Where the Bodies Were Buried

Whitey Bulger and the World That Made Him

DAISY - 2016
Rate this:
For decades one of the most dangerous men in America, Bulger, the brother of influential Massachusetts senator Billy Bulger, was often romanticized as a Robin Hood-like thief and protector. While he was functioning as the de facto mob boss of New England, Bulger was also serving as a top-echelon informant for the FBI, covertly feeding local prosecutors information about other mob figures, while using their cover to cleverly eliminate his rivals, reinforce his own power, and protect himself from prosecution. In 2011 he was arrested in Southern California and returned to Boston, where he was tried and convicted of racketeering and murder. Offers a startlingly revisionist account of Bulger's story, and of the decades-long culture of collusion between the feds and the Irish and Italian mob factions that have ruled New England since the 1970s.
