Trapped on earth with little, if any, chance of returning to their planet, the Hannarians were trying to uncover the arsonists before their own alien identities were discovered. Earth was contaminated by an accelerant which, if heated would ignite and could completely burn an entire building in minutes.
Something Like the Truth is fast paced, intriguing and as always with her books, I had to read it in one setting. Couldn't put it down. I have to admit that I enjoyed Patricia's book so much that there was no favorite part in her book for me. I had to quote her by picking something random. "We don't think we can land anywhere right now," Bren said, and all of turned to look at him. "There's a massive layer of accelerant in the ocean now, too. It's floating on the surface along the coastline and spreading. Do you know whether it can ignite above water or not?"
Patricia Gilliam is a great writer for all ages and I highly recommend her books.
