WHITMAN — Local Weymouth author and retired Massachusetts State Police Captain Joe Saccardo had his first book signing for “Capable” at the Patio Restaurant in Whitman on Sunday. A full house was in attendance for the event. Many friends and family enjoyed the fun while enjoying their favorite beverage and snack.

Saccardo spent three decades in law enforcement during a time where mobsters ran without fear in Boston’s streets. “Capable,” which be officially released in the coming weeks, tells the unwritten stories of those decades, including the bloody reign of James “Whitey” Bulger alongside Steve “The Rifleman” Flemmi, the serial killer John Martorano and the state trooper who was framed by the Boston office of the FBI.
