The Last Kind Words
Tom Piccirilli
Firestarter - Stephen King Andy McGee, a young student, willingly takes part in a medical experiment to raise a little cash. The experiment, sponsored by a shady government organisation called "The Shop" leaves him (and his future wife) with telepathic/telekinetic powers.

Many years later and Andy is on the run from The Shop with his daughter who has been born with pyrokinetic abilities.

The inevitable happens and they are captured but can they escape and can they remain free?...

It's an enjoyable read, especially the development in Charlie and her attitude to her powers and the manipulation from people from The Shop, especially Rainbird a character who could have been really interesting but comes across a bit flat.
