Burn Boston Burn: The Story of the Largest Arson Case in the History of the Country (IN-PERSON)
TUESDAY, AUGUST 226:00—8:00 PM Program Room Newburyport Public Library, Newburyport Public Library, 94 State Street, Newburyport, MA, 01950
Burn Boston Burn tells the story of Boston in the early 1980s when the City is set ablaze. Two hundred sixty-four buildings were burned, intentionally set on fire, resulting in millions of dollars in damages and hundreds of injuries. This is the true story of the deep conspiracy of nine men, determined to wreak havoc on the city and the relentless investigators who uncovered them.
Told from the perspective of the head ATF Special Agent in charge of the investigation, Wayne Miller, Burn Boston Burn is a tale of political deceit and internal corruption. The book details the series of crimes that shook the city of Boston and became known as one of the largest arson cases on record in the history of the country.
Wayne Miller was a Special Agent, Criminal Investigator and Certified Fire Investigator for the U. S. Treasury, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms for 25 years. During his career, Mr. Miller examined more than 2,300 fire and explosion scenes, responded to over twenty-five major incidents, as well as testified as an expert in more than forty cases in Federal and State courts in civil and criminal cases.
