At midnight, in a secret medical clinic in Washington, D.C., two foreign doctors and their team are completing plastic surgery on an anonymous client who is changing the appearance of his face, among other things. After the procedure, the client begins to stir-and suddenly the operating room erupts in violence and the clinic is ablaze. Washington police conduct an arson investigation, with inconclusive results. But one tantalizing fragment of evidence suggests that a terrorist bombing may be imminent. The presidential inauguration is quickly approaching and Washington's police, fire, intelligence, military, federal, and White House security teams are making frantic preparations. Because of the strain on manpower, retired Secret Service agent Swamp Morgan is recalled to active duty. His task: investigate the incineration of the medical clinic as a "firefly"- Washington-speak for something that looks like a threat but isn't. As Swamp begins what he thinks is a routine check-and-dismiss, the clinic's missing client begins preparations for his mission: to launch an attack on the American government - a decapitation strike intended to wipe out both the outgoing and incoming administrations. As the crucial day approaches, Swamp, the only agent to take the firefly seriously, must operate alone as the clock clicks down to a breathtaking finale. Filled with brilliant twists and turns and heart-in-your throat suspense, Firefly offers first class entertainment from beginning to end.

Someone is burning Baltimore. At night, sirens shriek through the air as red light blazes in the night sky. Businesses and houses are burning. There’s a madman on the loose, and it’s not just about the fire—he’s getting pretty fond of killing, too. There aren’t any leads, but there is a terrible media frenzy that gives this monster the nickname “Firefly.” Dr. McKayla MacDonald doesn’t want to see her beautiful city burned to the ground, but she also doesn’t want to get involved with the investigation. As a successful psychologist, she’s happy to assist the county fire department as a counselor. She has no idea that her decision to be a Good Samaritan has brought her to the attention of the last person she wants knowing her name and address. Firefly is on her tail, and McKayla suspects he may have been from the beginning. Using her extensive knowledge of the human psyche, the good doctor might be able to point authorities to their arsonist. Yet as the city burns, Firefly comes closer. Is he crazy enough to end up on McKayla’s doorstep with fire in hand? She must solve the case before her family becomes his target. “Firefly is a riveting and intriguing novel that is aglow with sparks, suspense and mystique. Cornelson is an accomplished and gifted writer who keeps the reader captivated from the very first page.” —Shirley Erickson, MS, Sixth-Year Certificate in Reading Education

On a secluded hillside in Jamaica lies Firefly, Noël Coward’s peaceful retreat. Here, between sundowners and sunsets, brandies and cigarettes, the seventy-one-year-old Coward whiles away his days – a comforting, frustrating pattern of unwanted breakfasts, reluctant walks, graceless dips in the pool – in the company of his manservant Patrice. Both of them dream of a London that is long-gone or imagined: Noël’s peopled with glamorous friends – Redgrave, Olivier, O’Toole – and Patrice’s a picture-postcard vision of elegance and opportunity. Set over a series of summer days in the early 1970s, Firefly flits through Coward’s dreams and memories, his successes and regrets, against a sultry, seductive backdrop of blue skies and glistening water. 'A delightful read' Ian McKellen

Firefly is a dream-like evocation of pre-war Cuba, replete with hurricanes, mystical cults and slave-markets. The story is the coming-of-age of a precocious and exuberant boy with an oversized head and underdeveloped sense of direction, who views the world as a threatening conspiracy. Told in breathless and lyrical prose, the novel is a loving rendition of a long-lost home, a meditation on exile, and an allegory of Cuba’s isolation in the world. From the Trade Paperback edition.
