Overview:

Long Mile Home: Boston Under Attack, the City's Courageous Recovery, and the Epic Hunt for Justice : On April 15, 2013, the world was shocked by unthinkable news: two explosions at the finish line of the Boston Marathon, which was packed with people on the city's most treasured day. In the hours that followed, the gripping story held us breathless. First, the death toll and the life-altering injuries. Next, the identification of the bombers, first by face and then by name. The tense manhunt and the sweeping lockdown that brought Boston to a standstill. The violent death of one suspect and the suspense-filled capture of another. And, finally, the courageous, inspiring recovery of a wounded city.

Long Mile Home is the riveting tale of that tragic, surreal, and ultimately inspiring week. Boston Globe journalists Scott Helman and Jenna Russell tell the full story through the eyes of five principal characters - a police officer, a lost daughter, a determined survivor, a trauma surgeon, and the marathon director - tracing the distinct paths that brought them to a tragic intersection with two murderious young brothers on one momentous day in April. Backed by The Boston Globe's deep, relentless, and widely praised coverage of the dramatic events, Long Mile Home features an unprecedented level of detail and insight, highlighting never-before-told stories, unexpected revelations, and unforgettable moments of heroism and humanity. It's both an absorbing, action-packed narrative and a lasting tribute to the bravery, resourcefulness, and resiliency of the Boston community - a story of the city on its worst day but also at its best.
