About this item

Killers is a thrilling ride through the dark underbelly of Boston crime and politics that could only have been written by Howie Carr. At one point the infamous Whitey Bulger put out a contract Carr, a newspaper columnist... and later called him a defense witness during Bulger’s 2013 murder trial.

Now in jail, Whitey Bulger is gone from Boston, but Bench McCarthy is here to take his place.

McCarthy is a thug’s thug, a hitman, an underworld jack-of-all-trades. He runs his own mob out of Winter Hill in Somerville while handling “wet work” for Sally Curto, a half-demented mob boss.

After years of gangland peace, Bench and Curto find themselves clay pigeons for unknown hit crews coming at them from every direction. The motives are as murky as the hitmen themselves, but all roads seem to lead to the State House, where corrupt pols are battling over a bill to legalize new casinos that will generate billions in revenue.

To stay alive and put an end to the uprising, Bench must enlist the help of Jack Reilly, a dodgy ex-cop turned private investigator. Bench doesn’t trust Reilly since they started out on opposite sides of the law, but when the hunter becomes the hunted, he’s left with few options.
