Former Pulitzer Prize winning Boston Globe staffer Gerard O'Neill could pass as a prosecutor,

Shelley Murphy and Kevin Cullen cut their teeth at
the Boston Herald before they were hired by the Boston Globe. As a result, they
have a touch more edge than some of their colleagues at Morrissey Boulevard. And -- interesting enough -- a touch more
charm. Their book, Whitey Bulger: America's
Most Wanted Gangster and the Manhunt that Brought him to Justice, has hit the New York Times Best Seller List.
