"The Irish King of Winter Hill: The True Story of James J. “Buddy” McLean"
Author Michael McLean Tell the True Story: What Role Did the Mob Play in Boston?
The True Story of James J. “Buddy” McLean is told by Michael McLean, who wants to set the record straight about his father, a man who is best remembered for eliminating the McLaughlin Gang from the Charlestown area of the city during the early 1960s McLean-McLaughlin Irish gang war. Buddy, who worked on the Boston docks in the late 1950s and early 1960s with his father’s union card, was a teamster from Local No. 25 during this dangerous era when gangsters ran the docks.
Says the author, “I have read all the books and the information on the Internet about my father, and most of it is wrong. After talking to his closest friends, I decided I would set the record straight.” The book outlines the rise of Buddy McLean from his humble beginnings as a hardworking truck driver, to leading the now infamous Winter Hill Gang, to his murder in 1965.
