Publication: St Martins, 1997, New York
First edition. Fine in dust jacket. Introduces Dana Coakley, once an aspiring actress, but now supplementing her income by working as the superintendent of an apartment building and by tutoring disadvantaged inner-city kids. One of her kids confides in Dana that he believes a fatal fire in a low-income housing building was actually the work of an arsonist, and not an accident. Dana begins investigating, but her snooping unearths more questions than it answers. What does a wealthy real-estate mogul have to do with the fire? What does a teenage drug lord know about it?
