Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Earl Emerson, bestselling author of Vertical Burn, turns up the heat with this dynamic, fact-based depiction of the world of firefighting. In a frantic race against time, one man must unlock the secret to his own potential demise and that of his entire department?as they venture...

Into the Inferno

In the freezing heart of the Pacific Northwest winter, a group of firefighters from North Bend Fire and Rescue responds to a freeway accident. Two trucks have collided on the icy pavement. One of the trucks was transporting livestock; the other carried within its cargo an unmarked, innocuous-looking container. Now the highway is chaos with irate drivers, volunteer fire crews, and hundreds of escaped chickens.

The trucks are cleared, the highway reopens, and another day ends. But the repercussions of the crash are enormous. For six months later, the firefighters who were at the scene begin to mysteriously succumb to unexplained accidents and ailments. Jim Swope wakes up with the first, strange symptom — a symptom of an unknown disease that renders its victims brain-dead within a week. Now he has only seven days to determine how he and his fellow firefighters have been poisoned — and to discover an antidote...if one exists. If he doesn?t, these will be the last seven days of his life.

In a red-hot pursuit to the end, Earl Emerson puts real-life heroes up against seemingly insurmountable odds. Intense in the third degree, Into the Inferno is a brilliant melding of fact and thriller. Prepare yourself for the sweltering heat of wickedly good suspense.

Review:

"Sluggish and gloomy. Reliable, who?s fought his share of real-life fires, uncharacteristically fails to light one here." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"With 12 books and two decades as a Seattle firefighter under his belt, Emerson has the knowledge and confidence to experiment. Here, he lessens the emphasis on firefighting lore in favor of character development and suspense in a cinematic tour de force that finishes with a jolting twist." Library Journal
