As reported in the Manchester Union Leader
MANCHESTER — While pursuing James “Whitey” Bulger for 20 years, Col. Thomas J. Foley was constantly frustrated by the number of people protecting the reputed Boston mobster — on both sides of the law.
“I couldn't believe how the good guys were bad guys,” said Foley.
Foley, the retired former head of the Massachusetts State Police and a criminology professor at Southern New Hampshire University in Manchester, has written a book about the two decades he spent trying to bring down Bulger and his criminal empire.
“Most Wanted: Pursuing Whitey Bulger, the Murderous Mob Chief the FBI Secretly Protected” will be released tomorrow, and chronicles Foley’s investigation of Bulger, his underlings and associates, and the structure of the Mafia and the Irish mob in the Boston area. Read Complete Union Leader Story.
