by Gillian Flynn as “so spectacular . . . amazing,” Lyndsay Faye is
back with her biggest adventure yet!No
one in 1840s New York likes fires, but Copper Star Timothy Wilde least
of all. So when an arsonist with an agenda begins threatening Alderman
Robert Symmes, a corrupt and powerful leader high in the Tammany Hall
ranks, Wilde isn’t thrilled to be involved. His reservations escalate
further when his brother Valentine announces that he’ll be running
against Symmes in the upcoming election, making both himself and
Timothy a host of powerful enemies.
Meanwhile, the love of Wilde’s life, Mercy Underhill, unexpectedly
shows up on his
doorstep and takes under her wing a starving orphan with a tenuous
grasp on reality. It soon becomes clear that this wisp of a girl may be
the key to stopping those who have been setting fire to buildings
across the city—if only they can understand her cryptic descriptions
and find out what she knows. Boisterous and suspenseful, The
Fatal Flame is
filled with beloved Gotham personalities as well as several new stars,
culminating in a fiery and shocking conclusion.
