Title Profile & Character Information

White Fire

Annotation
Pendergast thrillers have done very nicely, thank you, but intriguing literary allusions should bring this one special attention. In contemporary times, Corrie Swanson is examining the remains of several miners killed in a series of grizzly bear attacks in 1876 Roaring Fork, CO, when she discovers something shocking. FBI Special Agent Pendergast arrives to investigate just as arson breaks out, and a meeting between Arthur Conan Doyle and Oscar Wilde figures in the backstory. In fact, key to the plot is the reputed discovery of a new Sherlock Holmes tale, actually written by Child and Preston.
