Bargain Book Copy
Most Wanted is the riveting account of former head of Massachusetts state police Thomas J. Foley's twenty-year pursuit of murderous Boston gangster Whitey Bulger - and of Foley's key role in exposing the FBI's protection of Bulger's criminal empire.
This is a true-life thriller, and Tom Foley is the hero at its center. His investigative efforts resulted in criminal convictions of a half-dozen of Boston's most notorious thugs and also led to the conviction of John Connolly, one of the FBI agents who abetted Bulger; Connolly is serving a forty-year prison sentence and Bulger is now finally in custody after spending sixteen years on the FBI's Most Wanted list. It is known that Bulger was a secret informant for the FBI, but it has never been revealed - until now - that the FBI was actually actively protecting Bulger from Foley, effectively derailing Foley's efforts to stop Bulger's horrific crime sprees time and again. In this book, Foley, a cop's cop, honestly recounts how his wide-eyed admiration for the nation's top law enforcement agency was gradually transformed by dark realities he didn't want to believe.
