Synopsis

Black Mass Whitey Bulger, the FBI and a Devil's Deal by Dick Lehr, Gerard O'Neil

Boston 1975. Under a harvest moon, 'Whitey' Bulger, godfather of the Irish Mob, waits for an old school buddy. It has been a long time, and a lot has changed. Little John Connolly is now a high-ranking FBI agent. He is an agent in need of an informant - someone with a good view of Boston's dark side. He is an agent willing to be corrupted. An agent about to get played.

'A jaw-dropping, true-life tale of how two thugs corrupted the FBI' Baltimore Sun

'Black Mass should prompt a reevaluation of the uses and misuses of informers by law-enforcement officials throughout the country' New York Times Book Review

'A work of rare lucidity, high drama, journalistic integrity and plain courage' -- James Carroll, author of An American Requiem
