It’s the hottest summer on record. The streets are shimmering, walking outside is like walking into a furnace, and yet, someone is still setting fires…

 

Milwaukee homicide detective Ellie MacIntosh is called to an arson scene. She finds bewildered home owners, an unidentified corpse, and cryptic clues that lead nowhere. Is it a random killing? The ritualistic nature of the crime points to no, and Ellie fears that the already-oppressive summer is just starting to heat up.

 

Ellie doesn’t like her obnoxious new partner, Jason Santiago. That’s fine with Jason—he doesn’t like her either. When Ellie becomes convinced that their investigation is tied to a cold case, Jason finds himself grudgingly starting to agree. It might be hot as hell outside, but the details of the brutal homicide chill him to the bone…

 

As fires rage and the body count rises, Ellie and Jason must put their personal disagreements aside to catch a ruthless killer. The heat is on.

 

Charred is the second book in the thrilling Detective Ellie MacIntosh suspense series by Kate Watterson.

Book Excerpts

Read an Excerpt

Chapter 1


 
JULY 3, PRESENT DAY
The world shimmered.
It was that damn hot.
Detective Ellie MacIntosh said an obscene word under her breath as she slid out of the car and the humidity rolled over her like a tidal wave.
With a grimace, she said, “Sorry I’m late. Long story. Okay, why am I here?”
Not her usual greeting, but it had already been one hell of a day. Never mind that the arch of sky was a glowing blue and the air thick enough that when she took in a sharp breath she got a lungful of acrid smoke.
