Murder and Mayhem in the Big Apple – From The Black Hand to Murder Incorporated:
When it comes to murder and mayhem, there has never been a more fertile backdrop than the mean streets of New York City. Whether it was murder for profit, or a contract hit ordered by mob bosses, or maybe just a simple hit because the killer didn’t like the victim’s face (this happens more often than you think), there have been more dead bodies deposited in the gutters of New York City than on the streets of any other city in the world.
So fire up your Kindle, pour yourself a glass of your favorite beverage, and enjoy the most vicious killers ever to prowl the streets of New York City.
The Wrong Man: Who Ordered the Murder of Gambler Herman Rosenthal and Why.
2012 is the 100-year anniversary of the murder of small-time gambler Herman Rosenthal – the most celebrated murder of its time. Make no mistake, there are no good guys here; no innocent victims. The fact is Bald Jack Rose, a well-known New York City criminal, framed crooked New York City police lieutenant – Charles Becker – for the killing of stool pigeon Herman Rosenthal.
People in the underworld cheered the death of Rosenthal; he was disliked that much. But that doesn’t negate the fact that the wrong man sat in Sing Sing’s electric chair for ordering Rosenthal’s murder, while the man who framed Becker – and orchestrated the murder of Rosenthal himself – walked away a free man.
“The Wrong Man” explains how this all happened, and who benefited from Becker’s conviction and execution.
You’d be shocked, surprised, and sickened at how easily an innocent man, albeit a crooked cop, could be framed.
If it could happen to Lieut. Charles Becker, it could happen to any one of us.
