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. June 23, 2011. The news of the notorious gangster Whitey Bulger’s capture—after sixteen years on the FBI’s Most Wanted list—swept the nation. 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. June 23, 2011. The news of the notorious gangster Whitey Bulger’s capture—after sixteen years on the FBI’s Most Wanted list—swept the nation. Many breathed a sigh of relief. But for Thomas J. Foley, a former Massachusetts state police colonel and the investigator who sparked Bulger’s flight from Boston, the moment was bittersweet. The FBI may have caught Bulger, but as Foley had painfully discovered almost two decades before, they were also responsible for his escape. It has been known that Whitey 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. At one point, the FBI even presented Foley with a plaque at a holiday party that read “the Most Hated Man in Law Enforcement,” a not-so-subtle suggestion that he and his team should lay off their investigation. Most Wanted is a true-life thriller, and 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 now serving a forty-year prison sentence. 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.

    I must admit that I have never hear of Whitey Bulger until I read this book. This is probably a good thing. This means that one I don't keep up with the FBI's Most Wanted List and two that I have never had a run in with Mr. Bulger. After reading this book, it will change your mind about the FBI. I know it did for me.

After reading this book, it will change your mind about the FBI. I know it did for me. I mean I know the FBI has their secrets and some of them probably not good and we the public might not want to know about it but after hearing what they did to Mr. Foley, I was upset. Mr. Foley was the hero in this story. He stuck to his guns and it was like he was not only fighting to take down Bulger but also stop the other bad guys...FBI. Only Mr. Foley did not learn that they were the bad guys until later. I liked that I got to know who Mr. Foley was and how he advanced in his career. Usually I don't care of this in a nonfiction novel unless the book is about the author, who is writing it. Then I just want to know about the person featured in the story. Getting to know Mr. Foley was as much as part of the story as to how Mr. Foley helped to bring Bulger to justice. Bulger was also a very smart man. He knew what he was doing and how to play the game of war. He studied all the combat moves including his opponents. This is what made him dangerous and why he eventually lead to becoming suspect number one on the FBI's Most Wanted List. While, I did enjoy this book as it felt like Mr. Foley did not leave anything out. I did skim the book a few times to make it move faster. Although, if you like reading true crime novels that do have a happy ending, then you should check out this book. This is a book that the FBI probably does not want you to read as you can imagine why.

    This was difficult to get through. Not because it was dull, or poorly written, but because of the gritty rawness that Foley brings to the story.

I heard Foley speak at the Boston Public Library, and I met him briefly when he signed my book. He is an amazing example of law enforcement, who gives me hope where the failings of the federal government do not. He was modest and kind, and it is clear that he was born to serve and protect. I realize that there are two sides to every story though, and I wish I could understand the perspective of a "clean" (did that exist?) FBI officer during this time period. I've also read Johnny Martorano's "Hitman" and I think that it offers an important and different point of view. These two books together provide personal insight from both sides of the law, and a better understanding of organized crime in Boston during the 70s-90s.

    This is the story of the search for one of America's most wanted men, Whitey Bulger. He was a mobster and killer. Thomas J. Foley of the Mass. St. Police personally led the search to put him in jail. In the early years of the search, there are conflicts between the State Police and the FBI who want to get other crime bosses and leave Bulger alone.

This interference was blatant and at one point while Foley's team was running a surveillance, two FBI agents parked their car directly across the street so the mobsters would know they were being watched. Eventually the interference became too much and Foley returned to patrol duties. However, his good work had been noted by his superiors and Foley was asked to return to command the Special Services Section (SSS) for the State Police. He was the hero who continued the search and finally brought closure to some of the families of Bulger's victims.

    I’d read a couple of different books about Whitey Bulger. I find the whole story of The Bulgers and the FBI covering up his acts fascinating, especially as one of the agents grew up around the Bulgers and looked up to Whitey as a kid. I lived in Boston during the time The FBI took down the Boston branch of the Mafia, and there was a lot of mystery around where was Whitey. I’d read elsewhere the Massachusetts State Police were the ones who pursued him. This book was written by the primary state pol I’d read a couple of different books about Whitey Bulger.

This book is better written than most such books, but probably is more for someone like me who had already read other books about Whitey.

