Life Story & Timeline


In 2014, Lehr authored The Birth of a Movement: How Birth of a Nation Ignited the Battle for Civil Rights published by PublicAffairs. In the book, Lehr recaptures the firestorm that ensued after the 1915 release of The Birth of a Nation, zeroing in on the parallel narratives of two men entrenched in the controversy: an African-American journalist and agitator William Monroe Trotter and D.W. Griffith who created the film. In February 2017, Lehr was featured in a PBS documentary titled The Birth of a Movement as part of its Independent Lens documentary series.

In 2014, Lehr began penning his first young adult novel, Trell, inspired by a series of articles he wrote from the Globe about the questionable conviction for first-degree murder (later overturned) of a young drug dealer, Shawn Drumgold. The novel was published by Candlewick Press in September 2017. In it, a Boston teen named Trell teams up with a Globe reporter to try to uncover the evidence to show her father was wrongfully convicted for murder. Feature film rights to Trell were acquired by Epiphany Story Lab prior to the novel’s release.


In 2011, James “Whitey” Bulger was arrested in Santa Monica, California after successfully evading law enforcement for nearly two decades. After his capture, Lehr co-wrote with O’Neill the definitive biography of Bulger, Whitey: The Life of America’s Most Notorious Mob Boss, which was published by Crown in February 2013.


In June, 2009, Lehr published his first solo project, The Fence: A Police Cover-up Along Boston’s Racial Divide published by HarperCollins, a non-fiction narrative about the police beating of Michael Cox, an officer working in plainclothes who was mistaken for a fleeing murder suspect. It was the worst known case of police brutality in Boston history. The Fence was an Edgar Award finalist for best non-fiction, and Fox Searchlight Pictures is developing a motion picture based on the book, with Dennis Lehane and George Pelecanos co-writing the screenplay.


Lehr left the Globe in 2003 and became a professor of journalism at Boston University College of Communication.

Judgment Ridge: The True Story Behind the Dartmouth Murder was published in September 2003 by HarperCollins, co-authored with fellow Globe reporter Mitchell Zuckoff.


In May 2000, Black Mass was released, which he also co-authored with O’Neill. Pulling from their investigations on the Spotlight Team, Black Mass detailed the illicit relationship between Boston crime boss James “Whitey” Bulger and FBI special agent John Connolly. The book became a New York Times bestseller and won the 2001 Edgar Award for best fact crime. In 2015 the film adaptation of Black Mass premiered, with Johnny Depp playing the role of Whitey Bulger and Benedict Cumberbatch playing Whitey’s brother Bill Bulger. In the movie, Lehr makes a cameo as a patron in a restaurant.


Lehr was a John S. Knight Journalism Fellowships at Stanford in 1991-1992. From 1985 to 2003, he was a reporter at The Boston Globe, where he was the Globe’s legal affairs reporter, magazine and feature writer, and a longtime member of the Spotlight Team, an investigative reporting unit. He was a Pulitzer Prize finalist in investigative reporting. He was a Visiting Journalist-in-Residence at The Schuster Institute for Investigative Journalism at Brandeis University in 2007.


In January 1989, he co-authored his first book, The Underboss: The Rise and Fall of a Mafia Family, with Gerard O’Neill published first by St. Martin’s Press and later editions by PublicAffairs.


Lehr grew up in Connecticut. He attended The Gunnery School, in Washington, Connecticut, and later attended Harvard University, graduating in 1976. While working for the Hartford Courant, Lehr received a law degree from the University of Connecticut in 1984.
