Review: The Boston Mob Guide

January 2012 Contents
Book Review
By Thomas Hunt

A quick-moving tour of
Boston's underworld history

"Inspired by the capture of longtime fugitive racketeer James "Whitey" Bulger, authors Beverly Ford and Stephanie Schorow have assembled a quick-moving 160-page book that puts Bulger into his historic and geographic context. In addition to Bulger and his underworld cronies in the infamous Winter Hill Gang, the authors examine the major players and events in the New England Mafia, as well as various Irish mobs, Jewish crime figures and some other shady characters who have called the Boston region their home."
