The capture of a fugitive

A new book by Boston College alumnus Dave Wedge and co-author Casey Sherman tells the story of the capture and death of James “Whitey” Bulger, the notorious Boston mobster who was a fugitive for 16 years. Hunting Whitey: The Inside Story of the Capture & Killing of America’s Most Wanted Crime Boss (William Morrow/ HarperCollins, 2020) is based on exclusive interviews, and according to the publisher, tells the “thrilling, definitive story of the pursuit, capture, and killing” of Bulger, a convicted criminal and one-time FBI informant. More from publisher: “Interweaving the perspectives of Bulger, his family and cohorts, and law enforcement, Hunting Whitey explains how this dangerous criminal evaded capture for nearly two decades and shines a spotlight on the dedicated detectives, federal agents, and prosecutors involved in bringing him to justice.” Wedge and Sherman previously collaborated on The Ice Bucket Challenge: Pete Frates and the Fight against ALS, 12: The Inside Story of Tom Brady’s Fight for Redemption, and Boston Strong: A City’s Triumph over Tragedy.
