I'm not sure I can find the right words to describe this book. Awesome, wonderful, exciting ... these don't even begin to describe the contents. If it were possible to give a higher rating, I would do so. I've never read a book about firefighting, but the description drew me to this one. Once I started reading, I didn't want to put it down. Mr. Daniels did a superb job of writing a work of fiction and incorporating the real life details of his volunteer service. You won't find any "fluff" and the descriptions of the scenes and action will allow the reader to visualize everything as it happens. "Fire Chief" is an emotional roller-coaster that will keep you turning the pages. I highly recommend this novel.
