Product Description

About the Author

I grew up in Queens, New York and I started writing at the age of 75 hoping to raise money to send my grandchildren to better schools. I've written 12 books and 6 short stories. Right now I'm working on The Starlight Club 5 and then I'll write 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 as well as my short story FIRE: Box 598 which is also a finalist in the Readers Favorite short story category.

Format: Kindle Edition
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!

This is a great book by Joe Corso, a retired Firefighter.

I'm a fan of real life stories so this book is right up my alley. I actually hadn't read any other book about fire fighters before but I enjoyed it. Joe does a great writing about each accident. I did enjoy the read. There is something in me that really likes to read about big events and inspirational stories. This book got both!

I received a review copy for my honest opinion of the book.

Joe Corso has put together some memorable experiences from his long career on the FDNY and it is an easy read, very entertaining with enough suspense to keep you hooked to the last page.

great collection of stories from a Firefighter in Manhattan in the 60's and 70's. My only complaint is its a slim book. The author is a talented storyteller with exciting stories to relate. If you are interested in realistic firefighting stories along with photos from these fires you will enjoy. I look forward to more from Joe Corso.
HASH(0x94ddd014) out of 5 stars Quick and right to the facts 15 Sept. 2014
By Joe Batista - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Interesting read but the author moves very quickly and doesn't give details or full settings. Can be hard to follow and understand. Also seems to assume reader knows a lot about firefighting and does not describe many technical terms.

But stories are unique and worth a read.
