Night on Fire

Author: Douglas Corleone

Kevin Corvelli --  a hotshot New York defense attorney who packed up his bags and hung his shingle in Hawaii to dodge the spotlight --  is deep in his mai tais at a resort when an argument erupts down at the other end of the bar. It's a pair of newlyweds, married that very day on the beach. And since Corvelli doesn't do divorces, he all but dismisses the argument.

That's at least until the fire breaks out later that night, and he barely escapes his hotel room. Most weren't so lucky, including the new husband. His wife, Erin, becomes not only the police's prime suspect for arson and murder but also Corvelli's newest client, and she has a lot working against her, like motive and opportunity, not to mention a history of starting fires. 

The heat gets turned all the way up in Douglas Corleone's scorching legal thriller Night on Fire, his second following the MB/MWA's First Crime Novel Competition winner, One Man's Paradise.

Night on Fire (Kevin Corvelli #2)

Kirkus Reviews:

Despite his susceptibility to anything in a skirt, Kevin tries a mean case and tells a fine story.


Library Journal:

The John Grisham-style twists and turns and cinematic courtroom scenes  keep the pages turning. With its high-octane pace, this is perfect airplane fare. Before you know it, you'll be humming Hawaii Five-0 theme music and thinking about William Lashner's Victor Carl, another lawyer who couldn't resist getting involved with his beautiful clients.
