Channel 4 Books / Macmillan, London - first edition, 1999. hardcover, 9 1/2" x 6 1/4", with dust jacket. AS NEW book in AS NEW unclipped dust jacket. Red cloth-bound boards with silver type to spine, 9 full-colour photographs, glossary & abbreviations, list of interviewees, index. This is not a book about destructive fires, rather it's about the work the investigators do as they piece together the cause of the ignition, the mechanism by which the fire spread, smoke flow, and even the behaviour of the building's occupants. Here are the first-hand testimonies of those people whose lives have been scarred by their encounters with fires. It is also the story of fire-safety engineers and forensic fire scientists who spend their lives scouring gutted buildings in search of the data that allows them to predict how fires of the future will behave. Examples from both sides of the Atlantic. Black felt-pen mark to bottom edge of book.
