[Read by Ken Howard]

Fire Lover is the incredible true story of John Orr who, as a young boy growing up in Los Angeles, watched with awe as firefighters scrambled to put out blazes with a seeming disregard for their own lives. Wanting to emulate his heroes, he later became a fireman with the Glendale Fire Department. An eccentric loner who made few friends, Orr moonlighted as a security guard, eventually becoming a fire captain and one of Southern California's most renowned serial-arson investigators. -- Though he successfully helped apprehend a string of petty arsonists, there was one serial criminal Orr couldn't track down -- one who was responsible for the deaths of four people. These perfectly executed blazes were set by a fire lover who used the same simple yet devastating device time after time. He went undiscovered until one day when he left a fingerprint, one clue investigators could match. When they did, they were stunned to discover that the print belonged to none other than John Orr. -- Using interviews, case records, and hundreds of thousands of pages of court transcriptions, Joseph Wambaugh writes a chilling, sophisticated, and suspenseful story that is destined to rank beside his previous bestsellers.
