Langewiesche has had more access to Ground Zero than any other journalist. Here he offers a fascinating look at what happened to the World Trade Center in the days and months following the 9/11 attacks. With his strong baritone voice, Richard M. Davidson captures the tension, the difficulties, and the drama of what unfolded. He also uses vocal characterization when quoting various principals involved. The author gives an inside look at New York City politics and the tensions between firefighters, police, and other "tribes" in the city, as well those that emerged in the days and weeks following this tragedy. The precise damage to the WTC is presented, as well as the Herculean efforts to safely remove the debris. M.L.C. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 04]
