FDNY marshal Georgia Skeehan returns in this new thriller from the author who will do for firefighting what Patricia Cornwell did for forensic science (Lee Child, New York Times–bestselling author).

Will do for firefighting what Patricia Cornwell did for forensic science. HTA fires-though rare over the last decade-are so ferocious that they can melt a building's steel and concrete framework in minutes. Georgia soon unearths another startling possibility: the blaze may be connected to three other unsolved New York fires-and to several eerie, scripture-laden letters from a madman who calls himself the "Fourth Angel. A body is found in a reservoir fifty miles north of New York City.

Comments to eBook Flash Over

Flash Over is an action packed fictional story about the New York City Fire Department and arson investigation. There are many twists and turns in this story and many characters, but the main characters are so real you feel you know them personally, and the author, Suzanne Chazin, being a
resident of Manhattan she really knows New York City which makes the places and living so very real. I loved the reality and she is also very familiar with firefighting and arson investigation. This combination makes for the best mystery novel I have ever read. I also learned a lot about the nature and science of fires and fire investigation. I am so happy I discovered this book and it would be especially interesting for someone familiar with the five boroughs of New York City. I highly recommend this book to any reader. You will not be sorry for spending time with book.

How I missed Flash Over when it came out is beyond me. I was fascinated by Suzanne Chazin's first novel, The Fourth Angel, and knew she was working on the next installment. Yet, I didn't see this book until last week. Flash Over is just as good as The Fourth Angel, yet it takes a different approach in the lives of Fire Marshall Georgia Skeehan and Mac Marenko.
Georgia and her partner Carter are called in to investigate the fire that killed retired doctor Louise Rosen. While everyone wants to believe she was drunk and smoking in bed, the clues to the fire don't add up to support this theory. As Georgia and Carter try to piece together what happened, they begin to hit a brick wall with the upper brass telling them to back off. Then, Dr. Rosen's former partner dies in a fire. Things begin to come to light as Georgia finds out both doctors where part of the committee who decides if firemen are entitled to full medical retirement when they become ill and can no longer work. It seems the two doctors had a history of denying benefits to men who had gave their hearts to their jobs.
Then Georgia finds out someone is planning on blowing up a pipeline that runs under New York. This is scary when you realize how devastating it could actually be if it were to happen. The person threatening calls himself Robin Hood. He feels Georgia inadvertently helped him take out one victim. He now wants to deal with her and the upper brass, police, and local politicians don't want her around for fear of what she may uncover about the past. Georgia pieces together enough to know Robin Hood must be connected to the fire department some way. Things quickly escalate into an action pack finale.
Flash Over written in a different tone from The Fourth Angel. While there is still well plotted action and graphic descriptions of fires the destruction they leave behind, Ms. Chazin has given up more background information on the recurring characters. We see how the relationship between Georgia and Mac is going nowhere, how he is unable to commit or even let his fellow workers and family know they are involved. We also have more of a glimpse of how Georgia has to combat the sexist attitudes directed toward women in a male dominated field.
Flash Over is well written, with tons of action, personal relationships, and a dynamite ending. I will be making notation to myself to start looking for the third installment around May of 2003
Still In Mind
As a young lawyer defending a fire death case, the world of arson and arson investigators was one I looked at in a combination of awe and fear. It was in those days I first heard the word "flashover" and saw first hand the horrendous consequences to human life these explosions hold.
To a firefighter, never far from personal disaster, the physics of fire are occupational hazards. It is those occupational hazards that lead us into the bureaucracy of fire pensions and the horror of two fire related deaths of medical board members, That would be mystery enough for many authors, but Suzanne Chazin takes us down an even more horrifying road as a killer plans to level fifteen square blocks of New York.
Fire Marshal Georgia Skehann, still learning her trade, is drawn into the swirling vortex of revenge, greed, politics and fire.
Underestimated by some, betrayed by others, Marshal Skeehan perseveres as a woman in a world of strong men. Likewise, Suzanne Chazin is hitting her stride and making her mark with imaginative plots and great subject knowledge.
Vut
Mystery writers have gone after all sorts of occupations for their heroes and heroines, but author Chazin has opted to go into territory she knows well: arson. Her heroine, Georgia Skeehan, is a New York fire marshal. Her investigation of an horrific apartment fire is described in harrowing detail from the point of view of the victim. The next fire scene is breath-stoppingly real, primarily because of the inability of Georgia and her partner to do anything whatsoever to help the victim trapped in his garage but must, like the reader, remain on the outside, watching in horror.
There are great descriptions in the book--of the vast substructure beneath Grand Central Station, of a number of fires--particularly the toxic warehouse fire that is at the root of this book's narrative. The protagonist(s) are fairly obvious from about the halfway point but, to the author's credit, she none the less manages to make the events sufficiently compelling to keep one reading. The firefighters and their families are well drawn--real people doing real jobs; particularly appealing is Grandmother Ida with her garish wardrobe, and Georgia's son Richie. Georgia is feisty, determined and resourceful: a worthy heroine.
One minor quibble: just about every character sighs--often. However, it doesn't detract from the entertainment value of Flash Over.
Recommended.
