White Fire (Pendergast, #13)  Special Agent Pendergast arrives at an exclusive Colorado ski resort to rescue his protégée, Corrie Swanson, from serious trouble with the law. His sudden appearance coincides with the first attack of a murderous arsonist who--with brutal precision--begins burning down multimillion-dollar mansions with the families locked inside. After springing Corrie from jail, Pendergast learns she made a discovery while examining the bones of several miners who were killed 150 years earlier by a rogue grizzly bear. Her finding is so astonishing that it, even more than the arsonist, threatens the resort's very existence.

Drawn deeper into the investigation, Pendergast uncovers a mysterious connection between the dead miners and a fabled, long-lost Sherlock Holmes story--one that might just offer the key to the modern day killings as well.

Now, with the ski resort snowed in and under savage attack--and Corrie's life suddenly in grave danger--Pendergast must solve the enigma of the past before the town of the present goes up in flames.

This is a first time that I have a Pendergast book by Lincoln Child. I was very pleased with the story line and with the characters. A very well thought book. It starts out with his protégée Corrie Swanson trying to find a project for her class. She is trying for a grant she wants to pay for the rest of her schooling herself. She comes across a story from Colorado in a small ski resort where they are in the process of reburying some miners from 150 years ago who were killed by a bear. Once she gets into town things start to happen to her that she cannot explain. Pendergast makes it into town to really safe her the first day. There is so much going on in this story I don’t want to give anything away. A very good book with an ending that I did not see. I was very happy with this book and will look for another one of this Pendergast books again I can get hooked on this character. I got this book from net galley.
