Martin Scorsese's The Departed barely touched on his story. Now radio talk show sensation, crime reporter, and Boston Herald columnist Howie Carr takes us into the heart of the life of gangster Johnny Martorano in Hitman.
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 twenty mob murders―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.
Kennedy Babylon Vol. 1 begins the story of the Kennedy family's scandalous century in the public eye. Written by Howie Carr, the New York Times bestselling author of The Brothers Bulger and Hitman, Kennedy Babylon is a whirlwind tour of scandals from the days of the clan's rabidly anti-Semitic patriarch to the death of JFK Jr. The book includes scores of amazing photographs, many of which have not been published in decades.
Killers is a thrilling ride through the dark underbelly of Boston crime and politics that could only have been written by the man novelist James Ellroy calls “the Bacon-Banging Boston Bossman”-Howie Carr, the newspaper columnist on whom Whitey Bulger first put out a contract and then called as a defense witness during his 2013 murder trial in Boston.
Plug Uglies is a perfect addition to the library of any true-crime fan anywhere. Plug Uglies is the final installment in best-selling author Howie Carr s series about organized crime in Boston. In this book, Howie tells a number of previously untold stories about the famous FBI bugging of the Boston Mafia s headquarters, the merger of the Winter Hill Gang with the Mafia, and the Plymouth Mail Truck robbery. He also includes scores of never-before-seen photos, revealing the private lives of Mob serial killer Jimmy the Bear Flemmi and one of Johnny Martorano s long-forgotten victims.
With a $2 million reward on his head, James “Whitey” Bulger was the most-wanted fugitive in America for sixteen years when he was captured by the FBI in June 2011. Two years later, this Boston organized-crime boss went on trial in his hometown. In his latest book, Ratman: The Trial and Conviction of Whitey Bulger, New York Times bestselling author Howie Carr chronicles the trial of this notorious mob boss, who was charged with nineteen murders. Carr also shares accounts of a uniquely personal nature, including testimony from one of Bulger’s hit men, who Whitey ordered to kill Carr in the driveway of his home. Despite Bulger’s attempts to keep this Boston Herald columnist and radio talk-show host out of the courtroom by listing him as a defense witness, the judge allowed Carr to cover the trial, putting readers in the front row at one of the most entrancing murder trials in recent history.
Stevie “the Rifleman” Flemmi was, for forty years, one of the most feared gangsters in Boston, and for much of that time, he was the partner of Whitey Bulger, the sixteen-year fugitive with a $2 million reward on his head who was captured in 2011.
