For more than a decade, Boston's favorite fugitive mobster hasn't shown his face in his hometown, but James "Whitey" Bulger is very much a presence around here these days. No fewer than four new books examine the 76-year-old crime lord's underworld empire, and he is the inspiration for "The Departed," a Martin Scorsese movie due out in the fall and filmed around Bulger's old stomping grounds in South Boston.
