The Book

The truth about Grenfell is not being told.

The biggest tower block fire in UK history was completely preventable. The government had been warned for years that they had to make urgent changes to prevent a disaster. Their response? ‘Show me the bodies.'

Award-winning journalist Peter Apps tells the full story of the Grenfell Tower fire for the first time, using exclusive information and survivor testimony not only to bring the unfolding tragedy to life, but to show exactly where it went wrong, and to make sure it never happens again.
