Detective Harry Denton's next case is a hot one when the magnificent mansion across the street from his apartment is consumed in a suspicious fire. The blaze has all the scorch marks of the East Nashville Arsonist, a phantom firebug. This time, he left a dead body behind. The bludgeoned and left-to-burn victim was a well-known psychotherapist...and the man that Harry's ex-wife, Lanie, was about to marry. Thanks to the doctor's will, which leaves a chunk of money to his fiancée, the cops think Lanie is the killer. It's up to Harry to match wits with the firebug before his ex goes up the river.
