Racy and engaging from the get-go, Sabrina Cohen-Hatton compels her readers to speed through these pages at the rate of a responding fire truck. With expert deftness she builds the intensity from surviving as a homeless Welsh teenager to the newly appointed Chief Officer of West Sussex Fire and Rescue. The Heat of the Moment continues to increase in momentum as Cohen-Hatton draws us closer into the centre of incident command to stand with her as she faces the most difficult and traumatic life-and-death incident decision making. From here, she expertly manoeuvres readers into a position that creates a sense of imperative and immediacy; fulfilling her stated purpose to show the‘human side of firefighting’.
