Firestorm (Anna Pigeon #4)

by Nevada Barr

As part of the army battling the Jackknife fire in northern California's Lassen Volcanic National Park, Anna, in her capacity as spike camp medic and security officer, tends the injuries and the frayed nerves of the firefighters. When the National Weather Service predicts a cold front followed by snow, promising to all but extinguish the fire, the camp is demobilized, but a last-minute rescue of a firefighter with a broken leg detains Anna and the San Juan crew. Driven on by the erratic thunderstorm of the front, wind shears in the steep canyon, creating the deadly weather conditions for a firestorm. As the ravine explodes in flames propelled by racing winds, the crew tries desperately to outrun the blaze, ultimately seeking refuge in their individual silver fire shelters wryly referred to as shake 'n' bakes. When the fire finally passes, Anna emerges from her shelter to check on the fate of her companions. The sound of each exhausted voice, the sight of each bruised and blackened figure, is cause for celebration-until one member of the crew is found inside his shelter with a knife in his back. With darkness comes the snow, making immediate rescue impossible, and Anna must tend to the physical and emotional wounds of the crew while seeking the identity of the murderer in their midst.

Firethorn (Firethorn Trilogy, Book 1)

by Sarah Micklem

"Firethorn flees a life of drudgery to live alone in the forest, relying on her knowledge of herb lore to survive. She returns transformed, indebted to the god who saved her life, and blessed - or cursed - with uncanny abilities and a nagging sense of destiny. After a few nights of dalliance with Sire Galan, a high-caste warrior on his way to join the king's army, Firethorn seizes the chance to go with him, only to find she has exchanged one form of servitude for another." "The army readies for war in the vast encampment of the Marchfield, where men prey on each other and women dare go nowhere alone. Among the lowborn harlots and the highborn dames of the camp, Firethorn learns to use her gifts as a healer, venturing into realms of dream and shadow." "Desire drew Firethorn and Sire Galan together, but love binds them - a love that has no place in the arrangement between a warrior and his sheath. When Galan makes a wager with disastrous consequences, Firethorn uses her gifts to intervene in his fate and learns just how hard it can be to tell honor from dishonor, justice from vengeance."--BOOK JACKET.

Fireworks Tonight!

by Martha Brenner

From the Book Jacket: Streams of sparks and sprays of colored stars light up the dark sky, thundering blasts echo all around ... FIREWORKS TONIGHT! For centuries man has been playing with fire with dazzling, sometimes dire, results-and few things have as much power to astound and intrigue us. Martha Brenner's research has turned up a wealth of fascinating information on the world of pyrotechnics. She covers the history of fireworks from the primitive firecrackers developed some 2000 years ago in China to the breathtaking special effects of today, the tragic accidents that have led to current laws regulating their use, the intriguing step-by-step development of a modern fireworks show from the drawing board to the actual shooting. How are fireworks made? Very carefully! And almost entirely by hand, because metal machinery produces heat and static electricity that could easily ignite an entire building full of explosives. Who makes fireworks? Most are manufactured by a handful of dynamic, devoted families that have passed on their tricks and trademarks for generations. Fireworks Tonight! gives us profiles of them and their particular pyrotechnical styles. How do fireworks work? Martha Brenner explains that, too-in clear, scientific detail. And there's more. Fireworks Tonight! includes a trip behind the scenes at a fireworks show, a visit to a manufacturing plant, a section on safety, a list of the 50 states' current laws on their sale and use, an illustrated spectators' guide-to help fire works fans tell a roman candle from a rocket and a list of notable fireworks facts: the biggest display in history, the loudest, the longest .. . Generously illustrated with over 60 photo graphs and prints, Fireworks Tonight! is a lively, accurate, and comprehensive introduction to a subject of universal appeal.

A Firing Offense

by David Ignatius

This book, written by a respected journalist, is as fresh as tomorrow's headlines and as relevant as today's news. Eric Truell is a rising star young reporter for the new York Mirror. Yet, despite the fact that it is "a firing offense", he becomes increasingly entangled with the CIA and International espionage and corruption. Where is the line between "journalistic sources" and "intelligence gathering"? Where is the line between patriotism and professional journalistic ethics? If you read this book, you may not find the answers to these questions, but you will have read a fine, exciting book.

When one of the stockboys disappears, it's not news: just another metalhead who went off chasing some dream of big money and easy living. But the kid reminded Nick of himself twelve years ago: an angry punk hooked on speed metal and the fast life. So when the boy's grandfather begs Nick to find the kid, Nick says he'll try. A Firing Offense, Nick Stefanos' debut, shows why, as Barry Gifford puts it, "To miss out on Pelecanos would be criminal."
