Children of the Fire" is the story of six emotionally scarred
children. Each suffers from a childhood experience of life-altering
violence, perpetrated by an individual in the family group. The
novel takes us with these six from childhood through adolescence
and into early adulthood. The children meet as students at
Georgetown University. Bonded in the kinship of their pasts and
despite their differences in status and ethnicity, they look to one
another for understanding and strength, all except one. As the
novel progresses, they become entangled in the web of the killer
among them, even as they struggle to reconcile the horror of their
pasts. On one level, "Children of the Fire" addresses the
horrendous impact of life-altering violence upon maturation. On
another, it is the story of the hunt for the Georgetown Killer. On
still another, it is a story of hope and love, both lost and found.
