Synopsis:

In the South Bronx during the 1960s and 70s, unscrupulous landlords andtheir torch-men set in motion a murderous wave of arson-for-profit,driving hundreds of thousands of people from their homes and injuring,maiming, and killing thousands more-including firefighters. Yet NewYork's mayor consistently refuses to give the fire department themanpower it needs to investigate the arson, and thousands of suspiciousfires go uninvestigated.Jackie Mulligan and his brother firefighters stand up to the heartless evilof the slumlords by demanding that the mayor take action. But when themayor refuses, Mulligan and his men take a stand against the arsonists,putting their jobs-and their lives-on the line.For Mulligan, the fight has become personal. And there will be only onewinner." John Finucane has written a riveting and fast moving novel Not onlydoes he nail the drama in a way only an experienced firefighter can, heliterally puts the reader inside the fire scene Reading John Finucane'scomprehensive description brought back memories of my admiration forfirefighters everywhere." -Charles J.
