New from from Five Star Mysteries: Marc Paoletti's Scorch.

About the book, from the publisher:

Hollywood special effects pyrotechnician and ex-Navy SEAL David Cole is forced to relive the horror of war when a trained killer from his past, hired by a ruthless film producer, tries to murder him by burning him alive. The killer isn't successful, but the attack does take the life of Cole's beloved son, and leaves Cole horribly burned. Framed for the crime and pursued by police, Cole must endure unspeakable pain while using his knowledge of pyrotechnic effects and urban warfare to hunt the men responsible and fashion his own brand of justice. But time is running out. As Cole's ravaged body deteriorates, so does his grip on reality. Soon, Cole becomes a threat to both friend and foe alike, which is nothing compared to the price he could ultimately pay in this edge-of-your-seat action-thriller.
