When two bombs cut a swath of death and destruction through the crowd of runners and spectators at the finish line of the Boston Marathon, the FBI steps up to lead a massive manhunt for the perpetrators. As the nation watches transfixed, the Bureau and its law enforcement partners work against time to find the bombers before they can strike again. When the suspects finally emerge, they lead authorities on a high-stakes chase through the streets of greater Boston. Riveting details are disclosed by two FBI agents and a local police sergeant who knew that time was their enemy: Rick DesLauriers (who retired as Special Agent in charge of the Boston field office and previously worked as director of the counterintelligence division at FBI headquarters), Nancy Aguilar (a retired Special Agent of the FBI who worked extraterritorial threats) and John MacLellan (a retired police sergeant who served as a patrol officer in Watertown, Mass., for 30 years). The agents and MacLellan sit down with Cindy Coppola to talk about the intensity of the bombing and putting their lives on the line.
