The Tower is a novel by Richard Martin Stern. It is one of the two books drawn upon for the screenplay Stirling Silliphant wrote for the movie The Towering Inferno , the other being the novel The Glass Inferno by Thomas N. Scortia and Frank M. The story unfolds on the day of the grand opening of the brand-new "World Tower Building" skyscraper in Lower Manhattan , New York City , situated near the World Trade Center Towers in a plaza of its own, a building whose height Stern specifies as 1, feet covering a total of stories, making the building feet taller with 15 more stories than the World Trade Center's North Tower. These changes, as it proves, call for lower-quality material, simplified circuitry, or both; this would reduce costs for the electrical subcontractor, Paul Simmons, son-in-law of Bert McGraw, the general contractor, while eliminating the electrical-safety elements in the wiring of the building and rendering it sub-standard. The various characters start to track things down, involving the electrical engineer's office and the Fire Department, represented by Assistant Fire Commissioner Timothy O'Reilly Brown.
