From the author of One Shot-One Kill and Homicide! comes this harrowing look at life on the front lines of the Miami Beach firefighting unit, as the men and women of the busiest fire department in the country operate in a world of screaming sirens and desperate cries for help.

With long days and restless nights spent in blinding, noxious smoke, torturous heat, and buildings that can implode at any moment, the reality of being a firefighter is working one of the most dangerous jobs in America.

Witness the destructive force that suddenly transforms a store front deli into a blazing trap of gas and flames, live in the terror of an inside rescue of a hotel spitting flaming debris just moments before it collapses, and follow the fire detectives as they walk the charred and twisted trail of a serial arsonist in this revealing look at what it truly means to be a firefighter.

Last American Heroes takes readers to the front lines of the urban fire zones in Miami Beach to experience one month of the panic and the pride, the raw strength and courage, and the camaraderie and grief of some of today’s true American heroes.
