Chapter 49 Summary

The FBI has trouble finding Dolarhyde's home until the fire reveals smoke in the distance. They find Reba just as the house rocks with a huge explosion. Crawford grabs Reba from where she has fallen in the drive and asks her where Dolarhyde is. Reba tells them Dolarhyde is inside and that he shot himself before the fire began. Crawford sits with her in a patrol car and allows her to cry.

Chapter 49 Analysis
