“The Wrong Man: Who Ordered The Murder Of Gambler Herman Rosenthal And Why” by Joe Bruno is an excellently written account of the murder of the title and the court case that followed. Written in a gripping narrative this reads as easily as a compelling thriller.

Clearly well researched and confident about court proceedings at the times and about the facts, the author tells the story of what may have been a great miscarriage of justice. The fact that this has actually happened exactly 100 years ago but is about real people and events had a huge impact on me during the read.

The author did well with holding back his own conclusions until the end with great journalistic skill. Short and concise this is a great and powerful read.

Product Information:

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 transpired.
