And here's what they're saying about the book!
"Ryman hits one out of the park…. In Mayday! Firefighter Down you will see life though a firefighters eyes, but with a new twist. From the first dispatch, to the jaw dropping ending (or is it), Ryman takes you on a thrilling journey as a Truck Officer in a busy fire station, plagued by an arsonist. Mayday! Firefighter Down is a compelling read; once you start you won’t want to put it down!"
Fred Bales, CFPS, CFI
“Chief Gary Ryman’s latest book, Mayday! Firefighter Down is an incredible read. The Chief has blended…all of the elements of a great American novel into this one including; Mystery, Murder, Greed, A Sexy Love Story and Great Fire Fighting Action. Once I started this book, it was difficult putting it down. Gary has captured the essence of what a firefighter does in a twenty-four hour shift, better than just about any other description. The reality is non-fire service folks will be able to understand what we do, without losing the interest of the Firehouse Jake’s and Firehouse Jane's that take this amazing journey in Mayday! Firefighter Down…. This books should be required reading for all aspiring and new fire fighters”.
Chief Dennis Rubin
"Mayday! Firefighter Down is a great read in the genre of Dennis Smith’s Steely Blue and shouldn’t be missed. Ryman kept the firefighter in me interested and the writer in me waiting to see what happens next."
