Boston Globe journalists, Scott Helman and Jenna Russell have written a book entitled Long Mile Home Boston Under Attack, the City's Courageous Recovery, and the Epic Hunt for Justice which tells 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.
