Beneath the Flames is a novel based on the author's real-life rescue of two little boys from their burning bedroom. 


"Renz draws on his years of experience as a firefighter to bring a hardscrabble authenticity to his novel. He packs the tale with plenty of action and a lot of heart. His firefighting sequences are detailed and thrilling, placing readers right in front of the flames. His prose is clean and, at times, poetic..." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Gregory Renz’s new novel is a triumph of poignancy, compassion, and restraint. In it, a man’s regret is transformed to triumph." -- Jacquelyn Mitchard, author of the bestselling novel, The Deep End of the Ocean
