It’s a testament to the author’s skill that the narrative remains a seamless whole, even as it unfolds in fractured parts. A moving parable about the wounding effects of human tragedy and the collateral damage of the search for moral truth.
-Kirkus

Synopsis

Reporter Juni Bruder searches for answers after 115 people die in a fire that destroys Orlando’s most iconic landmark. Told through an inspired mix of puzzle pieces—interviews, e-mails, obituaries—and filled with gallows humor, THE ARSONIST’S LAST WORDS is a sly take on life, loss and the slippery nature of truth.
