In the tradition of 102 Minutes and Columbine, the definitive audiobook 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 audiobook 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.

Faithful Retelling of tragic event
Long Mile Home (LMH) is a faithful retelling of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing. LMH offers a comprehensive and concise story of all of the events associated with the bombing. If you followed the events of the Boston bombing through the Boston Globe or NYT, LMH has very little additional information to offer. There are no added insights into the motivations or behaviors of the bombers beyond those identified by CNN. The authors do spend a good deal of time focuses on the first responders and personal stories of bombing victims. However, there is nothing revealing or new LMT offers to the reader.
