Description

Veteran journalists Casey
Sherman and Dave Wedge have written the definitive inside look at the Boston
Marathon bombing with a unique, Boston-based account of the events that
riveted the world. From the Tsarnaev brothers' years leading up to the act of
terror to the bomb scene itself (which both authors witnessed firsthand within
minutes of the blast), from the terrifying police shootout with the suspects to
the ultimate capture of the younger brother, Boston Strong: A City's Triumph over Tragedy reports all the
facts—and so much more.

Based on months of
intensive interviews, this is the first book to tell the entire story through
the eyes of those who experienced it. From the cop first on the scene to the
detectives assigned to the manhunt, the authors provide a behind-the-scenes
look at the investigation. More than a true-crime book, Boston Strong also tells the tragic but ultimately life-affirming
story of the victims and their recoveries and gives voice to those who lost
loved ones. With their extensive reporting, writing experience, and deep ties
to the Boston area, Sherman and Wedge create the perfect match of story, place,
and authors.

If you're only going to
read one book on this tragic but uplifting story, this is it.
