White Fire

“Perhaps she didn’t know that Holmes was a fictional detective, we only deal in non-fiction here. . . . . But there was a copy in there of Doyle’s diary–just a photocopy, unfortunately–and it made entertaining reading for an old man stuck in a thankless job in a dusty archive.”

Dust jacket blurb:

Special Agent Pendergast arrives at an exclusive Colorado ski resort to rescue his protégée Corrie Swanson, from serious trouble with the law. His sudden appearance coincides with the first attack of a murderous arsonist who–with brutal precision–begins burning down multimillion-dollar mansions with the families locked inside. . . . .

Drawn deeper into the investigation, Pendergast uncovers a mysterious connection between the dead miners and a fabled, long-lost Sherlock Holmes story–one that might just offer the key to the modern day killings as well.
