For sixteen years Whitey Bulger walked as a free man. He was considered one of the most dangerous men in America for a span of years. He ruled the area where he lived and brooked no opposition. Wherever he went, he left a trail of blood and tears. He was finally captured with his girlfriend and is now safely incarcerated.

To read of his life of crime is very depressing. I am not nave, but it is so hard to believe someone could be as cruel as he was. Those he surrounded himself with were no better than he was. Bulger held his intimates in fear of his wrath. What his ultimate goal was if he had one I'm not so sure.

This is a tough book to read. I had to keep reminding myself that Where the Bodies Are Buried is a true crime story. Were it fiction, it would read as unbelievable. So don't say you weren't warned.
