A series of unexplained fires in abandoned buildings baffles Inspector Montgomery and Sergeant Bird of the Nottingham police department. The forensic evidence clearly points to arson, but the motive of the pyromaniac is unclear. Is it vandalism? Kids looking for kicks? Or is it someone with a darker, more lethal motive - someone who will strike again? Old Annie, a vagrant living in an empty house, narrowly escapes a hideous death when inspector Montgomery rescues her from the burning building. The subsequent torching of a pharmacy brings a new dimension to the string of outrages - the grim discovery of a blackened corpse in the wreckage of the shop. When both the pharmacist and a shady businessman trying to peddle illegal drugs turn out to be missing the detectives must find out just who was killed in the fire. The hunt is on for a "pyro" who has become a murderer.
