Trial by Fire, by J. A. Jance: skillfully, Jance delivers relentless suspense in what is surely her finest novel yet in this riveting and addictive series.

In the heat of the Arizona desert, a raging fire pushes temperatures to a deadly degree, and one woman is left to burn. Pulled barely breathing from the fire, the victim has no idea who she is, let alone who would do this to her, or why.

In her hospital bed she drifts in and out of consciousness, her only means of communicating a blink of the eye. And then an angel appears. Misguidedly known around town as the “Angel of Death,“ Sister Anselm has devoted her life to working as an advocate for unidentified patients.

To her burn patient, she is a savior. But to this Jane Doe’s would-be killer, Sister Anselm’s efforts pose a serious threat. Justice is fiercely pursued, but what is discovered is a secret even darker and more twisted than one could have imagined.
