Editorial Reviews

Eddie Jones
“This chilling account of the hours between 8 AM Tuesday, Sept 11, 2001, and 10 AM leaves you wondering how anyone escaped Tower One. A first hand account: raw and moving.” – author of The Curse of Captain LaFoote and Bahama Breeze
Loree Lough
“In this powerful telling of one man’s 9/11 story, readers will feel as if they were there, running breathless and sweaty alongside him as he and his heroic comrades did what most of us mere mortals would find too terrifying to do. This one belongs on your bookshelf!”

Let me first start by saying that I have known Vinny all my life, and have always looked up to him as an older brother! With that being said, I would have not wanted to be with anybody else but Vin on that horrific day. If there is anybody who would stay calm in the face of these overwhelming odds it is Vinny. After reading his account and his actions I question if I could have been as brave. I'm not sure. I remember thinking about Vinny that day and praying that he got out. I knew he would! This story brought me to tears, but also gave me hope. I hope it does the same for you!!!

A very genuine and emotional story of the 9/11 tragedy. This short book recounts interconnecting stories of 9/11 very well, but is told mostly from the perspective of one Port Authority worker. The raw feelings expressed by this man who led co-workers to safety makes the event seem all too vivid some ten years later.
