Brentwood, NH Library Event
I will be presenting next Thursday, Sept 28 at 6 pm at the Mary E. Bartlett Memorial Library, 22 Dalton Rd, Brentwood, NH about the investigation and story behind perhaps the largest arson case in the history of the country, BURN BOSTON BURN and also the multitude of stories in my second book, BANG BOOM BURN. There will be great slides and videos from fires associated to these cases.
Here's a teaser: Burn Boston Burn-The Largest Arson Case in the History of the Country is an astounding true crime case about a conspiracy of 9 men, including 3 Boston cops and a Boston firefighter, who burned Boston and surrounding communities in the early 1980s due to tax-cutting measures that caused layoffs of hundreds of police and firefighters. Over 2 years, these fire buffs turned arsonists, torched 264 buildings, causing millions of dollars in damages and hundreds of injuries. The city was ablaze with nightly multiple-alarm fires, sirens wailing through the streets and people too afraid to sleep.
Told by the ATF Federal Agent who lived this domestic terrorist investigation for three years, Wayne Miller interweaves the activities of the arsonists with those of the investigators, the firefighters, and the citizens of the area. He has superb photos and videos of actual fires from the case. An arsonist’s journal provided the basis for chilling insights into their words, actions and thoughts.
As a bonus, I will also touch upon the stories of my second book, BANG BOOM BURN, a collection of 22 short stories including the recovery of 46 stolen M-16s, undercover cases, 2 horrific bombings, and another dozen arson cases of all types.
It will be very entertaining and informative for all fire and police, plus fans of true crime. Please consider coming and may I ask that you spread the word to your local communities. I would much appreciate a large crowd! Thank you in advance.
