He was the canary who could sing but couldn’t fly.
Abe “Kid Twist” Reles was one of the most vicious and unlikable mobsters in the history of the American underworld. And to add to his distastefulness, Reles had a face only a mother could love.
After winning a Brooklyn mob war against the three Shapiro brothers (Reles was involved in the murder of all three Shapiros), Reles took over the rackets in the Brownsville section of Brooklyn. Reles and his vicious crew, dubbed “The Boys from Brownsville,” eventually caught the eye of Louie “Lepke” Buchalter, and soon Reles and his crew were charter members of Murder Inc., a battalion of killers who were responsible for anywhere from 500 to 1000 murders throughout the country.
However, in January of 1940, Reles, who was sitting pretty and bathing in illegal dough, was picked up by the cops and charged with the 1933 murder of small-time hood, Red Alpert. The reason for the pinch was that two of Reles’s flunkies, who had witnessed Alpert’s murder and were afraid for their own lives, ran to the cops, and they both sang the same sad song, “It was Abe Reles who killed Red Alpert.”
Reles knew he was screwed. He knew that two men corroborating that he had whacked Alpert was all the District Attorney needed to fry his butt in the electric chair. So Reles did what no one in the underworld thought he was capable of doing: Reles became a rat.
“Abe “Kid Twist” Reles – The Fink Who Took Down Murder Inc.” tells the story of the rise and fall of Abe Reles, from a street punk, to a killer, to a stool pigeon, whose alleged attempt at flight landed him flat on his back; squashed like a fly dive-bombing into a speeding car’s windshield.
It couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy.
