And BETRAYAL: Whitey Bulger and the FBI Agent who Fought to Bring Him Down is a hit with the critics! Since this was my first ever work of nonfiction, I had absolutely no idea what to expect. It was a learning experience for me from the beginning, not an easy process at all but very well worth it as you can see below.

The Associated Press says,

“Retired FBI agent Robert Fitzpatrick does a fantastic job of juggling the names and facts while telling his compelling story of trying to bring Boston mob boss James “Whitey” Bulger to justice.”

From the Boston Globe:

“Betryal is a mind-blowing, punch-in-the-face insider account of everything that can go wrong when police get too cozy with criminals. . . . A contender for one of the most disturbing books you’ll ever read about law enforcement.”

The Providence Journal adds,

“a masterful job of recounting all of the behind-the-scene mechanizations.”

The Huffington Post says,

“Fitzpatrick’s story is a page-turner that reads like a novel that’s nearly impossible to put down.”

Fellow bestselling author Doug Preston proclaims,

“Betrayal is a staggering story of murder and corruption in Boston surrounding the bizarre case of the infamous gangster Whitey Bulger. This is a stupendous read, as electrifying as Mystic River but even more horrifying for being absolutely true. Betrayal is a page-turner of the highest order, one of the best tales of crime and (non) punishment I’ve ever read. You will not be able to put this book down — guaranteed.”

Finally, this from Lorenzo Carcatera, #1 bestselling author of Sleepers:

“A gripping saga of one honest and determined agent going up against a wall of corruption. Fitzpatrick and Land lay out their case in brilliant fashion—the writing is crisp and solid; the plot is warp-speed paced; and the story is chilling in the details, both large and small. This is Serpico on a federal level, the corruption running up the ladder to the very top, lies and deceit at every turn for all to see if only they chose to give it a glance instead of turning away to line their pockets or further their careers. Betrayal is a page-turner, a rapid-fire tale told with a passion that is a testament to the agent with the courage to wage the decades-long battle to get to the truth.”
