Patrick does a good job of explaining his life of crime, as well as his work with the IRA. Lots of name dropping and places in South Boston. ( )

I grew up in Southie. I used to babysit in this guy's house. The next year he was arrested for shipping over $1 million in arms to the IRA.

I have read most of the books on "Whitey" Bulger and his associates(Brutal,Rat Bastards, Black Mass, Street Enforcer) and had heard Patrick Nee mentioned here and there. I finally got a hold of this book and found it a refreshing read.

Although it is a short book it is filled with plenty of stories and even a small history on the Troubles in Ireland. Nee makes no apologies for being a criminal without being a braggart(for the most part). He fills us in on Whitey but without taking away from his own story, the arc of which is the Valhalla ship and the weapons it was bringing to the IRA. I found the story of one of his earlier robberies especially entertaining.

I would recommend this book for anyone interested in the Whitey Mob of Southie, or anyone who likes to read true crime. ( )
