The Report

The Report - Jessica Francis Kane An fictionalised examination of terrible real life events, as people entering a World War II underground air raid shelter stumble and fall, leading to a deadly crush that kills 173 people. The book looks at the causes of the accident and subsequent inquiry into it from the point of view of the survivors and the magistrate assigned to produce 'the report' of the title.... The book is both thought provoking and tinged with sadness..and prompts us to ask ourselves how we might behave in such circumstances..
