Edward Maiani aka Eddie Miami

associate of the Winter Hill Gang. In the early 1970’s, a new FBI agent in Boston named John Morris decided to recruit Eddie Miami as an informant – by planting a fake bomb under his car and then phoning in an anonymous tip to the local cops. After the cops removed the “bomb,” Morris approached Eddie Miami and told him his fellow members of the Winter Hill Gang was trying to kill him. Eddie Miami suspected skullduggery, and told Morris to bleep off. A few years later, Eddie Miami was sent away on drug charges. Morris, meanwhile, went on Whitey’s payroll, eventually collecting $7,000 for his services on behalf of organized crime.
