After seeing numerous headlines in Irish newspapers reporting sightings of Bulger and talk of safety deposit boxes being found, I decided it was time to read this book.I can honestly say I wasn't one bit disappointed, I found this book to be very factual and to contain every thing you would need to know about an FBI most wanted fugitive,this book tells of Whitey Bulger's rise and fall, and yet you know he's still out there living off the profits he gained while being protected by the FBI,this book provides a facinating insight into the Boston FBI and also the politics of that time.I can honestly say this book is a must read as it has everything.
Black Mass:Whitey Bulger,The FBI and a Devil's Deal is an absolutely fascinating and disturbing account of the twisted and unlawful relationship between notorious gangster,James J. 'Whitey' Bulger,and agents of America's Federal Bureau of Investigation,(FBI).It is thoroughly shocking that these men were allowed to continue their association for so many years,under the noses of US law enforcement agencies.
I can't for the life of me think how this Book passed me by ! I had recently seen the film on Sky and followed up with some internet searching that told me the book had to be read !! Fantastic story( fact is surely stranger than Fiction).
