As a journalist, Leigh Sales often encounters people experiencing the worst moments of their lives in the full glare of the media. But one particular string of bad news stories - and a terrifying brush with her own mortality - sent her looking for answers about how vulnerable each of us is to a life-changing event. What are our chances of actually being struck by one? What do we fear most and why? And when the worst does happen, what comes next.

An intriguing concept as Leigh, a renowned journalist, explores these questions, interviewing people suddenly thrust into the national spotlight by events such as the Lindt Cafe siege, Port Arthur massacre, Thredbo landslide along with psychologists, police investigators, priests and coroners. She also honestly reflects on some of her own actions when interviewing and how she could have done better.
