Revenge for a tragedy, a fire twenty-five years ago which killed twenty-two children. Must Denny live forever with his father’s fatal mistake?
On Hallowe’en years ago, 16-year-old Denny’s father was involved in a tragic accident that killed 22 children. And it seems one of those children can’t forget.
Denny wants to be like other kids his age, but he’s not allowed to drive or answer the phone and his family moves so often he’s always the new kid in school. Then there are the phone calls: every year, they wake Denny up in the middle of the night. And every year, Denny’s father calmly answers. But this year it’s different. It’s been 25 years since the accident.
When Denny defies his parents one afternoon and answers the phone, he finds himself drawn into a highly-charged relationship with the mystery caller, someone who haunts his days and nights and threatens a deadly revenge.
In this chilling novel, which examines the consequences of a young man’s rebellion against his father’s past, Robert Cormier once again shows himself to be a master of suspense.

Fire under Probe
Usher, 16, to be Questioned
My sister died that day. I wanted to ask her about it. I wanted to know what she saw, what she felt, what it was like to die, but she just looked away from me and said nothing.
Twenty-five years later she is still calling her killer in the middle of the night, but now I see a different mischief in her eyes. More than mischief: malice. She has a new plan for revenge… and a new subject: the killer's sixteen-year-old son.
Robert Cormier once again shows himself a master of suspense in this chilling novel.
