Abstract:

June 23, 2011. The news of notorious gangster Whitey Bulger's capture--after sixteen years on the FBI's Most Wanted list--swept the nation. But for Thomas J. Foley, a former Massachusetts state police colonel and the investigator who sparked Bulger's flight from Boston, the moment was bittersweet. The FBI may have caught Bulger, but as Foley had painfully discovered almost two decades before, they were also responsible for his escape. It had been known that Whitey Bulger was a secret FBI informant but it has never been revealed--until now--that the FBI was actually actively protecting Bulger from Foley. At one point, the FBI even suggested that he and his team should lay off their investigation. But Foley's efforts resulted in convictions of a half-dozen of Boston's most notorious thugs and also led to the conviction of one of the FBI agents who abetted Bulger. Here, Foley honestly recounts how his admiration for the nation's top law enforcement agency was gradually transformed by dark realities.--From publisher description.
