This is the inside, no-holds-barred story of the 2016 presidential election as told by a veteran journalist who was in the middle of it from day one – Boston talk-show host Howie Carr, whose radio network includes eight stations in New Hampshire, site of the nation’s first presidential primary every four years. In 2015, Donald Trump quickly became a regular on the show, and soon Howie was flying on Trump One, moderating the candidate’s town-hall meetings, introducing him at rallies and hanging out with the future POTUS in Palm Beach.
Howie has enjoyed a colorful career – the Mob in Boston once put out a murder contract on him, and Sen. Ted Kennedy tried to shut down his newspaper – but nothing had prepared him to cover the most amazing political campaign of modern times.
From Very Fake News to Lyin’ Ted to Crooked Hillary, “What Really Happened” will tell you just that – what really happened!
Are you listening, Hillary?

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.

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.
