There is a secret, hidden within a body, burning within the flames, that will change it all. A man's charred corpse is found in the latest of a string of arson attacks in the French city of Orleans. His is the first death. An extremist group claim responsibility but their whereabouts cannot be found. Police inspector Capitaine Ines Picault and her team must track them down before more people die. Their only clue? The name of a woman who has been dead for over 500 years: Joan of Arc. She is one of the great enigmas of history - a young woman who came from nowhere to lead the armies of France to victory against England. And who died the same fiery death as the man whose body has just been discovered. As more fires rage in Orleans and the death toll mounts, Picault must look to the past and the secrets which lie buried there to unravel the mysteries of the present. As the clock counts down, she must challenge some fundamental truths to save those closest to her...

'Into the Fire is a wonderful blend of fast and furious action, bravura storytelling, a palpable sense of place - Orleans past and present - and a whodunnit that will keep you guessing until the final pages. Fabulous.' -- Kate Mosse
'Riveting for both the pulse-pounding action and the moral and character complexity' Bookseller
'Expertly blends a very plausible solution to a genuine historical mystery with a compulsive contemporary thriller. The result, as the title suggests, is intoxicatingly fiery reading' -- Robert Goddard
'Manda Scott's writing is so grippingly vivid that once you begin reading, it becomes your reality. Highly recommended' -- Elizabeth Chadwick
'To say I was blown away is an understatement of the greatest magnitude. Into the Fire is in a word, magnificent. Page turning. Visceral. Mesmerising. Evocative - it's so evocative. It's filthy-nailed, sweat-stained, blood-drenched, gut-wrenching, tear-inducing. It's everything I want a book to be - I did not want it to end' -- Ben Kane
