The accidental carbon monoxide deaths of her brother and sisters in 1966 left Shelly Summers an only child that encountered both sexual and physical abuse. Three of her own children would populate the rural cemetery east of the flashing yellow light in the little hamlet in Central New York having met horrific deaths. Two of which were burned alive. Three other children that had a connection with Shelly would meet a fiery demise and a seventh child would mysteriously drown. Unknown to Shelly, a classmate and fellow Boy Scout of her brother killed in the 1966 carbon monoxide accident would become a fire investigator in the county where Shelly was born and raised. His suspicions of the fires Shelly was affiliated with along with his attention to detail convinced police, prosecutors and fire investigators of multiple counties and agencies to utilize their resources to end the forty-two years of fires that followed Shelly and terminate "Teflon Shelly's" reign of terror.

The author has a unique way of bringing the reader into the story, as the events occur the reader becomes more aquainted with the characters and starts to associate with them. Many of the events, while they appear bizzare, are acually fact driven, which leaves the reader shaking their head, and asking the question over and over, "how could this happen"? and "how could she get away with it for so many years"? But when it comes to good over evil, Good will always come out on top, congrats to the good guy's!

First of all, let me say that I know the author. (over 25yrs) Then let me say that I never ever read a book that gripped me as much as this one and that's no B.S.! There were times in the book when I could actually feel the author take a hard pull on those dreaded cigarettes he smoked

While the story seems to start a little slow, get past the 1st chapter and it is very difficult to put down. An excellent read from a technical basis about a profession most do not know to a personal basis about dedication, it takes you from frustration to final satisfaction of justice long delayed. This is definitely a book for a readerfrom young adult on up.

I found this story based on facts to be alarming. How could a serial arsonist and child killer escape justice for so long? I highly recommend this book.
