Review quote

"Whitey on Trial, cinematic in scope and presentation, brings to life the intense and complex experiences of the 'stage and battleground' of criminal prosecution. I was hooked from the opening paragraphs. If you read the headlines and think you understood this case, think again. This is a must-read." --Dr. Drew Pinsky, host of Dr. Drew on Call, Loveline, and Celebrity Rehab

"Leiberman helped me hunt Whitey for years with passion for all of his victims. This book is truly an inside and compelling view of a legendary trial. McLean and Leiberman have written a must-read for true crime lovers." --John Walsh, creator and host of America's Most Wanted

"Jon Leiberman is one of America's top investigative journalists. He and Margaret McLean have formed an incredible team--relentlessly searching for the truth in this case. You will be stunned by what they've learned. A can't-put-it-down real life thriller." --Jane Velez-Mitchell, HLN Host

"For a quarter century, Whitey Bulger terrorized the city of Boston and corrupted even the FBI agents charged with bringing him down. In this meticulous, day-by-day account of Whitey's final reckoning, Margaret McLean and Jon Leiberman vividly capture the drama of a major criminal trial and the downfall of one of America's most notorious gangsters. Like the best true-crime writing, it reads like fiction. Utterly riveting." --William Landay, New York Times bestselling author of Defending Jacob
