The Jack Nicholson film, "The Departed", didn't tell half their story. A poor kid from the slums, Robert Fitzpatrick grew up to become a stellar FBI agent and challenge the country's deadliest gangsters. Relentless in his desire to catch, prosecute, and convict Whitey Bulger, Fitzpatrick fought the nation's most determined cop-gangster battle since Melvin Purvis hunted, confronted, and killed John Dillinger. But in his crusade to bring Bulger to justice, Fitzpatrick not only faced Whitey but also his corrupted FBI cohorts and political cronies. Even when Fitzpatrick discovered that his biggest obstacle was his own FBI, the agent continued to pursue Whitey and his gang...knowing that they were prepared to murder anyone who got in their way.
