"House on Fire is classic whodunit wrapped in a modern world of technology and current events, with enough twists to keep you reading long into the night.” Brad Taylor, New York Times bestselling author
“Holter Graham…imbues Nick with youthful energy balanced by a steely demeanor when trouble arises. A colorful cast, including a combative drug addict and a handful of children, are given unique voices.
