Janet Uhlar has a unique story to tell. During the summer of 2013, she was a juror in the high-profile criminal trial of James “Whitey” Bulger. She was transformed by what she saw as corruption within the judiciary and the failure of the media to take notice.
The Truth Be Damned is a work of fiction, based not only on her experience as juror #12, but her extensive research following that trial, including two face to face private conversations with Bulger himself. The reader is encouraged to determine where the fiction ends and the truth begins. She includes appendices in the book of excerpts from Bulger's letters, exposing his relationship with members of the FBI and fellow criminals.
