I asked Dick Lehr to predict the outcome of the Bulger trial.

“I don’t think he’ll ever see the light of day. He’s stuck behind bars for however much time he has remaining,” Mr. Lehr replied. “I can’t imagine a jury, despite the best and very creative efforts of a very able defense attorney, coming up with any verdict other than guilty.”

“Whitey” is well researched, well documented and well written. Mr. Lehr and Mr. O’Neill offer a comprehensive look at Whitey Bulger as man, mobster and monster.

Paul Davis is a writer who covers crime.
