Interview at the Boston Marathon expo with Bob Babbitt, chatting with athletes who qualified for the Boston Marathon during the third and final marathon portion of the Ironman Triathlon, for Postcards from the Finish Line:


“Nichols’ gift for detail and narrative organization has resulted in a finely-crafted book that delivers the goods (and the bads), in a thoroughly compelling page-turner.” —Huffington Post

“Deeply researched and evocative, Nichols’ narrative clearly illustrates where a single bad decision can lead.  As events unfold, readers experience the emotional roller coaster inherent to dangerous, illegal activities.  Readers who love true crime will find themselves engrossed in this true tale of excess.”         Booklist
