The Jack Nicholson film The Departed didn't tell half of their story. A poor kid from the slums, Robert Fitzpatrick grew up to become a stellar FBI agent and challenge the country's deadliest gangsters. Relentless in his desire to catch, prosecute, and convict Whitey Bulger, Fitzpatrick fought the nation's most determined cop-gangster battle since Melvin Purvis hunted, confronted, and killed John Dillinger.
In his crusade to bring Bulger to justice, Fitzpatrick faced not only Whitey but also corrupt FBI agents, along with political cronies and enablers from Boston to Washington who, in one way or another, blocked his efforts at every step. Even when Fitzpatrick discovered the very organization to which he had sworn allegiance was his biggest obstacle, the agent continued to pursue Whitey and his gang . . . knowing that they were prepared to murder anyone who got in their way.

I bought this book on a Sunday and finished it the following Thursday......I simply couldn't put it down! It's both amazing and disheartening to learn what REALLY happened behind the scenes. Mr. Fitpatrick is a stand-up guy who, from the moment he was transferred to the FBI office in Boston, tried and tried to do the right thing and see to it that Whitey Bulger was treated like the criminal he was. Mr. Fitzpatrick just didn't know at the time that almost everyone around him was a Whitey Bulger cohort to one degree or another. This is a great book and I highly recommend it.
