Caleb is struggling to get through each day. His best friend is dead, his ex-wife is avoiding him and nightmares are haunting him while he’s awake.
Then a woman is killed in front of him and Caleb’s determined to find out who she was. The trail leads Caleb back to Resurrection Bay. The town is on high alert for bush fires and simmering with racial tension. As Caleb keeps investigation, he uncovers secrets that could stop his and Kat reuniting and threaten his life. But Caleb keeps digging anyway. What is he willing to sacrifice to find the answer he’s looking for?
I received a copy of And Fire Came Down from Bonnier Publishing Australia to review. This is the sequel to Resurrection Bay. You can click the link to see my review of the first book.
The first book had me hooked pretty much right from the start as far as I can remember and because I already knew some of the characters from that book and was invested in their story I was already looking forward to reading this.
I can’t remember if it said how long it had been since the events in the first book but I don’t think it had been more than a couple of months. Caleb is still trying to deal with what happened and the guilt he feels about Kat. I’m not going to say what happened because that would ruin the first book but a lot went down. So if you haven’t read Resurrection Bay then you totally should!
I don’t know if Caleb is just crazy stubborn or he just can’t leave things unsolved but even when it was pretty obvious that he might want to back off because of things happening to people around him, he just couldn’t stop until he got to the bottom of things. Or wouldn’t stop… And then when it all came out I’m not sure Caleb wanted the answers he got. I guess that’s the risk you take when you go looking for them.
There was a twist to And Fire Came Down that I didn’t see coming. I’m pretty sure the same thing happened when I read Resurrection Bay too. Which is one of the reasons I enjoyed both books so much. I love when stories take me by surprise because it doesn’t happen often.
I don’t know if there will be a third book but there were some things that were left open and I’d definitely pick up a third book if it meant getting answers. Plus, I do like Caleb and have enjoyed both Resurrection Bay and And Fire Came Down.
If you haven’t picked up these books then I recommend finding copies.
