Joseph Lani grew up on the south shore of Staten Island (NY), where a happy childhood was shattered by a tragedy that tears his family apart forever.
After trying to start a new life in Florida, Lani returned to New York and soon found himself a member of New York's Finest. Then his life and the lives of so many others were changed forever on September 11, 2001.
After the initial horrors ended, Lani was assigned to the command center at the Fresh Kills Landfill, whose mission was to sift through the debris of the entire World Trade Center. Under the stress of the job, Lani suffers a massive heart attack and subsequent near death experience. He miraculously recovers to a new life fully enveloped in the spirit world.
In this fast-paced memoir in which we get to run with the bulls, Joseph Lani recounts his many harrowing and humorous experiences on the job. Lani entertains his readers with an insider's account of a very real world most of us only think we know from television.
