Bulger Book Event — Books On The Square

Betrayal (1.5) Providence writer Jon Land and FBI agent Robert Fitzpatrick will be at Books on the Square this Thursday to promote their book Betrayal: Whitey Bulger and the FBI Agent Who Fought To Bring Him Down.

Robert Fitzpatrick spent twenty-plus years as an FBI agent and chief in a career highlighted by his involvement in the Martin Luther King, Jr. killing (recovering the rifle that ultimately led to the arrest of James Earl Ray), the ABSCAM investigation in Miami, as well as the famed “Mississippi Burning” investigation.

In his crusade to bring Bulger to justice, Fitzpatrick faced not only Whitey but also corrupt FBI agents, along with political cronies and enablers from Boston to Washington who, in one way or another, blocked his efforts at every step. Even when Fitzpatrick discovered the very organization to which he had sworn allegiance was his biggest obstacle, the agent continued to pursue Whitey and his gang.

7pm, Thursday, January 5, Books on the Square, 471 Angell Street, 401.331.9097
