Graphic. . . Heart-wrenching. . . Passionate
—New York Journal of Books
No single reporter has covered the Boston bombing as thoroughly as Michele McPhee. She knows Boston-its streets, its cops, and its corridors of power. Maximum Harm is riveting-a tribute to the first responders, and, startlingly, a troubling exposé of the FBI’s botched handling of the Tsarnaev brothers. You may think you know this story, but until you read this book, you don’t.
—T. J. English, New York Times–bestselling author of Where the Bodies Were Buried and The Westies
In Maximum Harm, Michele McPhee uncovers shocking new truths about the Boston Marathon bombers and those in government, law enforcement, and their own community who gave them free rein to plot and execute one of the most vicious terror attacks ever carried out on American soil. This book will grab you, shake you, and will not let you go!
—Casey Sherman, New York Times–bestselling author of The Finest Hours and Boston Strong
While the government quietly closed their case against the lone terrorist brought to trial in the Boston Marathon bombing, Michele McPhee continued to work behind the scenes developing investigative leads through her cadre of sources. Maximum Harm is the latest example of McPhee’s investigative excellence and exposes many of the details kept secret from the public, leaving the reader questioning if justice was truly served.
