Read by Holter Graham.
When thirty-five-year-old litigator Hunter Lee decides to turn his back on the rat race that has made him rich but cost him his marriage, he takes the advice of his brother and goes to Montana. There he joins the elite Smoke Jumpers, marines of the firefighting world, who parachute out of C-5 airplanes to contain the worst forest fires of the remote West. But escape from the ugly side of human nature is hardly what he finds when word reaches him of a small town's little secret involving arson and the reckless quest for profits at the expense of lives.

When thirty-five-year-old lawyer Hunter Lee decides to turn his back on the New York City rat race that has made him rich but cost him his marriage, he takes his brotherâs advice and sets out to build a new life in the beautiful but isolated town of Fort Mason, Montana. However, escape is hardly what he finds there.
Hunter befriends Paul Brule, a fire jumperâone of an elite corps of firefighters who parachute into remote wilderness areas to put out blazes before they become infernosâand gets a terrifying firsthand look at the reality of vast tracts of forest being reduced to ash in seconds by hundred-foot walls of flame. In this tiny town where everyone seems to have a secret, Hunter comes to suspect that this particular rash of summer fires is anything but accidental and could, in fact, be serving a more sinister purpose.
As Hunter follows his instincts, Montana becomes a crucible where good and evil collideâand where one man, running from his past, takes on the burden of exposing the guilty while saving himself and those he cares about most from the greatest danger they have ever faced.
