Growing up in Dorchester presented real challenges, but once Tom took over his father´s auto repair shop in South Boston, life became intense. Mob-enforcers, drug dealers and killers became his friends and clients. Thomas Cirignano experienced Southie´s era of extreme crime and violence, first hand. He managed to not just co-exist, but to thrive in that environment. At the shop, Whitey Bulger threatened Tom with a gun. A neighbor was gunned-down at the gas pumps. After confronting another would-be killer, that man later returned and shot Tom´s friend eleven times. In a house down the street, Whitey was killing people and burying them in the cellar. A friendly drug dealer often tossed samples from his car window while driving past the pumps. Life was never dull, and Tom got himself into near-fatal situations far too often. How did Tom survive his gunpoint encounter with Whitey Bulger? Find the answer within an inspiring memoir that is tempered by amazing humor.
