No one in 1840s New York likes fires, but Copper Star Timothy Wilde least of all. So when an arsonist with an agenda begins threatening Alderman Robert Symmes, a corrupt and powerful leader high in the Tammany Hall ranks, Wilde isn't thrilled to be involved. His reservations escalate further when his brother, Valentine, announces that he'll be running against Symmes in the upcoming election, making both himself and Timothy a host of powerful enemies.

I read the two previous books in this series and thoroughly enjoyed them, before my audible subscription. I was excited when I saw this book listed and was looking forward to the continued saga. What a complete and utter disappointment. The narrator sounded as if he was reading words as opposed to reading a story. I found it near impossible to follow the story and would constantly have to rewind to figure out what I was listening to as my mind tended to wander due to the dull presentation. Thank goodness for refunds. I’ll take this book out of the library instead.
