    In honor of Whitey's arrest, I'm going to start reading The Brothers Bulger by Howie Carr.

    LawMan, how did you like Signal Zero?

    I lent my copy to a professor at UMass-Lowell and never got it back, the bastard. I got an A in the course, so I guess I shouldn't bitch too much.

    If you want a great book about the Irish mob, then read The Westies. It is about the Irish Mob in Hells Kitchen during the 70's and early 80's. It is a great read. Brutal book.

    Black Mass is great, mine got moldy in the trunk of my car. Brothers Bulger and Hitman are both great. The also rans by Weeks, MacKenzie, Shea, and O'Neil are not so great but I like hearing multiple perspectives of a story. Then you can dig up a copy of Underboss about Anguilo.

    I Read Week's book "Brutal" It's an Ok read but the whole "we're not such bad guys" schtick gets old after the first chapter. He has an excuse for everything he and Whitey did.

    I am all for that. Why waste our hard earned money for new books when we can swap. I have many true crime and military books that I am eager to swap out for some good non-fiction books of the same. A request can be made for a book and then that person can name what books they have to swap for such request.

    Rawhide Down, by Del Quentin Wilber. It's about the attempted assassination of Ronald Reagan from the Secret Service perspective, including the guys who were actually there when he was shot and later in the emergency room. Excellent book, which I highly recommend.

    Lone Survivor is definately my next read. I also enjoy some fiction books, such as Black Order from James Rollins.

    I just ordered "The Sweeney - The First Sixty Years of Scotland Yard's Flying Squad" from England. Apparently not many, if any, carry this book over in the States. Everything I've heard says that this is a great book, and I'm hoping to enjoy it for vacation at the beach in July.

    I bet you had a couple of CJ professors who would benefit from reading it, I know I did.

    My last book without pictures was The Paradiso Files written by the infamous Timmy Burke.

    Amazon.com: The Paradiso Files: On the Trail of Boston's Unknown Serial Killer (9781586421496): Timothy M. Burke: Books

    I hear he has another in the works and i'm looking forward to reading it.

    I finished a book called Empire by Orson Scott Card. I picked it up for cheap and it was pretty good. It is about a spec ops military guy who is asked by the governent to develop a plan to assault the White House so that they wil know how to stop it. Well of course they use that info to actually assault the White House and frame him for it. The story revolves around him and a felow soldier trying to get to the bottom of the who is behind this plot. Very good and fast paced action.

    I am now reading Under the Dome by Stephen King. SO far its pretty good but its about 800 pages so it is gonna take awhile.

    I know it sounds like we are some dorks, but I have so many non fiction books that are just collecting dust. I will bring a whole box of them to the meet and greet. We can drink some cokes and then play a game of Dungeons and Dragons. No Dr. Peppers for me fellas. My mom says they make me break out with pimples.
