Legends of Winter Hill PDF

Jay Atkinson

At McCain Investigations, Id be sent looking for people who didnt want to be found, following guys who didnt want to be followed, and entering neighborhoods where I was not at all welcome. There would be no commercials, no time-outs, no do-overs if somebody got shot or stabbed or run over. These guys were playing for keeps.”

Seasoned journalist and adventurer Jay Atkinson spent a year working as a rookie private eye for the storied firm McCain Investigations, founded by the late Joe McCain, Sr., one of the most decorated police officers in Boston history. In his colorful narrative style, Atkinson describes some of the cases he worked as a detective, chasing down an assortment of felons, thieves, and con artists, as well as the ghost of a real-life American hero, legendary cop Joe McCain.

Atkinson traces McCains story from the day he put on his Boston Metropolitan Police uniform in the 1950s through the heyday of his run-ins with mafiosi, bad cops, and ruthless killers. Big Joe was the genuine article, a detective so committed to his work that a gunshot wound suffered in the line of duty took thirteen years to kill him. McCain pursued such infamous Winter Hill mobsters as Stephen the Rifleman” Flemmi and the murderous James Whitey” Bulger, who remains on the FBIs Ten Most Wanted list. Here Atkinson reveals new details—based on his exclusive interviews and an abundance of his own shoe leather—about how Bulger, one of Americas most notorious fugitives, came within inches of being apprehended during Joe McCains reign.

Atkinson also tracks the career of Joe McCains son, Joe Jr., a tattooed, hard-riding motorcycle fanatic who followed his old man onto the force. Since big Joes death, young Joe has learned the hard way that a fathers mythic persona can be both a blessing and a curse, as a fellow cop with a grudge against Joe Sr. may be out to ruin young Joes career. Atkinson delves into this dark and dangerous aspect of the job,” where its uncertain which side some cops are on.

Legends of Winter Hill takes you into an alluring and gritty world where heroes go unsung every day, and moral boundaries arent always black and white.
