"This gripping biography of Jason Schechterle's battle for life and justice celebrates the resilience of the human spirit while condemning corporate greed... This enthralling biography injects the intimacy of fiction into a true story of human endurance. Readers are continuously reminded that Jason Schechterle is flesh, bones, and blood, not a fictional character, and they are invited to experience his terror, frustration, and ultimate triumph."
--Publishers Weekly

"Sad, exciting, life-changing and emotional, Burning Shield: The Jason Schechterle Story is an amazing story of one man's triumph over tragedy with the support of an entire community."
--Jack Ballentine, former homicide detective and author of Murder for Hire

"A maimed cop fights to regain his life in this inspiring true story... [Landon J.] Napoleon, the author of several crime novels, is skilled at painting a scene in slangy strokes while balancing plotlines... this true story reads like a novel."
--Kirkus Reviews

"Landon J. Napoleon displays a flair for detail in this fast-moving book... The third-person account is an inspiring read, even for those with a passing familiarity with the story from the news."
--The Arizona Republic
