Rogue Mobster chronicles the history of the Winter Hill Gang and the New England mafia through the eyes and ears of Boston organized crime figure Mark Silverman. Silverman explains how shifting allegiances and internal power struggles have deciminated the once mighty Patriarca Crime Family. In 1988 Frank Cadillac Salemme was released from prison and decided to rekindle his criminal partnership with his old pals Whitey Bulger and Stevie Flemmi which led to at least six mob related killings in 1991 and sparked an all out power play in the New England mafia. The next six years brought with it a slew of underworld slayings. Some were personal while others were directly related to Salemme's grab for power. Rogue Mobster is told in the words of Mark Silverman, who got inside the mob and became an integral part of the ensuing war. His account is the first-ever inside glimpse into what went on at the street level, why people were killed, and what the stakes were. Rogue Mobster is a firsthand account of the violent Boston mob wars of the 1990s, when bodies were piling up across New England and Mark Silverman was walking a tightrope between Winter Hill and the Mafia Rogue Mobster also served as inspiration for Warner Brothers Blockbuster film Black Mass.

The New England mob was Mark Silverman's life. He grew up in the shadow of the Winter Hill gang and the Mafia. With a Jewish last name, his opportunities should have been limited in Boston's Irish/Italian underworld but he moved up quickly, gaining acceptance across the board. Mark Silverman takes the phrase, sleeping with the enemy to a whole new level in Rogue Mobster. Consummate researcher, Scott Deitche, sets the scene during the New England mob wars of the 1990's. Silverman spares no details describing how he worked for both a renegade faction of La Cosa Nostra and the Mafia. Throw in corrupt cops with and axe to grind and you have a mobbed-up bomb ready to blow sky high. Along the way, dispels the myth of an honor- bound society. With most of the mob war's fallout dead or in prison, Silverman feels lucky to be alive, his self respect in tact.
