The New York Times bestselling author of The Westies and Paddy WhackedT.J. English joins IAC to share an intimate view of the world of organized crime and law enforcement with his new book Where the Bodies Were Buried: Whitey Bulger and the World That Made Him.
T.J. English is the greatest chronicler of the Irish mob in America, and covered Whitey Bulger’s 2015 trial at close range—by day in the courtroom, but also, on nights and weekends, interviewing Bulger’s associates as well as lawyers, former federal agents, and even members of the jury in the backyards and barrooms of Whitey’s world. As complex, harrowing, and human as a Scorsese film, Where the Bodies Were Buried offers a startlingly revisionist account of Bulger’s story—and of the decades-long culture of collusion between the Feds and the Irish and Italian mob factions that have ruled New England since the 1970s, when a fateful deal left the FBI fatally compromised.
T.J. English is the New York Times bestselling author of Havana Nocturne, Paddy Whacked, The Westies, and Born to Kill, which was nominated for an Edgar Award. His screenwriting credits include TV episodes of NYPD Blue and Homicide, for which he was awarded the Humanitas Prize. He lives in New York City
