FALL RIVER, MA - The Fall River Fire Museum welcomed author Wayne Miller, retired ATF agent, to showcase his new books at a recent book signing.

Mr Miller has written two books detailing his career as an ATF agent and some of the high profile cases he was involved in. His first book titled "Burn, Boston, Burn" details the events surounding the largest arson case in the history of the country. This case involved a group of arsonists who were upset about massive layoffs in the Boston Police and Fire Departments in the 1980s. This arson ring set close to 265 multiple-alarm fires that consumed vacant homes and factories, and injured firefighters.

The book outlines the case brought in federal court and the resulting convictions.
