From Library Journal:

Chandler chronicles the human story beyond the headlines of the crash of Delta Flight 191. The Lockheed Tristar crashed in Dallas in 1985, the worst year in history for airline tragedies. The anatomy of the disaster is revealed through discussions of wind shear, the cockpit and ground voice record, the crash itself, and the hospital triage. The grisly details of body identification, legal responsibilities and financial settlements, and equally painful matters all are covered. The book delves further into the realities of after-crash life, death, and suffering than others have. Well-researched by a skilled journalist, Fire & Rain is recommended. William A. McIntyre, New Hampshire Vocational-Technical Coll. Lib., Nashua
