Dirty Rats is the true story of two of Boston’s most powerful brothers – one a gangster, the other a politician – as they rose from poverty in a public-housing project to the pinnacles of power in their respective trades.

Howie Carr, author of two New York Times bestsellers about Boston organized crime and their victims, unravels the brothers’ sordid web of corruption and homicide that still haunts Boston to this day.
