While I do not wish to glamorize what Bulger did in his crime-centered existence, I must say that he was a cool cat. Loyal to his parents, brother and immediate "families." Whitey did have his principles - Sunday was a thug-free day. He adhered to the mobster code that bystanders and children were never to be hurt.
For me, when Whitey, gun in hand, looked through a front-facing window of a rival's house, drew down on the man, but smiled and walked away instead. He passed up on an easy kill because there was a child in the room with his nemesis.
I have not. What a gem I have missed.I greatly admire James Colby's credibility in his reading. It's as if either Bulger is telling the story, his FBI "handlers" or other gangsters. Colby was a perfect fit for this book. My next step is to search Audible for books read by Mr. Colby.
Irish wiseguy ... I have no clue. Wiseguy offs other wiseguys (who need killing)?
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Engrossed and hooked from the first chapter.
Not printed/audio-booked this loser.
Like I said, get your tarnished spoon out ...
Once I hit DELETE in iTunes.
authentic, professionally dictated, fascinating
when the writer himself speaks
no, but will dig for him in the future
Stopped listening to this narrator. He ought to take his gravelly voice and stomp it out in an ashtray.
TEN STARS VERSUS FIVE
The authenticity, the bravery, the no-holding back in erasing a depraved animal.
An author with talent, other than the usual so-so
A narrator whose voice isn't fingernails on a blackboard
Maybe. It was a great book!
I enjoyed Laird's performance very much. Will definitely keep an eye out for his narration in the future.
Joe Barrett is an excellent reader for this genre.
These authors are the FBI's original profilers. Smart, gutsy, creative and determined.
I enjoy the credibility John Douglas brings to the table by narrating his own book.
I remember this incident, so it was nice to learn more of the background story.
The interaction between mother and daughter.
The book could have been cut down quite a bit. So much detail re minor characters, I became frustrated. Didn't finish the book b/c it dragged on and on, but had heard enough and was satisfied when I stopped.
The narrator should not have been stuck in a library voice. Had to stop torturing myself.
Only that I pulled the plug.
