Lisa Jackson revives two characters from her popular novel Deep Freeze in this sequel. Her heart-pounding crime novels are famous for their thrilling romances, and Fatal Burn turns up the heat.

"A tight, twisty plot catapulting toward a fiery conclusion will please fans and should earn Jackson new ones." (Publishers Weekly)
Say something about yourself!
I enjoyed listening to this book. George Guidall is one of my favorite readers, so that was part of it. The story is good, though. Lots of twists, interesting characters. I particularly liked the young girl, Dani - feisty, brave and smart. By the end, I had figured out the mystery, but I didn't right away. It was a good listen.
I call this type of writing "repeat and remind" - The author repeats the feelings that the characters have over and over until the reader is supposedly lulled into believing that the character actually feels that way - Unfortunately for the author, actions speak louder than words and there is NO WAY a father supposedly so over wraught with distress over his kidnapped daughter would take precious time out to buy steaks and champagne to romance a woman he has just met - this is just one example of the sillyness that takes place in this novel - confusing what might have been an interesting plot line.
I implore you to listen to the other reviewers who tell of repetition. DON'T WASTE YOUR PRECIOUS TIME with this overly drawn out, painfully repetitious, rambling tale. It is a good story (that was what made me give it a chance) but it wasn't worth it. Too bad JoAnn Ross or another skilled author didn't write this plot or perhaps an editor could have done his/her job and cut it down to an appropriate 7 hours!!
