Overview

On August 28, 2003, in the suburbs of Erie, Pennsylvania, a pizza delivery man named Brian Wells was accosted by several men who locked a time bomb around his neck. They then ordered him to rob a bank. After delivering the money, he would receive clues to help him disarm the bomb. It was one of the most ingenious bank robbery schemes in history, known as Collarbomb by the FBI.

It did not go according to plan.

Wells, picked up by police shortly after the robbery, never found the clues he needed. Investigating the crime after his grisly death, the FBI soon discovered that Wells was not, in fact, an innocent victim. He was merely the first co-conspirator to fall in a bizarre trail of death following the crime.

Jerry Clark, the lead FBI Special Agent who cracked what became known as the Pizza Bomber case, and investigative reporter Ed Palattella, who followed it from the beginning, tell the complete story, from the inside, for the first time.

This book was suspenseful from start to finish. It was very hard to put down once I started it. I was born & raised in Erie, PA where the story took place so most of the places, streets & names were familiar to me. This was a very interesting book which walked you through how this bizarre crime started and went wrong. Margaret Diehl grew up one block from my house & I had her mother for a grade school teacher which really made it interesting for me. A must read!! Ron-Casa Grande,AZ

Book is written in extreme detail.. Some is drawn from the trial transcripts, but there was so much gpvernment misconduct and orchestrated testimony that there is a question of credibility. FBI Clark actually never testified as the US Attorney lead him. Clark only said "yes" to the government's questions. That is not reliable fact finding.
