California’s Inland Empire is ruled by money, sex, and threats—but one murder investigation could bring it all down. Combining psychological cat-and-mouse games with a cast of broken, deftly rendered characters, “Combustion” plumbs the darkest, most twisted depths of greed against the wild, dangerous backdrop of Southern California.

“A page-turner with a kicker at the end—you can’t ask for anything better. That’s what Martin J. Smith delivers in Combustion. Intricately plotted and full of character, this is one great ride that burns with the intensity of a California wildfire.”

—Michael Connelly, #1 New York Times bestselling author
