CFBI agent Jasmine McLellan is assigned a hot case—one that requires the psychic abilities of the PSI Division, a secret government agency located in the secluded town of Divine, BC.
Jasi leads a psychically gifted team in the hunt for a serial arsonist—a murderer who has already taken the lives of three innocent people. Unleashing her gift as a Pyro-Psychic, Jasi is compelled toward smoldering ashes and enters the killer’s mind. A mind bent on destruction and revenge.
Jasi’s team, consisting of Psychometric Empath and profiler, Ben Roberts, and Victim Empath, Natassia Prushenko, is led down a twisting path of dark, painful secrets. Brandon Walsh, the handsome, smooth-talking Chief of Arson Investigations joins them in a manhunt that takes them across British Columbia—from Vancouver to Kelowna, Penticton and Victoria.
While impatiently sifting through the clues that were left behind, Jasi and her team realize that there is more to the third victim than meets the eye. Perhaps not all of the victims were that innocent. The hunt intensifies when they learn that someone they know is next on the arsonist’s list.
The case heats to the boiling point as Jasi steps out of the flames…and into the fire. And in the heat of early summer, Agent Jasi McLellan discovers that a murderer lies in wait…much closer than she imagined.
This book is about Jasi who is a leading and gifted Pyro-Psychic. She leads a team of different psychics who deal with unexplained and unsolved murders. Jasi takes charge of an investigation that involves prominent members of the state. On doing this though she is forced to face painful secrets from her past, as well as meeting Brandon Walsh who causes her a whole lot of problems both in her personal life and in her professional life. Jasi has to search through fire remnants to find out and stop who ever is causing these fires and murdering people. Everything seems to point to a certain suspect, but is there someone else out there that is not all they seem to be and how close to Jasi they are.
I loved this book from the very first chapter, it grabbed me and dragged me into the story line. Jasi as a character is amazing, and her story, background and inherent problems that she carries around with her are captivating and intriguing, making you want everything to turn out for her and nothing bad to happen. Although I do love all the characters in this book the way that they manage to interact with one another is well written and mesmerizing.
At times this book is funny, emotional, heartfelt, and educational. The author has done a fantastic job of building a world in which the reader can lose themselves, believing that the characters are real and wanting the best outcomes.
Overall I would give this book a 5/5 as I really do believe that the author has done an amazing job at writing this story line, making everything valid and realistic. The characters are amazing and the whole book reads really well. I know I certainly want to go back for more and read the next book in the series, and I’m sure that other readers out there will also feel the same.
