Smoke Showing is a mystery/romance set in Upstate New York. The novel features vivid imagery and

a fast pace as it takes its characters on a twist-filled ride from a seemingly ordinary house fire

 to a smuggling conspiracy.


Volunteer firefighter Jake Crowley leads an arson investigation into the dark side of picturesque Upstate

 where brutal winters and a struggling economy produce deadly results.


As Jake unravels the rantings of a fire victim, he discovers a tangle of secrets and deceit surrounding

the bankruptcy of one of the last businesses to survive from the 19th century.


Amid a stoic and independent community, he also finds the possibility of love that can lift him beyond

 his isolated life after his own dreams crashed so suddenly and left him feeling that his glory days,

 like those of the region, were long gone.
