Audio Book Summary

James 'Whitey' Bulger became one of the most ruthless gangsters in US history, and all because of an unholy deal he made with a childhood friend. John Connolly a rising star in the Boston FBI office, offered Bulger protection in return for helping the Feds eliminate Boston's Italian mafia. But no one offered Boston protection from Whitey Bulger, who, in a blizzard of gangland killings, took over the city's drug trade. Whitey's deal with Connolly's FBI spiraled out of control to become the biggest informant scandal in FBI history. Black Mass is a New York Times and Boston Globe bestseller, written by two former reporters who were on the case from the beginning. It is an epic story of violence, double-cross, and corruption at the center of which are the black hearts of two old friends whose lives unfolded in the darkness of permanent midnight.

    What excellently written and narrated book about the infamous Boston Crime UnderLord James aka ‘Whitey’ Bulger and the FBI’s unholy alliance with him to bring down the Boston Mafia. This book is filled with the details of the rise and fall of Whitey Bulger and his henchmen Steve aka ‘Rifleman’ Flemmi as well as disgraced former FBI agent John Connelly. A complicated tale of deceit, ruthlessness, and murder written in an understandable way.
