Another great book by Joe Bruno on the Mafia in the United States.

Murder Inc. was an unbelievable group of men who got away with their crimes for some time. It is amazing to see how far police investigations have come since that time. I can’t wait to start the next book by Mr Bruno.

This was a bit of nostalgia and I remember my grandparents telling me of the Black hand when they arrived in New York in the early 1900’s, these thugs preyed on the poor and hard working ,they were all happy to see an end to the Black Hand.

What can I say, this is another typical Joe Bruno book, detailed,factual and written like if you were having a conversation sitting on the stoop of your house with him. He writes like if he was an old friend that I hung out with in Brooklyn. I have two more of his books on my shelf, and can’t wait to get to them. As with all of his other works, I highly recommend this book!

Joe Bruno supplies us with a well written book that provides in depth treatments of some very interesting big time murder cases. Moreover it contains several entertaining and quite funny statements. I really enjoyed reading it.

I love Joe Bruno’s books. I always say that he’s the NYC true crime historian. I never heard of the Black Hand until reading this book. NYC has had its share of murder and corruption over the past couple of centuries and the Author is a wealth of knowledge about it. A must read for any true crime book collector.

Joe Bruno delivers a hard punch, well researched, no nonsense book. People need to be reminded about dark periods of history. Murder and Mayhem in the Big Apple,
From Black Hand to Murder Incorporated uncovers the atrocities committed by men who had neither compassion nor conscience. They lived by power rule of the Corleonesi Mafia who made their bones by killing whomever the bosses said needed to be killed. That rule brought from Corleone, Sicily by Giuseppe Morello and Nick and Vincent Terranova became the Black Hand. Worldwide, in 1880 ,People noticed that the United States was the land of milk and honey. Added to this fact was the law that a three year Grace period existed after which an Italian immigrant became immune to deportation.

Fear, hatred,and brutality are brought to our awareness in a most convincing and stark manner. The reader is an observer as chills run up and down the spine. Joe Bruno gives us a glimpse loaded with facts. This history loaded portrayal includes Buggsy Goldstein, Harry Strauss, Happy Malone, Frank Abbandando, Lepke Buchalter,Albert Anastasia and Lucky Luciano. Joe Bruno brings full realism to play and bear upon our psyches.
