F. P. Lione is actually two people --- a married couple by the name of Frank and Pam Lione. They are both Italian-American and the offspring of NYPD detectives. Frank is a veteran of the NYPD who survived the World Trade Center rescue efforts. Both Frank and Pam lost friends and colleagues in the terrible destruction of September 11, 2001. The story they tell in CLEAR BLUE SKY rings with the authenticity that only someone who has been there can convey.
