Hitman : the untold story of Johnny Martorano : Whitey Bulger's enforcer and the most feared gangster in the underworld by Howie Carr( Book )

9 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 874 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Crime reporter Howie Carr takes us into the heart of the life of Johnny Martorano. For two decades, Martorano struck fear into anyone even remotely connected to his world. His partnership with Whitey Bulger and the infamous Winter Hill Gang led to twenty murders--for which Johnny would serve twelve years in prison. Carr also looks at the politicians and FBI agents who aided Johnny and Whitey, and at the flamboyant city of Boston, which Martorano so ruthlessly ruled. A plethora of paradoxes, Johnny Martorano was Mr. Mom by day and man-about-town by night. Surrounded by fast-living politicians, sports celebrities, and showbiz entertainers, Johnny was charismatically colorful--as charming as he was frightening. After all, he was, in the end, a hitman. The paperback edition of Howie Carr's riveting true-crime story includes a new epilogue detailing Whitney Bulger's dramatic June 2011 capture. --From publisher description

Killers by Howie Carr( Book )

8 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Whitey Bulger is gone from Boston, but Bench McCarthy is here to take his place. Bench McCarthy is a thug's thug, a hitman, an underworld jack-of-all-trades running his own mob out of Winter Hill in Somerville while simultaneously handling "wet work" for Sally Curto, a half-demented, totally obscene mob boss. After years of gangland peace, Bench and Sally suddenly find themselves clay pigeons for unknown hit crews coming at them from every direction. The motives are as murky as the hitmen themselves, but all roads seem to lead back to the State House, where corrupt pols are battling over a bill to legalize billions of dollars' worth of new casinos. In order to stay alive as he puts an end to the uprising, the wisecracking Bench must set aside his objections and enlist the help of Jack Reilly, a dodgy ex-cop turned private investigator. The hunter has become the hunted. Killers is a thrilling ride through the dark underbelly of Boston crime and politics that could only have been written by the man novelist James Ellroy calls "the Bacon-Banging Boston Bossman"-Howie Carr, the newspaper columnist on whom Whitey Bulger first put out a contract and then called as a defense witness during his 2013 murder trial in Boston"--

Howie Barr chronicles the life of John Martorano, one of organized crime's most deadly enforcers. Offered a slew of football scholarships, Martorano could have gone to the college of his choice.

Rifleman : the untold story of Stevie Flemmi, Whitey Bulger's partner by Howie Carr( )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stevie "the Rifleman" Flemmi was, for forty years, one of the most feared gangsters in Boston, and for much of that time, he was the partner of Whitey Bulger, the sixteen-year fugitive with a $2 million reward on his head who was captured in 2011. Flemmi has been convicted of ten murders and took the Fifth Amendment when asked about ten others. His cohort, Bulger, is charged with nineteen more. "Rifleman" is the story of Flemmi's life of crime, as told to federal and state law enforcement after he pleaded guilty in 2003. The original document on which the book is based is called a "DEA 6," and it ran 146 single-spaced pages, covering dozens of extortions, assaults, and murders, including two of his girlfriends, one of whom was also his common law stepdaughter. Supplementing the text are close to 300 photographs from Carr's own collection
Chappaquiddick : power, privilege, and the Ted Kennedy cover-up by Leo Damore( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A young woman leaves a party with a wealthy US senator. The next morning her body is discovered in his car at the bottom of a pond.This is the damning true story of the death of campaign strategist Mary Jo Kopechne at Chappaquiddick and of the senator-a thirty-seven-year-old Senator Ted Kennedy-who left her trapped underwater while he returned to his hotel, slept, and made phone calls to associates. It is the story of a powerful, privileged American man who was able to treat a woman's life as disposable without facing real consequences. And it is the story of a shameful political cover-up involving one of the nation's most well-connected families and its network of lawyers, public relations people, and friends who ensured Ted Kennedy remained a respected member of the Senate for forty more years.Leo Damore's 1988 national bestseller, originally entitled Senatorial Privilege, almost didn't make it into print after its original publisher, Random House, judged it too explosive and backed out of its contract with Damore. Mysteriously, none of the other big New York publishers picked it up. Only when small independent publisher Regnery obtained the manuscript was the book's publication made possible and the true story of the so-called "Chappaquiddick incident" finally told. This thirtiethth anniversary edition of Senatorial Privilege is being released to coincide with the nationwide theatrical release of the movie Chappaquiddick starring Jason Clarke, Kate Mara, Ed Helms, Bruce Dern, and Jim Gaffigan
