Gangland Boston: A Tour Through the Deadly Streets of Organized Crime

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Emily Sweeney

Narrated By: Kate Zane

Date: October 2020

Duration: 5 hours 54 minutes

Summary:

A guided tour of Boston's underworld, revealing the places where deals were made, people were killed, and bodies were buried.

Gangsters have played a shady role in shaping Greater Boston's history. While lurking in local restaurants or just around the corner inside that inconspicuous building, countless criminals have quietly made their mark on the city and surrounding communities. Gangland Boston reveals the hidden history of these places, bringing listeners back in time to when the North End was wrought with gun violence, Hanover Street was known as a 'shooting gallery,' and guys named King Solomon, Beano Breen, and Mickey the Wiseguy ruled the underworld.

Drawing upon years of research and an extensive collection of rare photographs, author Emily Sweeney sheds light on how gang violence unfolded during Prohibition, how the Italian mafia rose to power, and how the Gustin Gang came to be. She also uncovers little-known facts about well-known crime figures (Did you know the leader of the Gustin Gang was an Olympic athlete? Or that a fellowship at a major university was named after a big-time bookie?)
