An incredible discovery. A race for the truth.
‘Edge of your seat’ is an overused phrase in thriller circles, but at times I felt genuine anxiety for the safety of the protagonists in this intriguing and authentic page-turner. Katherine Prairie’s fully realised characters — the bad guys as much as the good guys — and convincing plot resonate powerfully in today’s uncertain world. Strap in for one hell of a ride.

BLUE FIRE crackles with suspense in this absorbing tale of high stakes gem smuggling that crosses continents in a desperate race against time. Prairie has penned a first-rate thriller and an overall fascinating read.

Like its predecessor, BLUE FIRE is absolutely compelling and so nicely drawn in characterization, detail, and plot that it could have been streamed directly from real life and people.
