I was a worker on the 74th floor of the South Tower when the second plane hit.
September 11, 2001 was supposed to be John Alvarez’s day off. Instead he was called into work. He was one of thousands who found themselves busy working just like any other morning. Then the first plane struck the North Tower. Minutes later the second plane hit the South Tower, only a few floors above from where John and his colleagues stood watching the chaos unfolding across the way. Quickly panic and fear filled the air. Then the towers collapsed and John’s story begins.
But John also has a secret. Why did his landlady warn him not to go to work the morning of the attack? Is there more to the surprise attack on America than John or anybody else knows? Was it orchestrated by bin Laden and Al Qaeda or by a larger organization nobody would ever suspect?
Against his parents will, John enlists in the Army and is deployed to Afghanistan where flashback’s of 9-11 and IEDs plague John’s conscience. John is on a mission to find the truth behind the terrorist attack and will do anything to discover it.
