Lindsey Sloan teaches the best and brightest students at Randolph-Lowen High School--exceptional teens with promising futures far from their small Alabama hometown. So when brash detective Jace Nolan arrives from up north and accuses her kids of setting a series of fires in local black churches, Lindsey is furious. No matter how Jace tries to convince her, Lindsey can't believe her pupils could do something so horrible, let alone be addicted to the rush of getting away with it. But when her attraction to Jace places her in mortal danger and people begin dying, Lindsey can no longer be sure just what her students are capable of. If Jace is right, it's up to the two of them to outsmart these criminal minds--before they carry out the ultimate thrill-kill.
