Gripping, heart-stopping and profoundly reassuring. Thank heavens for such courage. * Sue Black, author of All That Remains *
A vivid reminder of the horrors that firefighters face daily - and the debt of gratitude society owes them . . . This book challenges assumptions about who firefighters are, and about what women can do. * The Guardian *

An immersive insight into a job which few of us could do, by a woman whose award-winning research into decision-making in the emergency services has transformed policy at a global level. * Stylist *
