From Behind the Mask by Pam Warren with Gareth Owen

Hardback with Dust Jacket over Black boards with Silver titling to Spine
Illustrated by way of: Colour Photographs;

From the cover: She was not expected to survive. She became the lady in the mask. In October 1999, Pam Warrens life was turned on its head when she sustained horrific injuries in the Paddington rail crash. The casualties numbered thirty-one dead and over five hundred injured. Pam underwent scores of operations to rebuild her burnt body, and had to wear a plastic mask over her face for twenty-three hours a day over an eighteen-month period. Unwittingly, she became the public face of the disaster.

Over a decade on from that terrible event, From Behind the Mask charts the true inside story of Pams journey from victim to survivor and campaigner. Following the crash she became the UKs leading spokesperson for improving rail safety, battling with rail management executives and the government and winning. She was branded a troublemaker, but Pam and fellow members of the Paddington Survivors Group helped bring about great improvements on our railways. For years Pam remained focused on that campaign. Now, for the first time, she can tell us all what really happened. It is an inspirational story of determination and courage.
