Praise

“A comprehensive life and times…a fascinating psychological profile.”
The Boston Globe

Whitey is the definitive word on the whole sordid saga of the Bulger mob. Expertly crafted, beautifully told.” —Dennis Lehane, author of Live by Night

 “Having first uncovered the terrible Bulger story, Gerard O’Neill and Dick Lehr have now brought it full circle – a true circle of hell. Exemplary journalism, high drama, and, for Bulger’s victims, an ongoing tragedy: rarely has a book mattered more.” 
—James Carroll, author of An American Requiem
 
Black Mass, also by Lehr and O’Neill, was the definitive book on the corrupt relationship of the Boston office of the FBI and the notorious gangster, Whitey Bulger. Whitey will stand right next to it as the most in depth portrayal yet of the life of the man who ruled the South Boston underworld by terror and duplicity. In this ground-breaking, intimately researched work, we learn how he became the person who was feared by so many. Once you start reading, you don’t want to put it down.” —Bill Bratton, former Boston and NYPD Police Commissioner and LAPD Police Chief
 
“Lehr and O’Neill have outdone themselves. Whitey isn’t just a chilling biography of a monster—it’s also a vivid portrait of Southie, a blood-spattered history of Boston mob wars, and a searing indictment   of the corrupt FBI agents who literally gave Whitey Bulger a license to kill. Full of new information about Whitey’s prison stint as a young man and his life as an elderly fugitive, this is the definitive account of one of weirdest and most sordid chapters in the history of American crime.” —Tom Perrotta, author of The Leftovers  

“Whitey is a masterpiece of investigative reporting that unravels a tension-filled tale of murder, treachery, and abuse of power.” —Ronald Kessler, author of The Secrets of the FBI and In the President’s Secret Service

“Dennis Lehane and Martin Scorsese: take a seat. Nobody knows the twisted saga of Whitey Bulger and his gang; covered this story of criminal savagery and official corruption with more courage, or tell the tale now with such élan as Gerard O’Neill and Dick Lehr.” —John Farrell, author of Tip O’Neill and the Democratic Century

“So much has been written about Whitey Bulger, including by Lehr and O’Neill, but this book is different. It is comprehensive in its scope tracing Bulger’s family, his own journey from Southie, to Europe, from Leavenworth and finally, to the Princess Eugenia Apartment in Santa Monica, California. Lehr and O’Neill have culled material far and wide – transcripts, old prison records, official documents, interviews, books and clippings. But best of all, they’ve woven it all in a narrative that is extraordinary, compelling and impossible to put down.” —Nancy Gertner (Retired, U.S.District Court Judge) and author of In Defense of Women
