one man who can stop him, Ethan Bainbridge, an LA cop out for revenge.

Gut wrenching terror and hilarious cop humor await you within Firestorms' pages. This exciting novel also contains scenes that could be right from today's newspapers as high rises burn and Special Forces extraction teams "go in country" to hunt terrorists. Firestorms is a good read.
