Abstract:

The true story of a heroic firefighter's nine-year inquiry leading to the discovery of arson and a political conspiracy in the 1944 Hartford Circus Fire, an American tragedy equal in scope to the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing. This nonfiction narrative also reveals the true identity of Little Miss Fifteen Sixty Five, the beautiful eight-year-old girl who lost her life in the blaze, and who remained unknown and unclaimed for fifty years--until Rick Davey heard her spirit voice calling him to a mission of the heart, a mission he could not refuse.
