Summary

Edgar Williams is lost after the tragic death of his wife Jackie and can’t find a way to shake off the black dog. Therapy doesn’t help. His spiritual son Joe suggests leaving it to God. However, he returns to his boxing club, fellowship with the Freemasons, and his Geelong RSL, which help to fill in the hours of loss. A friend suggests a medium, who tells him of some remarkable developments to come in his life. When intruders ransack his home, Edgar hits the main offender with a golf club, putting him in a coma. In court, Edgar calls the judge fig jam (the acronym of the book’s title) and runs away. Finally he is arrested and  – unwilling to apologise to the over-bearing judge – goes to gaol. But happier times are on the horizon and an unexpected turn of events sends Edgar on a path which he never envisaged.

    An inexplicable plague of deadly fire threatens America’s cities and towns in this epic tale of supernatural terror from an acclaimed Grand Master of horror and suspense From Baltimore, Maryland, to San Jose, California, to Homer, Alaska, a rash of devastating and unexplained fires is bringing untold death and destruction to the United States. Unexpectedly and inexplicably, giant fireballs are erupting out of nowhere in private houses, apartment buildings, businesses, malls, and hospitals, incinerating everything and everyone in the vicinity. These are not accidents; every conflagration is of a frighteningly suspicious nature. There is no pattern, there is no warning, and there is no mercy as the body count rapidly soars.   For California security expert Carter Milne, the plague is a nightmare that threatens to unravel her world when it strikes too close to home. For reporter William Ridour, it’s the story of a lifetime. Fireman Frank Vickery sees it as an abomination, and FBI agents McPherson and Bethune suspect it’s the realization of the government’s worst terrorist fears. But the truth these citizens pursue, the horror that now unites them, is something far more terrible, with roots in very dark and poisonous soil—and it’s leading them beyond the borders of normal human experience into a realm of pure preternatural evil.
