Abstract:

This unforgettable narrative follows the astonishing career and epic manhunt for Whitey Bulger -- a gangster whose life was more sensational than fiction.

Chronicles the criminal career of the gangster who provided a protection racket against drug lords, ran illegal gambling, robbed banks, and served as an informant for the FBI until going into hiding for sixteen years. Raised in a South Boston housing project, James "Whitey" Bulger became the most wanted fugitive of his generation. In this story the authors follow his criminal career from teenage thievery to bank robberies to the building of his underworld empire and a string of brutal murders.
