    New York: Kensington, (2007.) dj. Hardcover first edition - A true account of just one of the disastrous events following Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans in August 2005, by the Medical Director of the Orleans Parish Criminal Sheriff's Office, one of the largest jails in the country. From the dustjacket: "No Ordinary Heroes recounts the drama that unfolded at the jail between August 26 and September 2, 2005. Faced with a prison compound that administrators had refused to evacuate, Dr. Inglese and his colleagues - deputies, nurses, and doctors - had a monumental disaster on their hands. Massive flooding transformed the sprawling jail complex into an island in the crippled city. Without power or running water, and with food stores dwindling, conditions at the jail deteriorated rapidly as temperatures inside soared in the blistering summer heat. Cut off from help, the medical staff struggled to care for thousands of inmates, staff, and neighborhood residents while deputies struggled to maintain order. Through it all loomed the constant menace of the prison inmates, many of them desperate to survive or possibly escape. Rioting prisoners, burning buildings, SWAT team rescues, and medical emergencies all conspired to create a storm within a storm: a trial weathered by the courage and perseverance of a dedicated few who worked to the breaking point and beyond." Illustrated with an inserted section of 47 color photographs and drawings of the floor plan. Author's note. vii, 327 pp. ISBN: 9780806528311.