    It took a little bit for me to get into this book (I tend to always find beginnings of books slow going), but I am so glad that I continued because there were many instances that gave me chills. I know Tom, and you would never know the type of stuff that he had to deal with based on how humble he is. Being from Massachusetts, this was an interesting read for me and one that I would recommend to anyone that has any interest in Boston, law-enforcement, or good stories.

Foley and John Sedgwick in their new book, “Most Wanted” published by Touchstone takes us on the true case Pursuing Whitey Bulger, the Murderous Mob Chief the FBI Secretly Protected. From the back cover: When Whitey was captured, and flown back to Boston, he was the talk of the city, and much of the country, too. But it wasn’t for another month that I laid eyes on him myself. He was just a wisp of a guy shuffling around, his rough voice all that was left of the vitality that had once terrified an entire city. Just seeing how old Whitey was as he sat, his shoulders curved, on that chair—it reminded me of how long he’d been gone, and I remembered why he hadn’t been rotting in prison as he deserved. Why someone like Whitey Bulger had been able to stay in business for so long, killing, extorting, dealing drugs, terrorizing. How could it still fester, wrecking more lives, like those of the families of the victims sitting around me? I was pleased to see him captured, no question. But what kept coming back as I looked at this old man was the cold fury that had so often surged through me on this case. From the inside jacket flap: June 23, 2011. The news of the notorious gangster Whitey Bulger’s capture—after sixteen years on the FBI’s Most Wanted list—swept the nation. Many breathed a sigh of relief. But for Thomas J. Foley, a former Massachusetts state police colonel and the investigator who sparked Bulger’s flight from Boston, the moment was bittersweet.

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 now serving a forty-year prison sentence. 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. There is a particular movie where the hero is at the top of one hill and the villain is at the top of a distant hill and the two of them face each other which let you know these two would battle throughout the movie. It was quite exciting. This is the same feeling I get when reading “Most Wanted” and what is even better is that this is a true story with Thomas J. Foley against Whitey Bulger. Get ready for a page-turning, thrill ride. I am a fan of the fiction books where the FBI hero is after a serial killer and all the dips and turns those cases take us on. While those books are exciting “Most Wanted” is even better as these events actually occurred. Colonel Foley was in a twenty year pursuit of Whitey Bulger simply because certain individuals within the FBI were tipping Mr. Bulger off of the pursuit. So “Most Wanted” becomes a two-way chase as Col. Foley continues after Bulger but also has to pursue who it is in the FBI that is after him and informing against him. Misters Foley and Sedgwick get us caught up in the story as they propel us along at a brisk clip in this true investigation. They show us what one man of integrity and honesty can do when even the system is operating against you. If you like true life police procedurals then this is the story for you.

    The author, Thomas Foley, the former head of the Massachusetts State Police, was also the commander of the SSS (Special Services Section) and was in charge of bringing Bulger and his right-hand man, Steve Flemmi, to justice. He recounts the attempts in the 80s to get Bulger (before Foley was in command), with sweeping ideas of bugging every home, car and restaurant where members of the gang were known to hang out.

He recounts the attempts in the 80s to get Bulger (before Foley was in command), with sweeping ideas of bugging every home, car and restaurant where members of the gang were known to hang out. Unfortunately, Bulger was always one step ahead and bugs were removed faster than they were placed in hiding spots. In the 90s, with Foley in charge, the focus of the investigation was changed and attention was turned first to the lowly bookies; get them, surmised Foley, and they’d be able to go up the chain of command in the Winter Hill Gang. The author provides a fascinating look into how they went about getting various members, and how those members were convinced to testify (and why some refused). Foley suspected early on that there was something going on with the FBI, and when his suspicions were proven, we see what the author had to deal with to keep his case alive. He was stymied almost every step of the way by the FBI, and particularly by John Connolly, Bulger’s FBI contact. Many men would give up and walk away but Foley was tireless, in part no doubt, because the victims’ families were desperate for help. Through testimony from Bulger’s accomplices, the reader will learn just what happened to many of the crime boss’s victims, how he liked to do the killings himself, and what was done with the bodies. Considered by some in South Boston as a sort of Robin Hood, this book brings to light the absolutely horrific, disgusting man Whitey Bulger was, and no doubt, still is today. Thanks to Foley’s efforts, he will finally be brought to justice when his trial starts later this year. Hopefully it will also bring some semblance of peace to those who suffered at Bulger’s hands.

