Don’t Look Back is a thriller that takes readers into the hearts and minds of an FDNY family who lost their probie son on 9-11 and who set out on a mission in the weeks following the attack to find out what really happened to him and the other 342 firefighters who perished needlessly. Sarah Murphy, a savvy community organizer from the Bronx, teams up with a local investigative reporter as they take on City Hall to unearth the failures at the FDNY that led to her son’s death. They enlist the help of a top City Hall aide who lost her FDNY husband at Ground Zero and who secretly helps bring to light the facts that prove the firefighters did not have to die. In this fast-paced novel by former NY Daily News investigative reporter Joe Calderone, the three risk everything to expose a corruption scandal that put faulty radios in the hands of the FDNY, leading to the worst loss of life in the department’s history. This compelling story, coming at the 20th anniversary of 9-11 and based on true events, takes a different perspective on the response to the 9-11 attack and gives voice to the firefighters who perished, unaware that the buildings were about to come down upon them.
