The Untold Story of Johnny Martorano : Whitey Bulger's Enforcer and the Most Feared Gangster in the UnderworldUnknown - 2012
Crime reporter Howie Carr takes us into the heart of the life of Johnny Martorano. For two decades, Martorano struck fear into anyone even remotely connected to his world. His partnership with Whitey Bulger and the infamous Winter Hill Gang led to twentymurders--for which Johnny would serve twelve years in prison. Carr also looks at the politicians and FBI agents who aided Johnny and Whitey, and at the flamboyant city of Boston, which Martorano so ruthlessly ruled. A plethora of paradoxes, Johnny Martorano was Mr. Mom by day and man-about-town by night. Surrounded by fast-living politicians, sports celebrities, and showbiz entertainers, Johnny was charismatically colorful--as charming as he was frightening. After all, he was, in the end, a hitman. The paperback edition of Howie Carr's riveting true-crime story includes a new epilogue detailing Whitney Bulger's dramatic June 2011 capture. --From publisher description.
