Not everyone is deserving of the nickname he or she receives, but for Boston mafioso Joseph Barboza, “The Animal” was quite apt. Linked to the murders of over 30 people, some for business and some for fun, Barboza was only one member of a fearsome mafia that terrorized people up and down the East Coast.
The mob would go on to find itself in the halls of Congress in Washington D.C., with governors and mayors joining arms with the organization. From the tragic legacy of the Kennedy family, to the Winter Hill-Charlestown feud, this true crime tale discusses the rise and fall of the New England Mafia.
