Summary: Told through the eyes of five principal characters: a police officer, a lost daughter, a determined survivor, a trauma surgeon, and the marathon director, this book is the story of 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. The Boston Marathon bombing on April 15, 2013 was surrounded by events tragic, surreal, and ultimately inspiring. The book chronicles preparations of the bombers; the glory of the race itself; the extraordinary emergency response to the explosions; the massive deployment of city, state, and federal law enforcement personnel; the nation's and the world's emotional and humanitarian response before, during, and after the apprehension of the suspects, and finally, the courageous, inspiring recovery of a wounded city.
