Product Details


Firewatching is a UK cop novel with a pitch-perfect blend of the best of the old and the best of the new – all the traditional strengths and charms are here, with a fresh and relevant 21st-century edge. I loved it.”—Lee Child

“[An] excellent debut…This stunning police procedural marks Thomas as an author to watch.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“The richness of Tyler’s character and the vividness of his negotiation of his own sexuality and the casual bigotry in his community are effective. The subsidiary characters are lively and believable, the arsons are particularly well described…This is a rewarding entertainment. A good detective in an incendiary procedural.”—Kirkus Reviews

“[A] gritty first novel…Tyler and Rabbani make an intriguing team, and Thomas shows a flair for vivid imagery in this twisty, very dark procedural.”—Booklist

“Tortured characters and the story’s fires ignite a dramatic, riveting debut about fathers, sons, and secrets. Readers who appreciate Ann Cleeves’s intricately plotted stories with complicated protagonists will welcome another British series into that fold.”—Library Journal
