The Black Mass
The Irish Mob, The FBI, And A Devil’s Deal
**** Lehr & Gerard O’Neill
Two boys – John Connolly and James “Whitey” Bulger – grew up together on the
tough streets of South Boston. Decades later, in the mid-1970s, they met
again. By then, Connolly was a major figure in the FBI’s Boston office and
Bulger had become the godfather of the Irish mob. Connolly had a scheme that
might bring Bulger into the FBI fold and John Connolly into the Bureau’s big
leagues. But Bulger had other plans. This is the chilling true story of what
happened between them – a dark deal that spiraled out of control, leading to
drug dealing, racketeering, and murder. Illustrated with B&W photos.
