New Book Recounts Adventures of Firefighters Trapped in Central American Uprising!
Article Editor: Christopher Laird Simmons
LOS ANGELES, Calif. - October 5, 2004 /Send2Press Newswire/ -- Firebomber Publications
(www.firebomberpublications.com) announced an exciting new novel, FIRESTORM, by author
Michael Archer today. In it, members of the privately-owned firefighting company
Firebombers Incorporated are besieged by guerillas who they have to hold at bay until
Joseph Talon, billionaire entrepreneur and founder of the high-tech firefighting
company "Firebombers Incorporated" takes a desperate gamble to stave off bankruptcy by
leading the organization down to the Central American republic of San Pietro. However,
his hopes of winning a long-term firefighting contract from the fledgling government
are sidetracked by a revolt incited by druglords intent on wresting control of the
country from the legitimate government. When a group of his firefighters is trapped
deep in the jungle, cut off from help, and surrounded by guerillas, Joe is forced to
make an agonizing choice: Hope that he can ransom his people from the druglords ... or
try to rescue them in the face of an overwhelmingly powerful enemy force.
Firebombers Incorporated was founded by a diverse and dedicated group of firefighters,
business leaders, engineers, and ex-military personnel. It is the most advanced
organization of its kind anywhere in the world. By melding together proven firefighting
techniques with the latest in electronics, computers, and space-age materials, an
elite, hard-hitting, highly mobile force is created.
The air wing of Firebombers Incorporated includes scores of C-130 transport aircraft
and dozens of modified CL-415 'Super Scooper' air-tankers that use leading-edge
electronics and computers to perform pinpoint air strikes, day or night. Ground forces
include bulldozers, air-landable fire engines constructed using lightweight composite
materials in place of steel, and hundreds of smokejumpers, all of which provides a
massive response to large wildfires.
FIRESTORM is dedicated to those who have served in the U.S. military and, as such, has
a strong military flavor to the action. Many of the members of Firebombers Incorporated
are veterans or reservists representing all branches of the U.S. armed forces, which
allows them to avail themselves well in both wildland firefighting and, as the story
progresses, military operations.
"In FIRESTORM, Mr. Archer offers a story of excitement and high drama in the
back cover copy, and what the author delivers exceeds expectations. The concept
is interesting and intriguing. Both internal and external conflicts are
skillfully interwoven, creating a seamless story with a powerful impact. Pacing
throughout the book is quick, with building tension driving the plot to a
satisfying ending." -- Writer's Digest
