Inspiração para o filme homônimo estrelado por Johnny Depp, Aliança do crime narra a vida do lendário gângster James “Whitey” Bulger, um dos criminosos mais cruéis e notórios da história dos Estados Unidos.

Considerado em certa época o segundo nome na lista de mais procurados do FBI, atrás apenas de Osama bin Laden, James “Whitey” Bulger construiu um impressionante império do crime. Na década de 1980 ele aterrorizou a cidade de Boston praticamente sem ser importunado pela lei. Houve quem atribuísse isso a suas conexões políticas, pois James era irmão do influente William Bulger, presidente do Senado Estadual de Massachusetts. Os dois tinham reputação de astutos e inescrupulosos, mas, provou-se mais tarde, o anjo de James tinha outro sobrenome: Connolly.

Agente em franca ascensão na divisão de Boston do FBI, John Connolly foi criado em South Boston, mesma vizinhança de Whitey, um gângster até então pouco influente. Era a época da caça à Cosa Nostra, e, após muitas tentativas de agentes do bureau, Connolly conseguiu o que poucos acreditavam ser possível: transformou Bulger em informante. O gângster, porém, fez muito mais do que seu dever de casa – além de colaborar para o desmantelamento da Máfia italiana, manobrou uma série de assassinatos e passou a comandar o tráfico de drogas na cidade. O acordo entre Bulger e Connolly saiu completamente do controle e, anos mais tarde, veio a se tornar o maior escândalo da história do FBI envolvendo informantes.

Escrito por dois ex-repórteres que cobriram o caso, o livro é uma narrativa épica de pura violência, trapaça e corrupção, cujo ponto central é a amizade entre dois garotos cujas vidas seguiram caminhos opostos, porém igualmente nebulosos. 

For fans of The Atlantis Gene, The For fans of The Atlantis Gene, The Hunger Games, and Red Rising, this high-suspense sci-fi novel tells the story of a teenager from Coonabarabran, a small town in the outback of New South Wales, who discovers an international cover-up, and a terrifying reality that's far beyond the world he thought he knew.

Astronomers are dying mysteriously around the globe with a secret they wanted you to know. Storm Elliot is an 18-year-old farmhand with a gift he considers a curse. He's able to memorize anything. When Penny introduces Storm to her father, the director of Australia's most famous observatory, Michael Boulos sees the perfect opportunity to smuggle his startling data to a colleague in the capital. 

But Storm is intercepted, and deep below Parliament House, he meets a giant with a terrifying revelation. Has Storm found a formidable ally, or has he become a pawn in a multi-level game where humanity's existence is at stake? The greatest cover-up in history is about to unravel and the conspirators will do anything to ensure the ancient deception continues...

Jubilee Year (Erelong Trilogy Book I) is a full-length novel that can also be enjoyed as a standalone.
