TRIAL BY FIRE reopens the case of The Station nightclub fire that killed 100 when the rock band Great White ignited fireworks inside a small roadside club in tiny Rhode Island. It’s one of the deadliest fires in American history, and it became of the nation’s deadliest criminal cases. But there were never any trials.

Author Scott James spent ten years investigating what happened, and discovered there was much more to the disaster than what the public had been led to believe.

Here’s what’s been said about TRIAL BY FIRE so far…

In a starred review, Publishers Weekly called it “Gripping… essential reading for true crime fans.”

And New York Times bestselling author Raj Patel said, quote, “This is journalism as it is meant to be. Scott James does for Rhode Island what Truman Capote did for Kansas.”

Scott James is a veteran journalist and the author of Trial by Fire. Since 2009 Scott’s reporting has appeared in The New York Times, and he is the recipient of three Emmy Awards for his work in television news. He’s also the author of two bestselling novels, SoMa and The Sower.

Frances Dinkelspiel is an award-winning veteran journalist, co-founder of the news organization Berkeleyside and author of two books, Towers of Gold and the New York Times bestseller Tangled Vines.
