This review is from: “Mobsters, Gangs, Crooks and Other Creeps-Volume 1 – New York City” (Kindle Edition)

MOBSTERS, GANGS, CROOKS AND OTHER CREEPS by Joe Bruno is packed with crimes and criminal stories that took place in NYC.

This author captured some of the bigger names in criminal history. The book is well-written and for over 200 pages, it’s worth a lot more than 99 cents. If you’re a true crime reader, you will enjoy the stories of mobsters, gangs, outlaws, creeps, crimes and criminals. A brilliant book to add to my collection.

If you’re a mobster fan, this is the book for you. There are dozens of short bios on mobsters, gangs, riots and natural disasters, some of which I never head of before. Especially interesting are the articles that took place in the 1800’s, like the Civil War Riots of 1863, and the Astor Place Theatre Riots of 1849. At 99 cents, this book is a better value than most at ten times the price.

Great book and if you like fiction mafia—I suggest this one For Nothing

I loved all three volumes. The author writes in away that brings all of these non fiction characters to life. All 3 volumes were great reads and I loved learning about these old time new york born and bred criminals, especially the small timers i had never heard of.

I especially enjoyed the authors describing how characters would travel all around the ny metro area when they were on the lam, including hiding out in upstste ny.

Thank you for writing such colorful books and pricing them so reasonably.

I absolutely loved this book. In fact I could not put it down. As the title describes, when I finished it I really felt as if I just took an introductory course about this subject. Mr. Bruno’ explanations and descriptions and quite detailed. As you get through the book, his narrative is very consistent. I really didn’t find any contradictions. I am a medical researcher and don’t know why I find this material so fascinating. The book is also written in both a serious and comedic mannerI I am already on the second volume. Joe is quite the master. His stories are very accurate and consistent with other books I have read. Great work, Joe.

A very interesting book with even more colorful characters.
An easy read, sometimes repetitive but all in all, enlightening.
Would definitely recommend.

Good historic read of the history of organized and disorganized crime in NY. Not a lot of detail, but not skeletal. Sort of an overview with enough content to make it interesting.

This review is from: “Mobsters, Gangs, Crooks and Other Creeps-Volume 1 – New York City” (Kindle Edition)

This is a great book on the bad guys in New York City; especially those from the mid-1800’s and early 1900’s. It’s a fast read and a bargain at only 99 cents. Most of the other gangster books on Amazon cost five buck or more, and they aren’t as good as this one. I can’t wait to read Volumes 2 and 3.

If you liked “Gangs of New York” if you liked “The Godfather” You must read all three books. It will fill in all the blanks and give you an insight into each character. Joe Bruno certainly did his homework!
