Stapleton moves his chronicle of the Boston Fire Department forward by going back to the BFD's past. DC Donald Holden arranges for his mentor, Chief Billy Simpson, to come to lunch and share his recollections of his years on the job at the BFD. Billy talks, and the troops listen, and learn. The first lunch becomes a regular event, and Billy unselfishly shares and reminisces. To prepare for the lunch meetings, Billy reviews the personal journals he kept during his career. Forty years -- it's all there during BFD's heydays and hell days and rebuilding. Stapleton's writing is as sharp and vibrant as ever, his attention to the details and the dangers as meticulous and precise as ever.
