Publisher's Summary

Pastor and fireman Nick Foster found the body in the inferno engulfing his church. From the bullet wound in the head, it's clear this is no ordinary fire victim. The quiet community of Newpointe, reeling from the shock of the dead man's identity, struggles with the agonizing question: who did it - and why?

Paramedic Issie Mattreaux is no icon of virtue, but she cares enough about her teenage nephew, Jake, to track him down when he turns up missing. Only, what she finds is far more than a harmless bonfire on the outskirts of town.

After a chilling attempt on Issie's life, Nick takes on the role of protector even as he struggles with the tragedy that has struck his church. Whoever is behind the fire is far from finished. Unknown to Nick, that person's twisted agenda now threatens to consume everything he loves most.

Trial by Fire is book four in the Newpointe 911 series, which offers taut, superbly crafted novels of faith, fear, and close-knit small-town relationships, seasoned with romance and tempered by insights into the nature of relationships, redemption, and the human heart.

Dial up more suspense from the Newpointe 911 series.

Strongly Christian

What did you love best about Trial by Fire?

If you don't like Christian based books, don't read this because there is a lot of emphasis on turning to Christ in the characters. The story is exciting and gets very intense at the end.

Have you listened to any of J. C. Howe’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

a great job on change of voice between characters.
