It's amazing how much Michale Koryta teaches you as he's raising your blood pressure. I learned a lot I didn't know about fires and fire fighting in this novel. In The Ridge, I leaned about big cat rescue shelters and in Last Words, I leaned about caves and cave rescue (and claustrophobia ).I have about 100 pages to go. Oh my God. How does he keep that suspense and tension so tennis-racket-strung tight? Wow is right. My anxiety is through the roof.
