Summary
In London, 1943, tube stations across the city have been converted into bomb shelters, where night after night, immigrants and East Enders alike sleep on the tracks and wait. But on March 3, as the crowd hurries down the staircase, something goes wrong, and one hundred and seventy-three adults and children lose their lives in a deadly crush. Young magistrate, Laurence Dunne, undertakes an enquiry and finds the truth at the centre of the event to be elusive, even damaging. As Dunne struggles to complete his task without causing hurt, he makes some surprising choices. Several decades later, an enocunter with a young documentary filmmaker forces him to revisit his decisions.--From book jacket

It is an early spring evening in 1943 when the air-raid sirens wail out over the East End of London. From every corner of Bethnal Green, people emerge from pubs, cinemas and houses, and set off for the shelter of the tube station. But at the entrance steps, something goes badly wrong, the crowd panics, and 173 people are crushed to death.When an enquiry is called for, it falls to the local magistrate, Laurence Dunne, to find out what happened during those few, fatally confused, minutes. But as Dunne gathers testimony from the guilt-stricken warden of the shelter, the priest struggling to bring comfort to his congregation, and the grieving mother who has lost her youngest daughter, the picture grows ever murkier. The more questions Dunne asks, the more difficult it becomes to disentangle truth from rumour - and to decide just how much truth the damaged community can actually bear. It is only decades later, when the case is re-opened by one of the children who survived, that the facts can finally be brought to light..
