About this title

Synopsis:

With a $2 million reward on his head, James “Whitey” Bulger had been the most-wanted fugitive in America for 16 years when he was captured by the FBI in June 2011. Two years later, this Boston organized-crime boss went on trial in his hometown. In his latest book, Ratman: The Trial and Conviction of Whitey Bulger, New York Times best-selling author Howie Carr chronicles the trial of this notorious mob boss, who was charged with 19 murders. Carr describes the 7-week trial in vivid detail, using photographs submitted as evidence and excerpts from previously sealed FBI reports to illustrate the parade of hitmen, drug dealers, bookies, and crooked FBI agents testifying against their former boss. Carr also shares accounts of a uniquely personal nature, including testimony from one of Bulger’s hitman that Whitey ordered him to kill Carr in the driveway of his home. After seeing Carr walk out his front door holding the hand of his young daughter, the hitman got cold feet. Despite Bulger’s attempts to keep this Boston Herald columnist and radio talk-show host out of the courtroom by listing him as a defense witness, the judge allowed Carr to cover the trial, putting readers in the front row at one of the most entrancing murder trials in recent history. This book is the perfect gift for any true-crime fan.

About the Author:

Howie Carr is the author of two New York Times best-sellers, The Brothers Bulger and Hitman. His most recent book, Rifleman, is a look into the life and mind of Whitey Bulger’s partner, Stevie Flemmi. Carr has been writing about Whitey Bulger for more than 30 years. Before Bulger fled in 1994, Carr was such an implacable foe of the serial killing gangster that Whitey and a henchman allegedly tried to kill him as he left his house in suburban Boston—an incident reported in 2006 on 60 Minutes. This summer, Bulger unsuccessfully tried to have him banned from the courtroom. Bulger’s younger brother, Billy Bulger, thenpresident of the Massachusetts State Senate, publicly referred to Carr as “the savage.” Ratman is the last chapter, completing a series of fascinating books detailing organized crime in Boston. Carr is a columnist for the Boston Herald, host of a daily syndicated four-hour radio program heard throughout New England, and a member of the national Radio Hall of Fame in Chicago
