Pulitzer-Prize winning investigative journalist Liam Mulligan loves living in Providence, Rhode Island, especially the predominately Italian, crime-infested neighborhood of Mount Hope in which he was raised. Unfortunately, a firebug has turned his small neighborhood into a living hell. Scores of innocent people, including some of his best friends, are being killed and maimed by senseless fires. Mulligan's determination to find the firebug uncovers a cruel conspiracy that will put his life in mortal danger. From official release/information:
Product Description: Liam Mulligan is as old school as a newspaper man gets. His beat is Providence, Rhode Island, and he knows every street and alley. He knows the priests and prostitutes, the cops and street thugs. He knows the mobsters and politicians--who are pretty much one and the same. Someone is systematically burning down the neighborhood Mulligan grew up in, people he knows and loves are perishing in the flames, and the public is on the verge of panic. With the police looking for answers in all the wrong places, and with the whole city of Providence on his back, Mulligan must find the hand that strikes the match.
