Publisher's Summary

In the exclusive, gated enclave of Olympia Forest Estates, death investigator Angela Richman watches a mansion go up in a fiery blaze. With it, seventy-year-old financier Luther Delor, a drunken, bed-hopping rhinestone cowboy. Embroiled in a bitter divorce, Delor may have scandalized Chouteau Forest, but his murder has united it against the accused: Delor's twenty-year-old girlfriend, Kendra Salvato, an "outsider." With an engagement ring bigger than Chouteau County, she's being railroaded straight to death row as a gold-digging killer.

All there is against Kendra is vicious gossip and anti-Mexican rage, and both are spreading like wildfire. Meanwhile, Angela is trying to douse the flames with forensic work that's putting the Forest on edge. After all, facts could implicate one of their own. Now, sifting through the ashes of a vicious crime - and the guilty secrets of the privileged - only Angela can get to the truth, and prevent an innocent woman from getting burned.

    Story
    "Good second book in series..."
    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    When a Mexican woman and later her father are arrested for murder and then arson I knew this was going to be a good book. Add to that Racial unrest and wealthy bad boys who "Would never do that!)! and you can kind of predict how this story is going to end up.


    What does Tanya Eby bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I always like listening to Tanya Eby. I think she did a great job narrating.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed this book. Elaine Viets wrote a book that contains issues relevant today with unrest between locals and the Mexican immigrants. It didn't matter to the locals if they were here legally, were citizens or even if they had businesses and family. These people would never be part of the community.
    When a wealthy local Caucasian man dies on a house fire, his younger Mexican fiancé is blamed by the good old boys in law enforcement and she is arrested.
    When Angela Richmon the death investigator looks at the actual facts, they don't add up but convincing the authorities will not be easy
    This is a good suspense and I HIGHLY RECOMMENDED it.
    If you have Kindle Unlimited the cost is a whole $1.99!!

    Story
    "Excellent police procedural; excellent narration!"

    Fire and Ashes is Book 2 in the Death Investigator Angela Richman series by Elaine Viets. I have not listened to Book 1. The brief publisher's summary provides a perfect setup to the novel, so I will not add to it. The suspense related to action is intense but not constant. The suspense related to the investigation is intense and constant. I enjoyed this novel. Tanya Eby narrates wonderfully as is usual for her.

    "Entertaining"

    This is a very entertaining book with engaging and realistic characters and plot. I like how the author gives a prologue at the end. I look forward to the next book.
