Publisher's Summary

John Connolly and James "Whitey" Bulger grew up together on the 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 Whitey had become godfather of the Irish Mob. Connolly had an idea, a scheme that might bring Bulger into the FBI fold and Connolly into the bureau's big leagues. But Bulger had other plans.

Total Power!

Black Mass is an Intense Ride that Drips with Total Power, Curruption, and Murder. Definitely A Book to Shock The Unshockable! The 1980's were My Playground as A Kid and, Thankfully, Far from The Lives of The Individuals within These Pages. Highly-Charged, A Gripping Read! Definitely Not Family Reading, unless Your from A Family of Wiseguys!
