Overview

On Sept. 12, 2002, the New York papers reported a murder-suicide in a Times Square office. A former FBI agent, fifty-six years old, Director of Security for Blue Cross of New York, shot a young woman and another man, then took his own life. Both the killer and the young woman had been in the World Trade Center a year and a day earlier. There was no information about their relationship, if any, or his motive, if any.
This novel imagines those characters and the events that changed their lives.

Disclaimer: I received an e-copy in exchange for an honest review. Robert is an ex-FBI agent who's now the VP of Security for a foreign market firm in NYC. On September 11, 2001, he finds himself inside one of the Twin Towers as they are attacked, and he helps guide people down the stairs to safety. He's hailed as a hero, even has his picture shown all of the media, but this is just the start of a major turn of events for him. All Robert wants to do is move past that day, but nobody will let him. Not even himself, considering he's now found himself infatuated with a woman he helped that day. She's half his age, has two kids, and he's married, for Christ's sake, but that doesn't stop the growing bond between them. How will all these new feelings affect Robert, especially when, whether he wants to admit it or not, he's still dealing with the stress of the attacks? I must say, this story provides an insightful perspective on September 11th, as you get to see it through the eyes of someone who was not only there, but who also had to deal with the constant praise and pats on the back, even though so many others died around him. Not to mention, it's the start of what is probably a mid-life crisis; probably not such a great time to have it. The characters are interesting, as is the story, and you can definitely tell when Robert's starting to crack under everything going on. An interesting read, and I look forward to other works by this author. 4 stars
