"The capture of notorious mobster James “Whitey” Bulger closed an infamous chapter in Boston history. The city’s criminal underworld has a long record stretching back to the beginning of the twentieth century. Authors Beverly Ford and Stephanie Schorow unearth the underbelly of Boston through profiles of ruthless gangsters like Charles “King” Solomon, the Angiulo brothers, Joseph “The Animal” Barboza, Stephen “The Rifleman” Flemmi and many more. The authors take readers into the backrooms of seedy hangouts where deadly hits and lucrative heists were hatched. This guidebook is for anyone who has seen the movie The Departed and wants to know the real story of Boston’s
gangster past."
