Kerry Murphy's entire life is consumed with fire-fighting, the effect of a childhood fire that killed her mother. Her sixth sense about arson is both a blessing and a curse, and when she teams up with Silver, who has an uncanny ability to read other people's minds, the sparks fly as they set out to identify a clever fire-starter. Bernadette Dunne turns in a mixed performance. The men's voices, the weakest element, are a bit of a stretch. And Kerry's Southern accent is at times pronounced, at times nonexistent. However, despite some trite dialogue and weak writing, Dunne manages to draw listeners into the story with an emotional reading. Once engaged, they'll be hard-pressed to stop listening. S.S.R.
