Publisher's Summary

In Slaughter in the Streets, Don Stradley masterfully unfolds the story of how Boston became "boxing's murder capital." From the early days of Boston's Mafia, to the era of Whitey Bulger, Stradley tells the fascinating stories of men who were drawn to the dual shady worlds of boxing and the mob.

Boston was once a thriving boxing city. And it was also host to an ever-expanding underworld. From the early days of Boston's Mafia, to the era of Whitey Bulger, many of the city’s boxers found themselves drawn to the criminal life. Most of them ended up dead. Slaughter in the Streets tells the violent and often tragic story of these misguided young men who thought their toughness in the ring could protect them from the most cold-blooded killers in the country.

Slaughter in the Streets: When Boston Became Boxing's Murder Capital is the third in the Hamilcar Noir series. Hamilcar Noir is "Hard-Hitting True Crime" that blends boxing and true crime, featuring riveting stories captured in high-quality prose, with cover art inspired by classic pulp novels.

Great Book with a perfect narration

Great stories of the Boston boxers who turned to crime. The Narrator had a way of making me feel sorry for the criminals as if they had no choice.

Excellent Listen

Just finished this one and really enjoyed it. I’m not a boxing fan necessarily, but I enjoy true crime and mob stuff. I also grew up in Boston and it was great to hear so much of the gangland history I didn’t know. The narrator did a great job as well. He uses an occasional accent but mostly reads it straight. The accent is authentic. I looked him up because I was curious and he grew up in Boston. Recommended.
