Only The Brave

imagesIf you see this movie you’ll never think of wildfires in the same way again. Ever. We hear about these disasters all the time, but I’m sure most of us have no idea what the firefighters or hotshots who deal with these raging infernos do for a living.

Edmond Gagnon‘s review

Jan 07, 2017  · 

This is the first Nora Roberts novel I’v read. I chose it for comparison purposes, having written a book with a similar story about a serial arsonist, called Torch.
I had a difficult time keeping track of the characters at first, wondering why a couple in particular, were included in the story. My answer came about half way through the book, where everything came together.
For me, the plot was too predictable, yet the protagonist doesn’t catch on until near the end. I ave to think every reader came to the same conclusion.
Regardless, Blue Smoke is a well written, great story. Having been an arson investigator, I found the story accurate and compelling.
A very good read!
