Summary

John Connolly and James "Whitey" Bulger grew up together on the streets of South Boston. Decades later, in the mid-1970s, they met again. By then Connolly was a major figure in the FBI's Boston office, and Whitey had become godfather of the Irish Mob. Connolly had an idea, a scheme that might bring Bulger into the FBI fold and Connolly into the bureau's big leagues. But Bulger had other plans.

“A jaw-dropping, true-life tale of how two thugs corrupted the FBI.” ( Baltimore Sun)

Total Power!

Black Mass is an Intense Ride that Drips with Total Power, Curruption, and Murder. Definitely A Book to Shock The Unshockable! The 1980's were My Playground as A Kid and, Thankfully, Far from The Lives of The Individuals within These Pages. Highly-Charged, A Gripping Read! Definitely Not Family Reading, unless Your from A Family of Wiseguys!
