Called the Chessman for the game pieces left behind in the wake of deadly fires, the arsonist is intent on making The Last Move.
Arson Investigator Katie Sullivan is determined to find the serial arsonist who murdered her father, but the arsonist is playing a deadly game with her, and only the winner will live.
Sheriff Drew Winters is just as determined to keep Katie, the woman he loves, alive and, if need be, save her from herself and her blind, reckless quest to succeed. They were a couple before and could be one again.
Flames and death await them at every turn. Can they survive? Who will die and who will ultimately declare checkmate depends on Katie’s skill as an arson investigator and Drew’s abilities as a detective to outsmart the Chessman.
