Heat is a gripping story about firefighters and everyday heroes who our our friends, neighbors and family. It is the true-life story of one firefighter's life and death journey. Writer Jon Wells pieces together a compelling narrative about life inside and outside of flames, of dangers apparent and camouflaged and how one's man's family comes to terms with it. This story was so powerful we designed the front page to be a poster front. Our instincts were bang on - our readers asked for more and we later published the narrative as a full-length book.
