In this gritty New York Times best-seller, the true story of a crooked deal between the FBI and the Irish Mob is exposed. By providing a penetrating look into the mean streets of mid-1970s South Boston, the author shows how two kids from the neighborhood cross paths again years later, ending in the biggest informant scandal in FBI history.

Gangsters, cops, FBI, dames and dolls. Good guys (who weren't), bad guys (depending on circumstance and outlook at any moment). Enjoyed it for awhile - 'til it got too long, too much the "same old". Did finally finish the last chapters after several months hiatus. Humanity finds a way to disappoint.
Whitey because he was what every lover of organized crime books wants to read about
It was well done and well read. That seems like something all audio books have, but it is NOT.
Nothing exreme. Just well done.
Chosen another book
Just seems slow and hard to follow
Narrator was fine
You can't cut a character as its ment to be based on fact
Just not my kind of book
I love books on the Mafia but this one was difficult to follow. I have read many books from audible and have been very pleased but this one was painful to get through. I'll admit I ordered it without any other reviews...I'll never do that again. You like puzzles...read this one. Maybe you can figure it out.
