a very good first novel worthy of widespread acclaim

Lydia Strong has a gift of acutely accurate intuition. She can find clues that elude others. She helped determine the killer of her mother fifteen years ago and, now, as a thirty year old woman, she is a bestselling author of true crime books and a consultant for law enforcement. Young women are disappearing in the Santa Fe area. Lisa suspects something is very wrong and calls her friend, PI Jeffrey Mark, ex FBI agent, into town for his help. The two investigate the deaths and soon realize a serial killer may be at work. Things heat up when the killer targets Lydia as his next victim.Lisa Miscione has written a very good first novel worthy of widespread acclaim. She has the ability to write with great beauty in describing the landscape and setting of this character rich debut. There is enough of a feeling of underlying dread to keep the reader's interest at all times and the relatively rapid pacing also contributed to the pages flying. Overall a well recommended debut.

Terrific story and characters

I hope this is the first in a long series about Lydia Strong and Jeffrey Mark. Lisa Miscione has created two characters that you can care about. Their lives and issues are so well developed that you seem to know them, their fears and their motivations. Her writing is both crisp and haunting. The story takes us to Angel Fire New Mexico, a small town suddenly beset by a high number of missing persons, possibly a serial killer's doing. The problem is that the bodies are not found and the missing persons could have just fled. Lydia, in town to rest after the publication of her most recent true crime book, is certain that something sinister is afoot and she calls upon her friend and partner, ex FBI agent Jeffrey Mark, to help convince the authorities. The reader is fortunate to be along for every carefully plotted step of this fascinating investigation.I could not put this book down. I can't wait for the sequel, 'The Darkness Gathers', and then for even more new episodes.

Great new author, riveting new book

Lisa Miscione's debut novel, Angel Fire, is a real thrill ride. Great character development and compelling relationships between the main characters add depth and intrigue to the already strong story line. I look forward to her next book.

A Gripping Page Turner Not To Be Missed!

ANGEL FIRE is a scary, suspenseful mystery that keeps you guessing --page after page. A wonderfully entertaining read, which I could not put down! The author quickly pulls you into the story and keeps you there with her well- researched attention to detail, vivid descriptions and naturally flowing prose. It was more like watching a movie in my mind, than reading words on a page. Lisa Miscione made the story come alive, which for me seperates a good writer from a great one. Welcome to my bookshelf, Lisa Miscione. I look forward to the next one!!

Move over, Sue Grafton!

Step aside, Patricia Cornwell! There's a new kid in town, and her name is Lisa Miscione. She's created an engaging and believable protagonist -- crime writer Lydia Strong -- and she's involved her in an exciting, and unusual, story. Personally, I was carried along the whole way -- even though there were times when the story took some very harrowing turns -- and I'm already looking forward to the next adventure. (The press stuff says the author is working on a second novel now.) I'll be more than willing to go along for the ride again!
