"All cops go to Heaven. Cop killers, they go to that other place." So says the narrator of The Holiday Party, a police officer who has seen his best friend killed in the line of duty.
Six years later...September 11, 2001. Struggling with alcoholism and on the brink of suicide, our hero finds himself buried beneath one hundred stories of concrete and steel. Now, in the midst of unspeakable tragedy, he fights to survive, even as he discovers that his greatest challenge is to escape the wreckage of his past and find hope for a better future.

But can he learn the final lesson - that though we cannot change our pasts, we can decide what type of person we want to be today.
