Publisher's Summary

On 7 February 2009, Roger Wood was the police officer in charge of Kinglake, at the epicentre of the worst ever bushfire disaster in Australia's history, Black Saturday.

As the firestorm engulfed the community, he risked his life again and again to try to save people. When he phoned home to warn his wife what was coming, she screamed that the fire had already hit their property. Then the line went dead.

This is a book about the monster - and the fear, grief, desolation and heroism of those who confronted it.

Brilliant

This book really gives an incite to the way our emergency service personal reacted and responded to the events of Black Saturday, especially in the Kinglake area. They were just as blinded and unaware of the location of the fire. No one knew. Worth the time to read.
