After the Fire

This is a gripping story about religious extremism and personal courage. It switches between 'Before' and 'After', alternating first person recollections (and erasures) with third person descriptions; as Moonbeam tries to sort out the series of events leading up to and following on from the fire. The story's idea came from the Waco Siege of 1993, but the book is not a re-telling of that dreadful event. The characters of the FBI investigator and the psychiatrist play off each other well and make for a book that makes one want to keep turning the pages right up to, and after the end.
