The Black Mass
The Irish Mob, The FBI, And A Devil s Deal
D*** Lehr & Gerard O Neill
Two boys John Connolly and James Whitey Bulger grew up together on the
tough 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
Bulger had become the godfather of the Irish mob. Connolly had a scheme that
might bring Bulger into the FBI fold and John Connolly into the Bureau s big
leagues. But Bulger had other plans. This is the chilling true story of what
happened between them a dark deal that spiraled out of control, leading to
drug dealing, racketeering, and murder. Illustrated with B&W photos.
