Andy McPhee admits the idea for his latest book actually came while watching the Netflix series, “The Crown.”

In season one, episode four, titled “An Act of God,” the borough of Donora is referenced as a dense fog cripples London. Of course, the reference is made due to the Donora Smog of 1948 that killed 21 people and caused respiratory problems for 6,000 of the borough’s 14,000 residents.
