Publisher's Summary

Mayhem goes a long way toward answering questions that still linger about the notorious Boston Marathon bombing, such as: Where were the bombs made? And what had been Tamerlan Tsarnaev's relationship to the FBI? This engaging narrative casts a spotlight on the US government's relationship with the older Tsarnaev brother as his younger brother, Dzhokhar, continues his efforts to have his death sentence commuted.

The federal government may be forced to confirm a longstanding relationship with Tamerlan and its decision to shield him from investigation for the Sept. 11, 2011, ISIS-style triple murder of three friends. As they infamously did with Whitey Bulger, federal agents appear to have protected Tamerlan because of his value as a paid informant.

Mayhem is a substantially revised and updated edition of Michele R. McPhee's earlier book about the bombing, Maximum Harm

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Critic Reviews

"McPhee's latest true crime narrative takes the story of the Boston Marathon bombing to new levels with her gripping account of the explosion, the frantic search for the culprits, and the eventual trial of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. Even readers familiar with the contours of the tragedy are likely to find McPhee's narrative terrifying and moving." (Publishers Weekly)

"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. Mayhem is riveting and 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 best-selling author of Where the Bodies Were Buried and The Westies

"A riveting, eye-opening page-turner that takes you into the real world of international terrorism." (Bernard B. Kerik, New York City police commissioner (retired))

Tough to follow

I am a local resident to the Boston area and was excited for this book. I even preordered it. But it has disappointed me.
The voice is very difficult to follow and the storyline jumps around too much.
