Night on Fire

Availability: Ready to download

Fire crawls up the sides of the church. The orange glow thrashes. Blackens the siding. Climbs up onto the steeple. The flames close in on the wedding party trapped inside. When a serial arsonist terrorizes Los Angeles County, FBI profiler Violet Darger heads to California to investigate. The fires keep coming faster. The body count rises, and the threat hangs over the cit Fire crawls up the sides of the church. The orange glow thrashes. Blackens the siding. Climbs up onto the steeple. The flames close in on the wedding party trapped inside. When a serial arsonist terrorizes Los Angeles County, FBI profiler Violet Darger heads to California to investigate. The fires keep coming faster. The body count rises, and the threat hangs over the city as thick as the smog. The case file is brutal -- stuffed with photographs of charred bodies, human faces melted beyond recognition. And when Darger gets up close to the crimes, the real thing, that sense of savagery only intensifies. What kind of a person could carry out such cruelties? Understanding the warped psychology will be the key to solving the case. The suspect seems hellbent on creating a spectacle. Bigger targets. More deaths. He treats setting fires like a Hollywood special effects sequence, like he's building up to the shocking finale. Watch the city burn. It's entertainment. And there's one more factor complicating the investigation: Autumn is settling in over Southern California. The leaves are changing color, and the Santa Ana winds have begun to change directions. The Hollywood Hills are ripe for a forest fire. The arsonist means to make it the biggest one yet. A page-turner packed with heart-stopping suspense. Fans of John Sandford, Michael Connelly, Lisa Regan, and Lisa Gardner should check out the Violet Darger series. Praise for the Violet Darger series: "The Violet Darger books are honestly the best detective novels I've ever read." -- Devin "Wow, just wow! If you like scare-you-half-to-death mystery books this is the one for you. It starts with a bang and just doesn't stop." -- Ada Lavin "Un-put-downable! I cannot wait for this series to grow. If you love Sandford, Slaughter, Kava, Stelljes and Deaver, you’ll LOVE Vargus & McBain!" -- Melody M "Vargus and McBain have, in Violet Darger, created a character that absolutely stands up with some of the greats -- Phillip Marlowe, Dave Robicheaux, Elvis Cole, Charlie Parker, August Dupin, Jack Reacher, Harry Bosch, etc." -- Lucinda E. Snyder "If you liked Silence of the Lambs, you'll love Dead End Girl... At the same time, there's so much attention to detail and organic storytelling that this could easily compete with any of Stephen King's longer works. I found myself completely invested in every character, from the authorities to the killer to the victims themselves." -- eden Hudson "This book reminds me of some of my favorite books in the crime thriller genre - Dark Places by Gillian Flynn, The Collector by John Fowles, the Mr. Mercedes trilogy by Stephen King, and of course Silence of the Lambs. It's not a glimpse...it's a good long look inside the mind of a killer. It's fast paced, it's scary, and it's satisfying." -- Rain "If you are a fan of Silence of the Lambs, this book is a spiritual successor." -- Amazon customer "I devour each installment in this series the instant it is available." -- Shelley R.

    This episode of the Violet Darger stories not only finds Violet back as an FBI Profiler, but working solo on an arson case in California.

    I love Violet Darger, she’s my hero! I grew up watching tv shows like Cops, NCIS, Criminal Minds (my fav), and lots of others too. I’m not a big mystery fan, but I read Thrillers once in awhile. I am a Horror fan though, that’s always been my main genre along with Sci Fi & Fantasy. That said, this is my favorite “Police Procedural” because it’s so much like “Criminal Minds” except that instead of a team.. (besides Loshank..) there is Violet, and she profiles the bad guys for the FBI. I love how s I love Violet Darger, she’s my hero!

