“Joe Bruno’s Mobsters – Six Volume Set” is ranked #1 on Amazon.com in the category “Hot New Releases in Organized Crime True Accounts.”






Joe Bruno’s “Mobsters, Gangs, Crooks, and Other Creeps” finished in second place (runner up) in the 2013 eFestival of Words Best of the Independent Ebook Awards in the category “Nonfiction.”

Bargain – everyone loves a bargain, and “Joe Bruno’s Mobsters – Six Volume Set” is a bargain that’s hard to beat.

This boxed set, consisting of six books by mob writer Joe Bruno, starts with “Mobsters, Gangs, Crooks and Other Creeps – Volumes 1, 2, and 3 – New York City.” All three books were once ranked No. 1 in the Amazon book category “Gangs,” and all three are consistently ranked in the top 100 in Amazon’s “Organized Crime.”

According to New York City criminal attorney Mathew J. Mari, “Mobsters, Gangs, Crooks, and Other Creeps” is “a composite of characters and events that entwines the denizens of New York City’s underworld with the rich history of New York City from the early 1800’s through the early 1900’s.”

“The Wrong Man: Who Ordered the Murder of Gambler Herman Rosenthal and Why” describes the events surrounding the sensational 1912 murder of stool-pigeon/gambler Herman Rosenthal, including the two trials and subsequent execution of New York City Police Lieut. Charles Becker. Becker was undoubtedly a corrupt cop of the highest order, but Becker did not order Rosenthal’s murder, and it was, in fact, to Becker’s advantage to keep Rosenthal very much alive.

“Murder and Mayhem in the Big Apple – From the Black Hand to Murder Incorporated” details the progression of New York City murder machines from 1900-1940. It starts with the Italian Black Hand, and cruises through the Boys from Brooklyn, which later became part of the most deadly American alliance ever: Murder Incorporated.

Finally, to cap off this six-book boxed set there’s “Mob Wives – Fuhgeddaboudit!” – a clever critique of the VH1 TV program Mob Wives. As L.L. McKenna said in her Amazon book review – The Real of Reality TV, “What a pleasure ‘Mob Wives – Fuhgeddaboudit!’ is to read! Mr. Bruno not only provides insight to the ‘reality show’ but includes his blogs and responses. While scripted or not, the only truth is the paycheck that the “characters” cash while exposing themselves to the viewers.”

In summation: you get six Joe Bruno books (674 pages) for less than the price of a Starbuck’s cup of Joe.

Who says people can’t find a bargain these days?

    Hi Joe: I have been reading about Organized Crime (I would have said Mafia but after reading your 6 volume set I learned that mafia only refers to Organized Crime from Sicily) since I could read (I am 55 and grew up in the suburbs of NYC). I am almost done with the 6 volume set on Kindle and I am learning a lot. I would have loved if you had some pictures of these guys like many of the other books I have read on the topic. The first thing I ever read on the subject was a special edition magazine back in the 60’s called: “Mafia at War”. I believe it was put out by either “Look” magazine or “Life” magazine. I have tried to find a copy of it but have yet to see one anywhere.

    I am learning a lot about the subject from your 6 volume edition and look forward to reading some of your other books
