Synopsis: The riveting New York Times bestseller by award-winning columnist Howie Carr--now with a stunning new afterword detailing Whitey Bulger's capture.
For years their familiar story was of two siblings who took different paths out of South Boston: William "Billy" Bulger, former president of the Massachusetts State Senate; and his brother James "Whitey" Bulger, a vicious criminal who became the FBI's second most-wanted man after Osama Bin Laden. While Billy cavorted with the state's blue bloods to become a powerful political force, Whitey blazed a murderous trail to the top rung of organized crime. Now, in this compelling narrative, Carr uncovers a sinister world of FBI turncoats, alliances between various branches of organized crime, St. Patrick's Day shenanigans, political infighting, and the complex relationship between two brothers who were at one time kings.
As the film Black Mass, starring Johnny Depp as Whitey Bulger, hits theaters, take a deeper dive into the story of the Bulgers, and their fifty-year reign over Boston with Howie Carr's THE BROTHERS BULGER.
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.
