Run right to Barnes and Noble for this one by Edward T. O'Donnell, SHIP ABLAZE, Broadway Books, New York, ISBN 0-7679-0905-4 $25.00- It's a page turner. Great photos including one of the rotten lifejackets, the burning hulk, the sad scene on the beach, the Inquiry and many others.The investigation coverage is mezmerizing and goes into detail of the altered lifejacket order, the personalities who testified, and the unbelievably clumsy attempt at cover up by the owners. This is one you will stay up all night with. O'Donnell teaches American History at Holy Cross in Worcester , Massachusetts- and I may have to go meet this guy!
