by Scott James
Trial by Fire tells a story of a devastating fire at a nightclub in Rhode Island that killed 100 people and injured hundreds. It took fifteen years to find out why this happened and who was responsible. Bestselling author and three-time Emmy Award-winning journalist Scott James, who was also a San Francisco Writers Workshop regular earlier in his career, investigates all the central figures. Drawing on firsthand accounts, interviews with many involved, and court documents, James explores the rush to judgment about what happened that left the victims and their families, whose stories he also tells, desperate for justice.
