Douglas Corleone's second look at the seedy side of life, lawyering and untimely death on Oahu in the 21st century...is a page-turner in the best sense of the word.
 
The John Grisham–style twists and turns and cinematic courtroom scenes keep the pages turning as we try to figure out if there is more to this fire than a honeymoon gone sour. VERDICT With its high-octane pace, this is perfect airplane fare. Before you know it, you’ll be humming Hawaii Five-0 theme music and thinking about William Lashner’s Victor Carl, another lawyer who couldn’t resist getting involved with his beautiful clients.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312552270, Hardcover)

Kevin Corvelli---a hotshot New York defense attorney who packed up his bags and hung his shingle in Hawaii to dodge the spotlight---is deep in his mai tais at a resort when an argument erupts down at the other end of the bar. It’s a pair of newlyweds, married that very day on the beach. And since Corvelli doesn’t do divorces, he all but dismisses the argument.

That’s at least until the fire breaks out later that night, and he barely escapes his hotel room. Most weren’t so lucky, including the new husband. His wife, Erin, becomes not only the police’s prime suspect for arson and murder but also Corvelli’s newest client, and she has a lot working against her, like motive and opportunity, not to mention a history of starting fires.

The heat gets turned all the way up in Douglas Corleone’s scorching legal thriller Night on Fire, his second following the MB/MWA's First Crime Novel Competition winner, One Man’s Paradise.
