White Fire
White Fire | Douglas Preston, Lincoln Child
11 posts | 29 read | 7 to read
Past and present collide in Preston and Child's most thrilling novel ever . . . WHITE FIRE Special Agent Pendergast arrives at an exclusive Colorado ski resort to rescue his protge, 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. After springing Corrie from jail, Pendergast learns she made a discovery while examining the bones of several miners who were killed 150 years earlier by a rogue grizzly bear. Her finding is so astonishing that it, even more than the arsonist, threatens the resort's very existence. 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. Now, with the ski resort snowed in and under savage attack--and Corrie's life suddenly in grave danger--Pendergast must solve the enigma of the past before the town of the present goes up in flames.

A perfect book for this hot summer. It's set in Roaring Forks, Colorado (a fictional town I think is based on places like Aspen and Vail) in the middle of winter. It revolves around greed, murder, silver mines, and Arthur Conan Doyle. Preston and Child write suspense with a touch of horror. I don't want to say too much and spoil the story.

The used bookstore called to tell me they had a copy of this if I wanted it (yes, please), and I couldn't leave with just one book. Hoping The Reincarnationist trilogy is good! #bookhaul

jessicarenee I've read a lot of M J Rose-- I really liked it. Hope you do too! 3y
DGRachel @dsfisher In my defense, I had a coupon and store credit, so my total was under $30! 😳(please don't disown me) 3y

TobeyTheScavengerMonk Love Dan Simmons! Haven't read that one but I bought it for my history teacher dad a few years ago and he loved it. 3y
DGRachel @TobeyTheScavengerMonk I loved The Terror, but bailed on Drood. The blurb on this one looks really interesting, so my I'm hopeful that I'll enjoy it. 🤓 3y
Suet624 What a nice bookstore to give you a call. 3y
DGRachel @Suet624 They have a great database where they track requests, so when they get "new" books, they check their list and call the people who are seeking those books. It's been great for me, as I've now gotten most of the Pendergast series in just a couple of months. 3y

#TBRtemptation post! This is the 13th Special Agent Pendergast installment, & I'm told it can be read stand-alone. Pendergast heads to an exclusive Colorado ski resort to get his protégée, Corrie, out of jail. She made a 150-year-old discovery concerning miners killed by a grizzly. Meanwhile, a murderous arsonist begins burning down mansions with families locked inside. An old Sherlock Holmes story links the 2. #blameLitsy #blameMrBook ?

Reecaspieces Love agent Pendergast! 3y

#snow/men #12daysofxmasphoto These are both about men adventuring in the snow. White Fire is from one of my favorite series and Deception Point was one of my favorite Dan Brown books.

Book 13 of the series. Best yet. Pendergast hunts down a Sherlock Holmes story to figure out what is going on in roaring fork Colorado where Corrie Swanson has been researching old bear attacks

I stayed up late (early this morn) to read this in one sitting. I didn't love the books prior to this (the Helen trilogy) and had put the series on hold. I'm glad I picked this up because Corrie's back, and things kicked off w/Arthur Conan Doyle and Oscar Wilde. Great story and characters, though the latter are more fully developed in earlier books. History, forensics, and bears! Oh my!
