Written by the author of "The Horse Whisperer". The fire was to change so many lives so utterly started with a single shaft of lightning.It struck a mountain ridge on a still and moonless night and nestled like a pupa of death in the desiccated heart of an ancient pine.
There were witnesses no doubt to this sudden splintering of air and wood, but none that was human. The woman camped nearby with her group of troubled teenagers slept on, hearing nothing....but one of them will be lost forever...
His name is Connor Ford and he falls like an angel of mercy from the sky, braving the flames to save the woman he loves but knows he cannot have.
In the wake of the fire, he embarks on a journey to the dark heart of human suffering, travelling to the world's wars and disasters to take photographs that find him fame but never happiness. Reckless of a life he no longer wants, again and again he dares death to take him, until another fateful day in another continent, when he must walk through fire once more....
