About this title

Synopsis:

This fresh account of Massachusetts's infamous Bulger brothers unveils a stunning criminal alliance, and with its dual biography format, goes deeper than the New York Times bestselling Black Mass. For the first time, journalist Howie Carr reveals the real story behind the infamous Bulgers-two brothers from South Boston who grew up to control a state. With political corruption on one side and deadly force on the other, the Bulgers shared a diabolic and destructive alliance for decades. James "Whitey" Bulger, the "bad" son, blazed a murderous trail to become Boston's most feared mobster and remains one of the FBI's Ten Most Wanted Fugitives. William "Billy" Bulger, the "good" son, wielded the gavel as president of the Massachusetts State Senate and the University of Massachusetts, but was eventually forced from both positions. The parallel stories of these two brothers, rich in anecdote and shocking in their revelations, read like an unholy hybrid of All the King's Men and The Godfather.

About the Author:

Carr, a native of Portland, Maine is a graduate of Deerfield Academy and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he was a member of Phi Beta Kappa. When he turns the microphone off, he is an award-winning front-page columnist for the Boston Herald. Known for his scathing exposes of local politicians, he has raised lots of eyebrows and voices over the years. He's famous for pushing the envelope and not regretting that he went too far. His opinion is valued by the TV stations he's regularly featured on: NBC Today; MSNBC; C-SPAN; Court TV; Geraldo; CNN; Larry King Live; The Fox News Network; CBS This Morning. New England tunes in to Howie Carr. Besides being heard on his flagship station WRKO 680 WRKO in Boston, he is syndicated across New England. He's interviewed numerous politicians, authors, and celebrities, and he's not afraid to ask those "no comment" questions. How did Howie get to where he is today? He has worked as a reporter/commentator for Channels 2 and 56. In 1980-81, Carr was Boston City Hall bureau chief of The Boston Herald American, and he later worked as the paper's State House bureau chief. As a political reporter for WNEV, Channel 7, his coverage of then Mayor Kevin White was so relentless that after the mayor announced he wasn't running again, he told the Boston Sunday Globe that one of the things he enjoyed most about his impending retirement was not having Carr chase him around the city. In 1985, he won the National Magazine Award, the magazine industry's equivalent of the Pulitzer Prize, for Essays and Criticism. In television, he has been nominated for an Emmy Award. Carr, 51, lives in Wellesley. He is married and has five daughters.
