The Blaze by Chad Dungas--Another Iraq war backstory, but a very different book that takes place in Montana. Matthew Rose returns home to settle his father’s estate and try and bring closure to memories that have haunted him since he was a young boy. Plagued by a brain injury caused by an IED explosion, he struggles to understand what happened to his family on a long-ago night when arson destroyed a local store. History repeats itself and this time there is a body inside. Excellent character development brings the story to life.
