Black Mass by Dick Lehr & Gerard O'Neill

One FBI agent

One Boston gangster

One deal

The most chilling tale of corruption ever told

James 'Whitey' Bulger and John Connolly grew up together on the tough streets of South Boston. Decades later in the mid-1970's, they met again. By then, Connolly was a major figure in the FBI's Boston office and Whitey had become godfather of the Irish Mob.

Connolly had an idea, a scheme that might bring Bulger into the FBI fold. But Bulger had other plans.

Black Mass is the chilling true story of what happened between them - a dark deal that spiralled out of control against a backdrop of drug dealing, racketeering and murder.

From award-winning journalistic pair Dick Leher and Gerard O'Neill comes a true-crime classic that takes the reader deep undercover, exposing one of the most outrageous scandals in FBI history.