Also though we always get a taste of the “Unsub” from their point of view, which is interesting in contrast to the profile she presents. It’s kinda fun to guess who it is.. and I get surprised more often than not! That’s pretty hard to do, most books I can tell what’s going to happen.. even when I read “Gone Girl” I had a feeling that the woman telling the story was unreliable! Anyways another awesome journey and a sad ending but there is still hope... ❤️

    I am a total true crime nerd and a huge fan of these authors. They do a great job of writing thrillers that read almost exactly like real cases, because they are able to get inside the minds of the victims, the killers, and also the people trying to solve the cases in a totally believable way.

From the beginning of the book I was hooked. Now I know exactly what is like to be in the middle of a forest fire. I can feel it, smell it ,be very afraid of it. The criminal is a genuine nutcase!! I dont want to put in any spoilers so I'll just say... Read the book! It is absolutely incredible

    Another hard to put down read. It was fast paced and good to see Violet get back to where she belongs. Enjoyed the story, but missed her not being partnered up with Loshak and the banter back and forth with them. Looking forward to the next book

    Darger's first case since returning to the FBI. She's been sent to L.A. to help track down a serial killer who's also responsible for several deaths. This book isn't for the faint of heart, there are a couple of places that are gruesome. Burning to death isn't easy to read about but don't let that stop you from reading this book. This is the best book in this series so far. The first time the authors have kept me from guessing who the killer is until they wanted me to know and that's not easy to Darger's first case since returning to the FBI.

All opinions are my own. Violet Darger is back! Night on Fire marks Violet Darger’s return as FBI profiler. After a brief stint in the public sector as a consultant and having a chance to face one of her darkest fears, Violet has returned to her previous life a little more battered but hopefully wiser. Not one to take things easily, Darger immediately finds herself chasing a serial arsonist in Los Angeles. With the help of an old associate, Violet seems to settle back into the groove as she develops a rapport with the local law enforcement. But, with one false lead after another, she begins to wonder if the culprit may be closer than they can even imagine. As the crimes escalate, Violet finds herself in a race against time before she becomes the next casualty. For me, Night on Fire marks a strong return of beloved character Violet Darger back into the ranks of the FBI. While she is still without her trusty partner, Victor Loshak, we do see the return of one-time fling and fellow law enforcer Casey Luck as he has transferred out to the City of Angels to provide for his daughter. While a bit awkward at first, the duo manages to work well to coordinate the efforts of the various agencies in tracking and apprehending the criminal. Night on Fire is the 6th book in the Violet Darger series of books, but counting the shorter novellas releases it’s actually closer to the 9th. Beginning with Dead End Girl, through the detour of the consultancy and now returning back to “home base” so to speak with Night on Fire, McBain and Vargus have created a witty, relatable character that has had their ups and downs but through it, all remain true to herself. Don’t feel intimidated that this is technically the 9th book that is Violet Darger focused as all of the books are written in such a way that they can be read stand-alone or as part of a larger storyline. Yet another strong installment in the series and after the events that transpired, I am looking forward to the next book in the series, not only for the inevitable Darger/Loshak reunion but also to see if the events of Night on Fire have rekindled any of the prior Darger/Luck chemistry.

    3.5 stars I enjoyed this “pulp thriller,” because it’s been a while since I’ve read a book about a serial arsonist and arson crimes. This is a mid-paced book which sometimes slows considerably.

Internal monologues illuminate the arsonist’s thoughts, motives, history and evolution. The author gives us hair-raising glimpses into the arsonist’s freewheeling but creepy thoughts as he drives through the LA night. He talks of pimps & prostitutes; the Night Stalker; Hollywood lights & glitz; the Black Dahlia; the MS-13; pushers and pedophiles; OJ Simpson slicing off his wife’s head; violence of Compton and Watts; the Manson Family; raging infernos on the hills; the Santa Ana winds; and the Menendez brothers. I read “Night on Fire” as a stand-alone, but reading previous books would help readers recall several named but faceless characters. I knocked off a star, because very early in the book, I predicted the TSTL behavior of the two FBI protagonists. I did an eye roll at the oh-so-fortuitously-timed, lachrymose moment as the protagonists are holding hands during the maudlin ending in the ICU.