    This book by Thomas Foley,a former Massachusetts Police Colonel who spent years pursuing Boston Irish mob chieftan James "Whitey" Bulger, is more memoir than police procedural.

Foley comes off as a dedicated public servant and a decent guy, albeit one with a massive axe to grind against the Federal Bureau of Investigation. However, based on the objective record -- an FBI informant (Bulger) evading law enforcement for decades, an FBI agent (John Connolly) convicted for second-degree murder in an early 80s mob hit, a prominent Massachusetts politician (Whitey's brother Billy)clamming up during a congressional hearing -- Foley has every reason to resent America's most prominent law enforcement agency. Foley's (and his collaborator's) writing style is what critics call "brisk," which is code for informal bordering on conversational. There are plenty of cliches and sentence fragments, which is fine, a more literary style would have come off as inauthentic, and Foley needs authenticity since his book argues that the culture of the FBI is corrupt, and this corruption has seeped into the rest of the US Justice Department. If half of what Foley says about the Bulger case is accurate (I'm not saying he's dishonest, I'm just saying he's not objective), then yes, the FBI needs to be reorganized, if not dissolved. However, Foley weakens his authority when he makes blanket summaries of other FBI controversies, like Ruby Ridge and Waco, with which he has no first-hand experience. The Bulger case is complex, disturbing and fascinating, and deserves a thorough and exhaustive account. "Most Wanted" isn't it, but Foley's version of events should be heard.

    Wow! Most Wanted is a relentless, page-turning read written by Thomas J. Foley, the man who spent most of his life pursuing the gangster, Whitey Bulger. Not only did Whitey become an FBI informant, and committed nineteen crimes while being protected, but the FBI thwarted Foley every time he got close to capturing the murderer. There are personal true accounts of Foley's investigations, how he decided to pursue his investigation and his accounts with the family and friends of Bulger's victims. Bul Wow!

He was finally apprehended by Foley last year and will start trial later this year.

In this case, author Foley exposes the fact that in their haste to protect Bulger and his associates, the FBI handlers seriously hindered the parallel state investigation and allowed these mobsters to continue their criminal enterprises up to and including commission of several murders while under watch. This is a fascinating book for those who enjoy police procedurals, Irish mob history and true crime.

The first half of this book is a really interesting procedural and psychological study, exposing the decidedly unglamorous and indeed sickening aspects of organized crime and the hurdles that law enforcement has to go through in their pursuit of even well-known dangerous criminals. The inter-agency and political tensions here are intriguing. The often-overlooked role of women investigators is, too. However, toward the end of the book I got bogged down in a sort of Biblical litany of bad guys whom I couldn't keep straight (no pun intended). Ultimately, I didn't finish this book--but, fortunately, they booked Whitey so I don't feel the need to pick it up again.

    Even after all that's been written about Bulger & Flemmi, I still didn't realize that the original indictments that Bulger fled from were developed by the State Police, as was the evidence from Kevin Weeks that led to Bulger being charged with murder. This book is an appalling indictment of the FBI, which as an organization did their best to stymie the State Police investigation. It's also a testimonial to the state police who persevered in spite of the FBI.

It's also a testimonial to the state police who persevered in spite of the FBI. The author doesn't hold out much hope that the FBI has learned anything, or that there is much possibility that it will change. The FBI seems to excel only at generating favorable PR for itself regardless of the facts.

    This is real life account of the hunt and capture of murderer and gangster Whitey Bulger. Although on the FBI’s most wanted list, it was Massachusetts state policeman Thomas J. Foley and his task force’s commitment and many hours that finally led to many indictments. Not only does this show the ruthlessness of Bulger’s killings, the painstaking man hours of dedication, it also shows corruption within the FBI and the many obstacles encountered through inter-agency cooperation or lack thereof.

    Picked this up because I was on a gangster kick,and I happen to share my name with Whitey Bulger's girlfriend and have been stopped in airports in the past because of this (even though she is a good 50 years older than I am). It's a good look into more modern day mob life in the Boston area. Decent read if you are interested in the topic and can stomach the gore that comes with reading true crime stories.

    This is an expose of the shenanigans at the FBI and the lengths they go to protect their informants no matter how slimy they are or how many people they kill. It was well written and the author made no bones regarding his contempt for the FBI. It's no wonder our national and international protections agencies can not fully be trusted.
