Joe Bruno’s Mobsters – Six Volume Set” is a definitive history of American mobsters, dating as far back as the early 1820’s and continuing until the mid-1900’s.

The first three books “Mobsters, Gangs, Crooks and Other Creeps – Volumes 1, 2 and 3” contain bios of scores of gangsters, both male and female. These three books also include famous murders (The Murder of Sanford White) and disasters like the General Slocum Paddleboat Fire.

The fourth book – “The Wrong Man: Who Ordered the Murder of Gambler Herman Rosenthal and Why” details a famous murder than took place 100 years ago. Bruno maintains the wrong man, NY City Police Lieut. Charles Becker, was executed, while the real killers testified against Becker and walked away free men.

“Murder and Mayhem in the Big Apple” focuses on the exploits of the murderous Black Hand, The Boys from Brownsville, and Murder incorporated.

And Finally “Mob Wives – Fuhgeddaboudit!” is Bruno’s way of saying that the TV program “Mob Wives” is such an embarrassing abomination, no intelligent person should ever watch the show. And I wholeheartedly agree.

All in all, $2.99 is a cheap price to pay for so much information in one six-volume book.

Highly recommended!

Book is very informative about the most famous mobsters and how they rose to power, and how the fell. Also, how people were very poor and what they had to endure to survive.

This a fun entertaining read for anyone interested in organized crime or criminal history. I would not recommend the volumes indidvidually, but I really enjoyed the set. It was repetative at times but even this I did not mind because it helped me to recall the various relationships that existed amongst the players.

When I saw it was only $2.99 for six books in a boxed set on ‘Mobsters’, I was first skeptical that the quality would not be great. But, boy was I wrong! The entire book is well-written and quite informative. Highly recommended!

JOE BRUNO’S MOBSTERS – SIX VOLUME SET is a collection of three Mobster’s books and with just under 700 pages, a true history book of murder and mayhem. I love Mr. Bruno’s books. He is the go to guy when you want information on gangs and mobs. A must have for the true crime collector.
