A Burning Desire

by Cynthia Chow

Initially, the minor cases of arson in Swatara Creek, Pennsylvania seem to be mischievous acts committed by bored teenagers. That doesn’t mean that the relatively new Police Chief Aaron Brubaker isn’t nervous, though, especially since the former chief Daniel “Sticks” Hetrick is no longer available for consultation now that he is a county detective working for the prosecutor. Tensions only increase as prominent businesses are targeted and police officer Flora Vastine begins to receive gifts and notes from the suspected arsonist.
