From the Publisher:
Fired from her job as a TV producer, Sammy Greene gets a second chance when she lands an after-midnight show at a small radio station in LA. It's December 1999, days before the dawn of the new millennium. With Y2K looming and the Santa Ana winds threatening to turn the city into a fiery inferno, LA is on edge--and Sammy's listeners are burning up the phone lines predicting the end of time.||When a listener calls in to report the discovery of a burned body, Sammy starts to investigate and to her horror, learns that the victim is the wayward daughter of an old friend. As she blazes a trail to find answers, Sammy realizes that this death was no accident. All signs point to murder--murder conveniently obscured by the raging wildfires.||But Sammy's investigation takes a chilling turn when she uncovers a sinister plot that could claim thousands of innocent lives. There's evil at work in the City of the Angels. Time is running out. And Sammy Greene is playing with fire. When the Devil Wind is blowing, anything can happen. Anything.
