In the tradition of 102 Minutes and Columbine, the definitive book on the Boston Marathon bombing and subsequent manhunt for the Tsarnaev brothers, written by reporters from The Boston Globe and published to coincide with the first anniversary of the tragedy Long Mile Home will tell the gripping story of the tragic, surreal, and ultimately inspiring week of April 15, 2013: the preparations of the bombers; the glory of the race; the extraordinary emergency response to the explosions; the massive deployment of city, state, and federal law enforcement personnel; and the nation's and the world's emotional and humanitarian response before, during, and after the apprehension of the suspects. The authors, both journalists at The Boston Globe, are backed by that paper's deep, relentless, and widely praised coverage of the event. Through the eyes of seven principal characters including the bombers, the wounded, a victim, a cop, and a doctor, Helman and Russell will trace the distinct paths that brought them together. With an unprecedented level of detail and insight, the book will offer revelations, insights, and powerful stories of heroism and humanity. Long Mile Home will also highlight the bravery, resourcefulness, and resiliency of the Boston community. It will portray the city on its worst day but also at its best.

Professional reviews

"Written by two Boston Globe reporters, this audiobook is the first comprehensive account of the Boston Marathon bombing of April 15, 2013, the chaotic search for the Tsarnaev brothers, and the role that both city officials and ordinary citizens played in the story. Narrator Jim Frangione treats the story with the respect it deserves, and as the authors no doubt intended. ItÕs journalistic reporting at its finest, and the authors maintain a breathless pace throughout. FrangioneÕs deep, smooth voice is at once authoritative and reassuring, and his pacing and diction are excellent. However, his range is limited, which contributes to some lackluster passages. He does perk up in tune with the action, and, overall, the book is both timely and interesting. R.I.G. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine"
