Reviews

"[Shows] how fragile FBI integrity can be when the good guys lose sight of [the] truth, the rules, and the law."
--Washington Post Book World
"Bone-chilling . . . one of the best nonfiction reads of the year . . . a powerhouse of a book. Dick Lehr and Gerard O'Neill . . . write like veteran novelists, weaving scene after jaw-dropping scene into a tapestry of sickening American corruption."
--New York Post
"Black Mass should prompt a reevaluation of the uses and misuses of informers by law enforcement officials throughout the country."--New York Times Book Review


"[A] jaw-dropping, true-life tale of how two thugs corrupted the FBI."

--Baltimore Sun
