✏Most Wanted Book Summary : Most Wanted is the riveting account of former head of Massachusetts state police Thomas J. Foley's twenty-year pursuit of murderous Boston gangster Whitey Bulger— and of Foley's key role in exposing the FBI's protection of Bulger's criminal empire. This is a true-life thriller, and Tom Foley is the hero at its center. His investigative efforts resulted in criminal convictions of a half-dozen of Boston's most notorious thugs and also led to the conviction of John Connolly, one of the FBI agents who abetted Bulger; Connolly is serving a forty-year prison sentence and Bulger is now finally in custody after spending sixteen years on the FBI's Most Wanted list. It is known that Bulger was a secret informant for the FBI, but it has never been revealed—until now—that the FBI was actually actively protecting Bulger from Foley, effectively derailing Foley's efforts to stop Bulger's horrific crime sprees time and again. In this book, Foley, a cop's cop, honestly recounts how his wide-eyed admiration for the nation's top law enforcement agency was gradually transformed by dark realities he didn't want to believe.
