The life story of Whitey Bulger should have the makings of a great book or at least a very interesting one - just unfortunately not by this author. This book is supposed to based on exhaustive research - but research of what exactly? This author seems to rely exclusively on third hand information regarding everything to do with his subject matter. Maybe he exhaustively researched newspaper articles and the official record but what appears clear (and I'm not even half way through the book) is that the author doesn't seem to have interviewed anyone remotely close to Whitey Bulger or the events that shaped his life at any stage.. There's no intimacy with the subject he's writing about and he tries to compensate for that by filling pages with details which have little or no relevance. Another reviewer here used the words boring and dull to describe this book and he was right. .

Tons and tons of dull facts about his early formative criminal life, half way through I got so bored I gave up.

I found the book fascinating on many levels the involvement of a member of the F.B.I. was shocking and begs the question how often this occurs. Overall a very good read about a very dark subject matter.
