Radio talk show sensation, crime reporter, and Boston Herald columnist, Howie Carr, takes us into the heart of the life of Johnny Martorano. For two decades Martorano struck fear into anyone remotely connected to his world. His partnership with Whitey Bulger and the infamous Winter Hill Gang led to twenty murders for which Johnny would serve only 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 they so ruthlessly ruled. But most of all, Carr depicts Johnny—a plethora of paradoxes, he was Mr. Mum by day and man-about-town by night. Johnny was charismatically colourful—as charming as he was frightening. After all, he was in the end…a hit man.
