VIRTUAL TALK: “Hunting Whitey” with Casey Sherman
June 9 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFREE
The Inside Story of the Capture & Killing of America’s Most Wanted Crime Boss
The wait is over. Boston reporters Casey Sherman and Dave Wedge deliver again—this time the definitive story of the legendary South Boston mob boss—and longtime FBI informant–James “Whitey” Bulger. The leader of Boston’s Winter Hill Gang was #1 on the FBI’s Most Wanted list. He was indicted for nineteen counts of murder, racketeering, narcotics distribution, and extortion. But it was his sixteen-year flight from justice on the eve of his arrest that made him a legend and exposed deep corruption within the FBI. While other accounts have examined Bulger’s crimes, this remarkable chronicle tells the story of his life on the run, his capture, and his brutal murder inside “Misery Mountain,” one of America’s most dangerous prisons, less than twenty-four hours after his arrival in 2018. With access to exclusive prison letters and interviews with dozens of people connected to the case on both sides, Sherman and Wedge deliver a pulse-pounding portrait of one of the most infamous criminals in American history.
“…Hunting Whitey kept me up all night. Casey Sherman and Dave Wedge are masters of the craft; their reportage is exceptional, and the narrative moves like a bullet train. I’ve been reading about Whitey Bulger my whole life and most of this was brand new to me. Truly compelling!”–Ben Mezrich, New York Times bestselling author of “Bringing Down The House” and “Bitcoin Billionaires”
