‘The Fireman’ by Joe Hill

In his new thriller, The Fireman, Hill portrays the world as a dark place, suppressed by an epidemic.

Society is at risk of a disease called “Dragonscale,” which leaves black and gold marks on its victims before causing them to combust.

Most can’t escape the fate of bursting into flames, except for one – the Fireman.

Mysteriously, he has the ability to control the fire ignited within him and tries to save others from “Cremation Squads.”
