Biography

Howie Carr

Howie Carr is the author of two New York Times bestsellers, THE BROTHERS BULGER and HITMAN. Before Bulger fled in 1994, Carr was such an implacable foe of the serial killing gangster that Whitey tried to kill him as he left his house in suburban Boston --- an incident reported in 2006 on 60 Minutes. Whitey's younger brother, Billy Bulger, then the president of the Massachusetts State Senate, publicly referred to Carr as "the savage." Carr is also the host of a daily syndicated four-hour radio program heard throughout New England, and is a member of the national Radio Hall of Fame in Chicago. He won a National Magazine Award in 1985 for essays and criticism in Boston magazine.

Stevie "the Rifleman" Flemmi was, for forty years, one of the most feared gangsters in Boston, and for much of that time, he was the partner of Whitey Bulger, the sixteen-year fugitive with a $2 million reward on his head who was captured in 2011. Flemmi has been convicted of ten murders and took the Fifth Amendment when asked about ten others. His cohort, Bulger, is charged with nineteen more. Rifleman is the story of Flemmi's life of crime, as told to federal and state law enforcement after he pleaded guilty in 2003.
