Plug Uglies is a perfect addition to the library of any true-crime fan anywhere. Plug Uglies is the final installment in best-selling author Howie Carr s series about organized crime in Boston. In this book, Howie tells a number of previously untold stories about the famous FBI bugging of the Boston Mafia s headquarters, the merger of the Winter Hill Gang with the Mafia, and the Plymouth Mail Truck robbery. He also includes scores of never-before-seen photos, revealing the private lives of Mob serial killer Jimmy the Bear Flemmi and one of Johnny Martorano s long-forgotten victims. The book also includes Whitey Bulger s early military and court records, including the first record of his informing from 1956, FBI Most Wanted posters, and a fascinating series of memos from the Massachusetts State Police detailing the inside story on the hits of the Irish Gang War.

Why shop Indie?

Why shop Indie?

When you shop at an independently owned business, your entire community benefits:

  • The Economy
  • Spend $100 at a local and $68 of that stays in your community. Spend the same $100 at a national chain, and your community only sees $43.
  • Local businesses create higher-paying jobs for our neighbors.
  • More of your taxes are reinvested in your community — where they belong.
  • The Environment
  • Buying local means less packaging, less transportation, and a smaller carbon footprint.
  • Shopping in a local business district means less infrastructure, less maintenance, and more money to beautify your community.
  • The Community
  • Local retailers are your friends and neighbors — support them and they’ll support you.
  • Local businesses donate to charities at more than twice the rate of national chains.
  • More independents means more choice, more diversity, and a truly unique community.
