Whitey Bulger Book Review

Well, the trial has been going on for quite a while now, but finally a Bulger book coververdict is in. Whitey Bulger has been convicted in his hometown of South Boston.

During the days of his gangsterism, Boston Globe journalists Kevin Cullen and Shelley Murphy covered the story. It took them all over the country, but what they uncovered was not only gruesome and nefarious, but amazing in the fact that a man could live the life of an Irish-American gangster in the late 20th Century. How did he do it? Come check out this book review. But I’ll give you a hint: The FBI helped him.

What I’m looking forward to is feedback from Whitey himself. I found that he has an opinion of almost every book and article written about himself. I don’t know if he still has access to such things, but hey Whitey, let me know what you think.
