Read full description of the books The Holiday Party:All cops go to Heaven. Cop killers, they go to that other place." So says the narrator of The Holiday Party, a police officer who has seen his best friend killed in the line of duty. Six years later...September 11, 2001. Struggling with alcoholism and on the brink of suicide, our hero finds himself buried beneath one hundred stories of concrete and steel. Now, in the midst of unspeakable tragedy, he fights to survive, even as he discovers that his greatest challenge is to escape the wreckage of his past and find hope for a better future. As his situation grows increasingly desperate, a troubled hero learns those timeless lessons his own father never had the opportunity to teach him: love, forgiveness, and honor. But can he learn the final lesson - that though we cannot change our pasts, we can decide what type of person we want to be today. A touching reminder of the sacrifices police and their families make, this heartwarming and inspirational book is for anyone that has been through a difficult time, or has regrets, or had faith and lost it. In other words, The Holiday Party is a book for all of us, and one that will stay with you long after you put it down.

Read information about the authorHi there! I’m Brian Perry and in addition to being an avid reader, I’m also an author.
My newest book is The Holiday Party, a work of inspirational fiction which examines the relationship between a father and his son. Moving back and forth between the tragedy of 9/11 and a magical Christmas Party, the book follows a heroic but troubled cop whose burial in the rubble of the World Trade Center causes him to reexamine the wreckage of his past and his hopes for the future.

My first book, From Piggybank to Portfolio: A Financial Roadmap for New Investors, provided simple, easy to follow personal finance and investment guidelines designed to help readers get started on the road to financial security, and makes an ideal gift for high school and college students, as well as twenty-somethings just starting out in the workplace.
Since this is a site for readers, here is some of what I like to read. In non-fiction, I read a lot of economics and finance, as well as Western European history. In fiction, I like spy thrillers and other page turners from authors such as John Grisham, Vince Flynn, Lee Child, and Alex Berenson. Given my interest in history, I also enjoy historical novels from writers such as John Jakes, Ken Follet, and James Michener. And finally, I like, and was influenced in writing The Holiday Party by, inspirational and touching books by authors such as Mitch Albom and Garth Stein.
When I’m not reading or writing, I’ve found the time to visit more than three dozen countries and all fifty states, jumped out of planes, mountain climbed near Mt. Everest, surfed in Bali, scuba dived in Belize, ridden a camel around the pyramids, taken flying lessons, completed an Ironman triathlon, run the New York City marathon, attended five different universities, and dressed up as Santa to deliver presents to a local children's hospital.
However my proudest accomplishments are: 1) overcoming the childhood murder of my father, a police officer killed in the line of duty three days before Christmas and 2) having the amazing good fortune to have the love and support of my wife, son, and extended family and friends.
