Publisher Description

The riveting New York Times bestseller by award-winning columnist Howie Carr--now with a stunning new afterword detailing Whitey Bulger's capture.

For years their familiar story was of two siblings who took different paths out of South Boston: William "Billy" Bulger, former president of the Massachusetts State Senate; and his brother James "Whitey" Bulger, a vicious criminal who became the FBI's second most-wanted man after Osama Bin Laden. While Billy cavorted with the state's blue bloods to become a powerful political force, Whitey blazed a murderous trail to the top rung of organized crime. Now, in this compelling narrative, Carr uncovers a sinister world of FBI turncoats, alliances between various branches of organized crime, St. Patrick's Day shenanigans, political infighting, and the complex relationship between two brothers who were at one time kings.

As the film Black Mass, starring Johnny Depp as Whitey Bulger, hits theaters, take a deeper dive into the story of the Bulgers, and their fifty-year reign over Boston with Howie Carr's THE BROTHERS BULGER.

The Brothers Bulger

What a great book! I couldn't put it down, which is good for me as I'm not an avid reader.

I Read It in Hardcover

Carr does a great job sticking it to Billy “The Corrupt Midget” Bulger. Whitey and his crimes speak for themselves.

Logically fun!!! ,

Authors opinion and bias clear facts too dense

If every word of this is true and more the facts are blurred by the authors bias against Yankees liberals and dozens of other things

The book reads long because facts names nick names new names real names etc blur into what feels like a raging rant

Mafia vs Gangs? Why are they all not called organized crimes.
