"You Will Feel The Heat From This Gripping Tale From Ground Zero At Katrina." --Mehmet C. Oz, M.D. On the night of August 27, 2005, Dr. Demaree Inglese was one of many New Orleans residents convinced that approaching Hurricane Katrina would pass with minimal impact. The next few days' events would prove how mistaken they all were, and Dr. Inglese, medical director of the New Orleans city jail, would lead his staff through a crisis of deadly proportions. . .. "A Page-Turning True Story. . .Inglese Tells It Brilliantly." --Dennis M. Powers, author of Sentinel of the Seas Massive flooding transformed the sprawling jail complex into an island in the crippled city. Without power or running water, and with food supplies dwindling, the medical team cared for thousands of inmates, staff, and neighborhood residents, while deputies struggled to maintain order. Rioting prisoners, burning buildings, SWAT team rescues, and medical emergencies all conspired to create a storm within a storm. "Brings The Human Scale Of The Tragedy To Life." --Publishers Weekly Vividly re-creating seven days that felt like an eternity to those who survived them, No Ordinary Heroes is a stark, revealing testament to the power of the human spirit in the most harrowing circumstances. "There's No Putting This One Down." --John Gilstrap, author of Six Minutes to Freedom With 16 Pages of Dramatic Photos Updated with a New Epilogue
