Summary:
"The story of the fire, its causes, and its legal and human aftermath is one of lives put at risk by petty economic decisions?by a band, club owners, promoters, building inspectors, and product manufacturers. Any one of those decisions, made differently, might have averted the tragedy. Together, however, they reached a fatal critical mass."--Publisher's website.
