I read the prologue online, and I couldn't find a copy fast enough. I worked for Ellen Brogna years ago,and knew Gary Winter. Mr Martini & Ms Keratsis have captured his essence, in those brief few words, and I was exited! I was not disappointed! This was REAL! I have read many books on Whitey Bulger and company, most of them bored me to tears. CITIZEN SOMERVILLE is different. NOT ABOUT WHITEY!!!!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Captivating. Real. HONEST. If you think you have read it all, you are wrong. This book is so different!I couldn't put it down! This is not a "Poor me!" story. This is not a blood and gore "Stephen King type" tell all.It's not a plea of innocence.
CITIZEN SOMERVILLE tells of the humans and humanity behind the headlines. The trials and tribulations of growing up in a world, most of us think we know, but do not. Boston's infamous Irish Mob. It is seen through the eyes of two men of different generations, and the women around them. The understanding, self accountability, and wisdom of surviving chaos and heartbreak of a way of life foreign to all but those that lived it. You will laugh, you will cry, you will understand. It was wonderfully told. Thank you Bobby Martini. I know Gary is smiling and proud, wherever he is.
