Best collection of fire fighting short stories ever!
Publisher: Black Horse Publishing; 1 edition (July 29, 2013)
About the Author: I was born in 1935 and I grew up in Queens, New York. I started writing at the age of 75 hoping to raise money to send my grandchildren to better schools. In the past three years I’ve written 12 books and 6 short stories. Right now I’m working on The Starlight Club 5. After that I’m considering writing a sequel to the Lone Jack Kid which is a finalist in the 2013 Readers Favorite book contest. The Starlight Club won the silver in the 2012 eLit TRUE CRIME category, and is a finalist in the Readers Favorite 2013 book contest. My short story FIRE: Box 598 is also a finalist in the Readers Favorite short story category.

This book is a collection of five short stories written by Joe Corso, a retired fire fighter from notes he compiled whilst in service.
Whether you want a glimpse into the true life of a fire fighter, or are just looking for a fantastic collection of stories, this is definitely the book for you!
The author has an amazing ability to bring his stories to life, his vivid descriptions of the locations, situations and emotions felt has you sitting on the edge of your seat, itching to turn the page to find the outcome and yet not wanting the story to end.
Each story is completely different, but all contain the crew of Engine 24 of the FDNY to whom the book is dedicated.
This is a compelling collection of short stories. I finished them feeling that I had been allowed a privileged insight not only into the very real dangerous world of a fire fighter, but also, that I had been able to feel the sense of the comradeship, dedication, duty and loyalty to fellow workers they share.
I hope the author continues to write more FIRE stories for his number one fan!
