The case included a stolen police car dumped in Boston Harbor, a threat letter consisting of cut-out letters and plans to murder witnesses. After the Boston Police Officer/arsonist became a witness, 17 undercover contacts were used to perfect a Federal case.Agent Miller spent innumerable hours with those perpetrators who became Government witnesses. An arsonist's journal provided the basis for chilling insights into their words, actions and thoughts. Mr. Miller now has regular contact with that arsonist who has provided additional information in support of Burn Boston Burn: The Largest Arson Case in the History of the Country. Every firefighter who has heard of the story wants to read about it. Anyone interested in true crime, investigative procedures, the inner workings of a criminal conspiracy and fires will want to read this book.Available in Kindle, paperback, hardback and audiobook.
