Whitey free pdf The definitive saga of James J. "Whitey" Bulger--the crime boss and killer who brought the FBI to its knees--and the gripping narrative of his last days as a fugitive
Drawing on a trove of sealed files and previously classified material, "Whitey "tracks the exploits of a true American original - a psychopath who could mix brutal intimidation with a politican's soft touch. While Bulger cultivates a Robin Hood persona, "Whitey "reveals his true character of supreme narcissism and diabolical devotion to self-preservation at the expense of others.
In "Whitey," the bestselling authors of "Black Mass "and award-winning Boston journalists Dick Lehr and Gerard O'Neill illuminate the events of Bulger's corrupt life in order to deconstruct his insatiable hunger for power and control. This is a deeply rendered portrait of evil that spans nearly a century, taking Whitey from the streets of his Boyhood Southie in the 1940s to his cell in Alcatraz to his cunning, corrupt pact with the FBI in the 1970s, and finally, dramatically, to Santa Monica, California, where for fifteen years he hid in plain sight as one of the FBI's Ten Most Wanted.
Whitey Bulger is one of the most powerful and deadly crime bosses of our time. This is his story.