Again, it's been a while since I read the previous books, but I recall quite a bit of personal angst as Violet dealt with her demons and personal issues. This book contained very little of that (of course, there is a bit of tension between Violet and Casey, due to their past history) and focused largely on the case. Although I enjoyed the previous books, too great a focus on personal drama tends to make me lose interest after a while. So I was very happy that the storyline of "Night on Fire" was more "procedural" and touched only lightly on personal drama. It's a suspenseful story and I didn't identify the arsonist until the author intentionally unveiled his identity. Looking forward to the next installment! Hoping that maybe some of the secondary characters (Captain Beck!) will play a role in future books.

    Violet Darger is back profiling for the FBI after a tumultuous leave of absence. This is by far her most dangerous case. That’s saying a lot since she hunts serial killers for a living. When the Santa Ana winds blow the pyromaniacs come out to play. The dark twisted mind of a murderer is sometimes difficult to understand the need for revenge even if only in their imagination. When you add the need for fire, blazing and speaking to them in a language meant only for the demented.

    Best Violet Darger yet! It seems as though the short time away from the FBI is just what Violet needed to get her head back in to the right place. Only her first case back is an arson case and those can be very difficult. She's really looking forward too working with Victor Loshak again only to find out she's not. She ends up partnered with none other than Casey Luck. A lot of surprises. I was even surprised by who the arsonist turned out to be.

    I liked the concept, but Night on Fire is very slow moving. I believe the reason for this is that L.T. Vargus and Tim Mcbain spent a lot of time in the antagonist head. There was a lot of describing and detail. For me the suspense was there yet it was different than most of the Violet Darger Series.

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced reader's copy.

    Good Violet returns to the FBI after a leave and her first assignment is in L.A. investing arson with casualties. And as luck would have it Casey Luck has been transferred to L.A. Now they are on the case together to bring the perpetrator to justice. This is a very interesting and intriguing storyline that kept me entertained. I look forward to the next adventure of Violet Darger.

    Vargus and McBain do it again Always love me some new Darger! And she's back working with Casey Luck. Bonus! The story is satisfying and exciting, as I've come to expect from these two. No spoilers, but there is a scene with a car barreling through fire- filled roads... the description had my stomach dropping and clenching as if I was in the car with them! Visceral experience! Just terrific.

    Not a favorite of the Darger novels FBI profiler, Violet Darger, returns in this novel. She’s assigned a case in California, where she pairs up with Casey Luck again. Together they work to save the day with a new character, Captain Beck. I like Captain Beck and I am a dedicated Darger fan. But, I can’t give this one 5 stars. Parts dragged, while the suspect went on and on extolling the glory of fire. I had trouble staying in the story.

    Read It In One Sitting! I just love this series! I enjoy the characters, as they started to feel like people I know from the first book. This story deals with fire, which is something that I am terrified of, so I wasn’t sure if I would like it, but once I started, I couldn’t put it down! I honestly didn’t see the revelation of the bad guy coming, which made it more fun. I’m looking forward to book 7!

    Really good! Loved the pyro angle. Paragraphs of unnecessarily self-indulgent word salad could’ve been excised in a few spots, but otherwise, I found this book tighter than the last. I didn’t guess who it was until almost the reveal, which is good. I look forward to Darger working a case with Loshak at some point...

    Yes I am hooked on Violet but still not enamored of Luck. The first gruesome twosome remains my favorite. I would like an ending where she doesn't almost die. I mean how many times can that happen? I wasn't initially a fan of the arsonist story but eventually I warmed up. (Pun intended) My preference is still grizzly serial killers.

    Not smoke and mirrors Fire. Really horrible fire with an up close look at the arsonist and what drives compulsion. As always, this story is dynamic and intensely focused with Violet leading the charge. Real drama on every page.

    Another great book in a great series Please, please keep Violet Darger books coming! They've been page turners from the very beginning and not a one has been the slightest disappointing.

    They did it again! This is a great Violet Darger story. Violet seems to have grown up in this one and lost the acerbic edge..(good). You will be on the edge of your seat and cheering for Violet all the way. Happy reading!
