Mobsters. Corruption. The Winter Hill Gang. Informants. The life of a Boston Cop. Frank DeSario offers a vivid account of his forty-year career in the Boston Police Department. From true stories of the Mafia and gangland slayings, to bussing, race riots, thugs and corruption, Frank reveals what it was like to have a ringside seat at events that made history; the TPF, the Boston Busing Crisis, Barboza and Whitey Bulger. Along the way, he also touches on the more glamorous side of the job--including acting as the trusted protector and escort to celebrities, religious and political leaders, and other high-profile visitors to the city of Boston: The Pope, Miss Shirley McLaine and Tony DeMarco. Engrossing and revealing from the first page to the last, here is a real-world look at life on the beat and behind the badge.
