Product description

Review

"Barylick has created a modern cautionary tale that will take your breath away."-- "Publishers Weekly" (6/4/2012 12:00:00 AM)

"In Killer Show, John Barylick sifts an abundance of clear, convincing, and frightening evidence in what is perhaps the definitive account of the Station nightclub fire. And he demonstrates that the greatest tragedy here was that it didn't need to happen."-- "Boston Globe" (1/1/2012 12:00:00 AM)

"The fascinating book probes into every conceivable detail leading up to, during and after the fire, creating a convincing case for culpability by the rockers, their manager, the local official and the Derdarian brothers, who owned The Station and did everything they could to cut operating expenses and maximize box office, including lying to booking agents about the club's capacity."-- "Hartford Courant" (1/1/2012 12:00:00 AM)

"Station fire survivor Victoria Potvin Eagan says, "I kind of thought I knew everything there was to know" about the fire and the people who were in it. As the founder of the Station Family Fund and head of the Station Memorial Foundation, she fields a lot of questions about that night, and so she says, "I've made it my mission to know everything there is about everyone." Barylick's book, however, "even surprised me--there were definitely some facts I wasn't aware of." Eagan says four or five personal stories of survivors have been published so far, but that Barylick's book is "very detailed ... extremely informative. And written without being sensationalized, which is what I appreciated." She says she's given countless interviews all over the world, and is always asked what really happened. "Next time I'm asked that question, I'm just referring them to that book."-- "Providence Journal" (1/1/2012 12:00:00 AM)
