After sixteen years on the
lam, infamous Boston gangster Whitey Bulger was finally captured and brought to
trial—and what a trial it was: evidence of nineteen gruesome murders, government
secrets, FBI corruption, a dead witness, and an unbelievable tale of love.
Whitey’s machine guns and gangland-style extortions gripped the city of Boston
Investigative journalist Jon
Leiberman traveled the world with the FBI’s Whitey Bulger task force. Former
Boston area prosecutor and legal analyst Margaret McLean witnessed every day of
testimony, heard every word uttered in court. Both authors have developed close
relationships with the investigators, the lawyers, and Whitey’s friends, his
fellow mobsters, his victims and their families.
In Whitey on Trial,
the truth is revealed through trial testimony, interviews with cops, FBI
agents, prosecutors and defense attorneys, and members of the jury that
ultimately found Bulger guilty on thirty-one counts, including eleven murders.
An exclusive letter from Whitey to McLean offers insight into his state of mind
immediately following the verdict.
