Need a pulse-pounding read? Look no further than a crime thriller novel. #countdowntoexcitement


Somewhat of a sequel to FIRE DREAM but stands on its own. Who needs yet another police/lawyer/private eye story?

"Suspense on Fire"   "Great read"

"A page turner from the get go. Yatscoff maintains a level of suspense that is both intense and realistic. The characters in this story are colourful and one can't help but sympathize Gerry's situations and the challenges that confront his humanistic intentions. It's a truly gripping read!" - Amazon reviewer

FIRE DREAM | original

The first firefighter crime book written in Canada by a firefighter -- the real deal.

A fresh angle in the crime/mystery genre. Not another police, lawyer, or PI story.


“Gripping suspense. The tale has lots of twists and a reveal, that I didn’t see coming. This novel offers a fresh perspective into firefighting, arson and revenge.” - Caffeinated Reviewer

​Obsession, a deadly secret, hot romance, murder, revenge, and arson. Twenty years ago, Gerry Ormond, along with his two teenage fraternity buddies committed a horrendous crime, unsolved and paved over by layers of time.  It’s why Gerry fled his hometown.  It was a tragedy for all, a secret to some, buried and forgotten—almost—until now upon a visit to his ailing father.  Now as a decorated fire captain & national hero the secret unravels. Old friends are now enemies as the cold case begins to thaw.


“I like the idea of a mystery told from a firefighter’s perspective. Plus, the way you describe the fire is gripping. Your writing is very well done… I like this book." – Northern Lights Literary

"A rollicking tale of crime & action!" – Christine Hoag author of ‘The Blood Room’ & ‘Law of the Jungle’


The brutal Polar Vortex has grown stronger with every winter, ravaging a major Canadian city that is evacuated until springtime. Fire Captain Jack Sellars and his firefighters are contracted by Vulcan Securities with one mandate: do NOT let the city burn down. With no power or gas, and every citizen gone, what could possibly happen? But the criminal gangs didn’t get the memo and begin looting the city. Captain Jack’s crew are witnesses to murder when drive-bys on the fire station begin. Their sanctuary is the fire station but the weight of the snow begins to bear on the roof. Making it alive to springtime is going to take a miracle.

4.0 out of 5 stars      “A rollicking tale of crime & action!” – Christine Hoag author of ‘The Blood Room’


Got a bully in your neighborhood? A troublesome squatter you can’t evict? When the courts or police can’t, or won’t help, well…good luck. Or you can hire Ritchie and Arlan, ex-cop and ex-con. Their trade is home renovations, but their side job is just what you’re looking for. They're the good kinda bad; angels to some, devils to others. But when they stumble on the real bad -- a dangerous city gang--there's no one to call when they run out of options. It will be a one shot attempt and failure is not an option.
