As the biggest criminal trial since the Boston Strangler draws nearer, the publica€™s fascination with the life and crimes of mob boss Whitey Bulger continues to heat up. Many stories have been told about the murders Whitey and Stephen a€œThe Riflemana€ Flemmi committed, and the tacit permission they received from the FBI. But never before has the story been told from the point of view of one of the victima€™s familiesa€”until now. Impact Statement is the first book to provide background into the family of a victim and their own compelling history and experiences, their decades-old fight for justice, the momentous victory over the US government, and their angry quest for the closure that Bulgera€™s trial may provide. Author Bob Halloran will have front-row access to the trial and the ensuing media blitz, as he observes the trial alongside Steven F. Davis, perhaps the most outspoken advocate for the victimsa€™ families. The murder of Davisa€™s sister, Debbie, is what keeps Flemmi jailed to this day, and remains the most horrific and arbitrary killing committed by Bulger and Flemmi. Steven Davisa€™s colorful commentary and reflective admissions of his own criminal past will reveal how he was once a protAcgAc of Flemmia€™s, and how the Davis familya€™s longstanding relationship with Flemmi cost them a father, two sisters, and a brother. Such is the devastating impact Bulger and Flemmia€™s violence had not only on their own families, but many others as well.A few weekslater, he wasalsoindicted forthe attempted murderof a lawyernamedJohn Fitzgerald onJanuary 30, 1968. a€œThebomb was placedunder the hoodof attorney Fitzgeralda#39;s car in Everett next to his office, a€ Flemmi would later explain.
