A late season storm starts a disaster in motion. Where human error left the door open for a catastrophe, was it truly just bad luck that caused his friends death? Or was it something more? Was it greed that drove the pyres of these fires higher. At least one fireman was dead, many more are injured.

What some of the readers thought of the book…
“Descriptive, good detail of the anguish when so much time and preparation has gone into, would the dreams be only that. Looking for more by author.” And from another reader. “Liked the premise of this story, however needs editing. Lots of editing. Many sentences made no sense at all.”
Unlike some authors, my writing style is a bit different. Some readers will not care for my writing style. Some of the errors reported were intentional. Others just might be a typo. I am happy with the work as it was published, and have no problems sharing all opinions from my readers, good or bad.
