On November 11, 2000, a train caught fire in a mountain tunnel at the Kaprun ski resort in Austria, killing 155 people. The disaster and its aftermath traumatized the nation. This in-depth account by authors Hannes Uhl and Hubertus Godeysen brings the events to life and reveals the astonishing incompetence and corruption that led to the accident and undermined the subsequent trial. 155: The Kaprun Cover-Up serves as a warning to people in every country about threats to public safety and the rule of law.
