ONBC's Next Book

Unread postby Liz » Sat Mar 29, 2014 12:14 am

All you compares, babbos, buttons, earners, empty suits, enforcers, fences, shylocks, skippers, Young Turks, Zips, dirty rats, meat eaters, snitches, stand-up guys, hang-around guys, wise guys and friends of ours out there, better listen up, ya hear? The Commission (me and Firefly) has made an organizational decision on ONBC’s next book selection……

Black Mass by Dick Lehr and Gerard O’Neill

Whitey

We insist that you be our guest beginning June 16 at ONBC, where we will provide lots of background on Whitey Bulger and his cronies.

And make sure you get the most recent edition. BUT note that there are spoilers in the 2nd introduction on pg. XIX.

You can't judge a book by its cover.

The only thing that matters is the ending. It's the most important part of the story.

Glad you guys are coming along with us. We promise a good ride, many good stories and lots of insight. The tantalizing allure of tidbits waiting to be unearthed calls to me.

I hope I ordered the right edition. :perplexed: The kindle edition has the same picture as the one Liz showed, but the only print books I saw in that link had a different cover and publication date.

I've already read the book around the first time the movie was announced. Fascinating story and a very good choice for ONBC. :hatsoff:

Should be the 2012 edition.
