Summary

''Gennaro J. ''Jerry'' Angiulo returned home to Boston from service in the Navy in 1947 to drive a delivery truck - and to relentlessly climb the rungs of local organized crime. By 1961 Angiulo and his four brothers were running the Boston Mafia and, by extension, much of the criminal activity in New England with a ruthless, and enormously profitable, efficiency.'' ''Three decades later, in 1981, FBI agents entered the Angiulo stronghold in Boston's North End and planted a bug that soon led to cracks in the walls of the house of Angiulo. By successfully prosecuting Angiulo under newly created anti-racketeering laws, the federal government set a precedent that would be followed throughout the 1980s in a series of prominent Mafia busts. The February 1986 conviction of Angiulo became an object lesson in how to take down the modern Mafia.'' ''Unfortunately, some of these same FBI agents were deep in the pocket of the Irish Mob's Whitey Bulger, as chronicled in O'Neill and Lehr's Black Mass. These agents did a remarkable job of taking apart one criminal organization, to the delight and benefit of another. This new and updated version of The Underboss reflects what has been learned since Angiulo's conviction.''--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
