If you’ve been fascinated by the breaking story of the arrest of long-time Most Wanted fugitive,  now 81 year-old Whitey Bulger, don’t miss our recent post by Howie Carr, Boston Herald journalist and chronicler of this crook, about pursuing Whitey, his brother Billy, and the Winter Hill gang.  You’ll read what legendary former prosecutor-turned-novelist George V. Higgins predicted about these “Friends of Eddie Coyle,” decades ago, that turned out to be even better than true.

For even more about Whitey and his murderous partner, Johnny Marturano, read this true crime excerpt from Howie Carr’s Hitman.
