Publisher's Summary

The New England Mafia was a hugely powerful organization that survived by using violence to ruthlessly crush anyone that threatened it, or its lucrative gambling, loansharking, bootlegging, and other enterprises. Psychopathic strongman Joseph "The Animal" Barboza was one of the most feared mob enforcers of all time, killing as many as 30 people for business and pleasure.

From information based on newly declassified documents and the use of underworld sources, Boston Mob spans the gutters and alleyways of East Boston, Providence, and Charlestown to the halls of Congress in Washington, D.C., and Boston's Beacon Hill. Its players include governors and mayors, and the Mafia Commission of New York City.

From the tragic legacy of the Kennedy family to the Winter Hill-Charlestown feud, the fall of the New England Mafia and the rise of Whitey Bulger, Mark Songini's Boston Mob is a saga of treachery, murder, greed, and the survival of ruthless men pitted against legal systems and police forces.

Awesome Boston Mob Story

Non stop thriller, but it was true! Great history of the Boston Mob and the Mob wars that started in the 60's.

Very Good

A very good book that was very well narrated & quite darkly funny in some parts without meaning to be. The only reason I gave it 4 stars Overall was because it was slightly hard to follow in parts as it does tend to skip from one story to another, otherwise well worth a listen...
