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 am sure I will listen to Fatal Burn again. It has such great twists and turns!
I am not sure there is any one book it can be compared to, at least not that I have read or listened to.
When Shannon forces her brothers to come clean about the truth of what they and their father had been doing.
No laughing or crying but it certainly had me feeling like I was on the edge of my seat. The suspense was great.
I like the twist that some of the characters who are normally good guys in books like these turned out to be shady. While this was sad for Shannon it was an unexpected change which was refreshing.
I'm a single mom and architect & to avoid boredom bought a fixer-upper so I LOVE Audible, it is the only way I get to enjoy a book anymore!!
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!!
I have never found a Jackson book that I haven't loved. This one is no exception.....the characters and plot is engaging from the get go. But that is only if you read the book, not listen. I forced myself to listen to the entire book but it was hard. That narrator is absolutely horrible at characters, especially women. I've no doubt he is amazing reading with male characters, although trying to do several different voices seem to be tough and they aren't consistent throughout the story here. Overall I love the book, but I think I'll stick to the hard copy from now on
I thoroughly enjoyed this story, however the recording had strange breaks and bad editing, making it choppy .
Mystery, who done it, medical, good YA, I'm in. light romance too. Bring on the gore but leave out the explicit love scenes please.
Sorry, no soilers
Yeah, just don't like him. Sorry
I just don't like this narrator no matter what book it is
I liked the dog best. The whole storyline and the obsession with fire.
Not Lisa Jackson
Don't have one.
No. These people live in the country, one is ex-military and nobody has a gun. People are dying all around. The villain just walks up and attacks. Where is this England? Get a gun and shoot the bastard. Please
I was going to build a fire in the fireplace tonight but I'm afraid it will remind me of the money I wasted on this book.
