James A. Dillon, a former New York City fireman who retired as a lieutenant after a thirty-year career and now pursues his passion for golf, has completed his book “Missing”: a gripping tale of agonizing loss and the wrenching questions surrounding his family’s abrupt disappearance.

Nolan Daly believes he has the dream life. He’s got a beautiful wife, two adorable children, and the job he always wanted. As a firefighter in the FDNY, on the list for promotion to lieutenant, he feels the sky’s the limit. Then 9/11 happens. Daly loses seven brothers from his Brooklyn firehouse and well over one hundred friends out of the 343 firefighters killed that horrible day. While still reeling from that tragedy, he wakes up in a hospital with a pair of detectives asking him what he did to his family.

When it becomes apparent he didn’t commit triple homicide, those around him figure life goes on, right? But not for Daly. He still desperately wants his kids back. Where are Emma and Mark? Are they safe? Happy? How are they getting along without Daddy? As they were toddlers when they disappeared, will they remember him if he ever finds them?

While his marriage was far from perfect, could his wife really have masterminded this kidnapping? Is it a good idea to become romantically involved with the lead detective on the case? With all this swirling in his mind, Daly must keep to his normal routine. The question is, what is normal these days? Nolan struggles on a daily basis to present a facade of just another guy in the firehouse while his world is crashing around him. The more time passes from the day of their disappearance, the more others feel he should move on. But that only steels his determination to never give up.

Follow Nolan Daly as he walks the tightrope of living his life and desperately searching for his missing children.

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, James A. Dillon’s book is a suspenseful story of determination in the face of unfathomable grief.
