Black Mass: The Irish Mob, the FBI, and a Devil's Deal
Two boys -- John Connolly, and James "Whitey" Bulger -- grew up together on the streets of South Boston. Decades later, in the late 1970s, they would meet again. By then, Connolly was a major figure in the FBI's Boston office and Whitey had become godfather of the Irish Mob. What happened between them -- a dirty deal to trade secrets and take down Boston's Italian Mafia in the process -- would spiral out of control, leading to murders, and drug dealing, and racketeering indictments. And, ultimately, to Bulger making the FBI's Ten Most Wanted List.
Told in compelling narrative style by the Boston Globe reporters who covered the case from the beginning, Black Mass is a riveting epic crime story that is also a book about Boston and Irish America; about the pull of place; and about the ties between people -- ties that bind, and ties that blind.
