"Black Mass: Whitey Bulger, the FBI, and a Devil's Deal," by Dick Lehr and Gerard O'NeillRead about another book on the list.
Can you ever really leave your past behind? They grew up together in Boston's tough South Boston neighborhood, and then, years later, childhood friends Whitey Bulger and John Connolly met up again. Whitey had become a leader in the Irish Mob and John was rising in the ranks of the FBI. Boston Globe reporters Dick Lehr and Gerard O'Neill explore the deal that they say was struck between these two men – an agreement that quickly got out of hand.
