A Novel of Suspense
Fire Trap

No one writes with the power, authority, and poetry that Earl Emerson has demonstrated in his action-packed novels about fire and the people who make their living fighting it. In Firetrap, Trey Brown is a man tormented by race, by family, and now by a political firestorm that erupted after fourteen people die in an illegal Seattle nightclub…and because someone must take the fall.
