                                                            Someone is trying to kill Lila Hilliard. During the Christmas
                                                            holidays she returns from running errands to find her
                                                            family home in flames, her father and brother trapped

                                                            As Lila desperately tries to piece together who is after

                                                            Part thriller, part historical novel, and part love story,
                                                            Set the Night on Fire paints an unforgettable portrait
                                                            of Chicago during a turbulent time: the riots at the
                                                            Democratic Convention . . . the struggle for power
                                                            between the Black Panthers and SDS . . . and a group
                                                            of young idealists who tried to change the world.

 Libby Fischer Hellmann is the award-winning author of the Ellie Foreman and Georgia Davis mystery series,
 and Nice Girl Does Noir, a two volume short story collection. She also edited the highly praised crime fiction
 anthology, Chicago Blues. She has lived in the Chicago area over thirty years. Set the Night on Fire is her first
 stand-alone novel.

                                                       Praise for Set the Night on Fire:

“Taking a retro break from [her] series, Hellman delivers a top-rate standalone thriller that taps into the antiwar protests of the 1960s
and ‘70s . . . A jazzy fusion of past and present, Hellman’s insightful, politically charged whodunit explores a fascinating period in
American history.” —Publishers Weekly

“A brilliantly-paced historical thriller that spans a generation, transitioning seamlessly from modern-day Chicago to the ‘days of rage’ in
the late 1960s and even farther back . . . This is one of those stories that is best to start early in the day, as it is easy to stay up all night
reading it.” —Lawrence Kane, ForeWord Reviews

“This wonderfully written roller-coaster ride will make a fan out of anyone who hasn’t read this author before. And if you’ve always
wanted an inside look into the 60’s generation, Hellmann excels at providing a sensitive, yet realistic, look at this turbulent time. With
compassion, reflection, and just enough objectivity, she adeptly balances the idealism of the era with how it sometimes got it all wrong
despite the best intentions. This novel, as far as I’m concerned, is the best mystery to date in its treatment of that gone-by era that is
far from forgotten. A beautiful, suspenseful, and altogether amazing novel, this is one that shouldn’t be missed.” — Stephanie Padilla,
New Mystery Reader
