Publisher's Summary

White Fire: Booktrack Edition adds an immersive musical soundtrack to your audiobook listening experience!*

Booktrack editions are essentially a new genre of digital storytelling entertainment. Music and ambient audio are added to complement and enhance the audiobook experience. It is a synchronized movie-style soundtrack that complements the narration of existing audiobooks; the tempo and rhythm of the score harmonize with action, dialogue, and the characters' emotional arcs.

Past and present collide as Special Agent Pendergast uncovers mysterious connections between a string of 19th-century bear attacks in a Colorado mining town, a fabled, long-lost Sherlock Holmes story, and a deadly present-day arsonist.

In 1876, in a mining camp called Roaring Fork in the Colorado Rockies, 11 miners were killed by a rogue grizzly bear. Corrie Swanson has arranged to examine the miners' remains. When she makes a shocking discovery, town leaders try to stop her from exposing their community's dark and bloody past.

Just as Special Agent Pendergast of the FBI arrives to rescue his protege, the town comes under siege by a murderous arsonist who - with brutal precision - begins burning down multimillion-dollar mansions with the families locked inside. Drawn deeper into the investigation, Pendergast discovers a long-lost Sherlock Holmes story that may be the key to solving both the mystery of the long-dead miners and the modern-day killings as well.

Now, with the ski resort snowed in and under savage attack - and Corrie's life suddenly in grave danger - Pendergast must solve the enigma of the past before the town of the present goes up in flames.

*Booktrack is an immersive format that pairs traditional audiobook narration to complementary music. The tempo and rhythm of the score are in perfect harmony with the action and characters throughout the audiobook. Gently playing in the background, the music never overpowers or distracts from the narration, so listeners can enjoy every minute. When you purchase this Booktrack edition, you receive the exact narration as the traditional audiobook available, with the addition of music throughout.

Another winner

This is my first Audible book and it was fabulous. The story was typical Pendergast edge of the seat thriller. I finish the entire book in one day, I couldn’t put it down.

Amazing story, booktrack added a perfect addition!

I was already hooked on the Pendergast series, and now that I've discovered the "booktrack" option, I'm even more excited to start another. Please do more booktrack books soon!!

Perfect Escape with a Holmesian Twist

AXL Pendergrast is back with a new tale, this one set high in the Rockies, and in the past of Merry Old England with Arthur Conan Doyle and Oscar Wilde, with a newly found account of Sherlock and advice from Oscar:
"In Reading gaol by Reading town There is a pit of shame, And in it lies a wretched man Eaten by teeth of flame, In burning winding-sheet he lies, And his grave has got no name. And there, till Christ call forth the dead, In silence let him lie: No need to waste the foolish tear, Or heave the windy sigh: The man had killed the thing he loved, And so he had to die."

Incredible!!!

This series was my first book ever to listen to on Audible - the Cabinet of Curiosities. I have followed each book in the series, somehow I missed this one. It was a great story and I'm a huge Pendergast fan. I loved the Sherlock Holmes added storyline. You'll enjoy this book!

Enjoyed my sick day

I stumbled across this book, and decided it sounded interesting. It is the first one I have read in the series, so I’m out of order! I felt this book was well performed, that the mystery was interesting and kept me engaged. I wasn’t feeling well, and was happily able to lay around listening to this book for hours, enjoying myself even though I was physically not feeling well. I would recommend this book to those who enjoy reading mysteries. I have already downloaded the next book in the series.I would recommend against it, for individuals who are sensitive to violent or intense scenes.

I’d stopped reading this series, I think I’m back

I was hooked at Relic and devoured the series but, the 2-3 books preceding this one were, in my humble opinion, predictable, cliche and sometimes boring. I was kind of sad but I put the series down for awhile. I picked it back up at this one for some reason and I am glad. I loved this book! I enjoyed the writing, storytelling and performance. The characters were interesting. I like watching the characters evolve and grow. The plot was twisty and unique. Events were not so predictable and, even if they were, I still enjoyed watching it unravel.

incedental music detracts

extra noises don't add to story, I must have missed the notification that this was different.

Excellent

Being blind I really love Booktrack Editions. With headphones it’s especially great. (Listen to the sample. You will know if you like it or not in five minutes). White Fire is more of Corrie Swanson book (and that’s not a bad thing). Murder, arson, cannibalism, and a lost Sherlock Holmes story are just the start of this tale.
