The Boston Mob Guide
The Boston Mob Guide: Hit Men, Hoodlums & Hideouts by Beverly Ford and Stephanie Schorow, published in December 2011 by The History Press, has struck a chord with New England readers fascinated with the history of Boston’s organized crime from the beginning of the last century to the recent capture of notorious mobster James “Whitey” Bulger. The History Press has also announced that The Boston Mob Guide is now available as an e-book through Amazon (on the Kindle), Barnes & Noble (on the Nook) and Apple's iBookstore (on the iPad).
“We have been amazed and flattered at the reaction to the book,” said Schorow. “At almost every one of our lectures, someone in the audience has a personal story to share about the impact of Boston’s gangsters on his or her life.”
"But it's no surprise to see so much interest in the darker side of Boston's history," added Ford. "The mobsters who were profiled in our book are as much a part of Boston history and lore as John Adams and Paul Revere."
