Below is my response to someone called “Amazon Customer” (they never use their real name when they perform hatchet jobs), after he (or she) posted a 1-star review for my new book, “The Mysterious Murder of Martha Moxley: Did the Political and Financial Power of the Kennedy/Skakel Families Trump the Truth?”

Anyone who knows me personally knows I don’t take bullshit from anyone, even a Kennedy, or a Kennedy “groupie” like the person below appears to be.

The review:

1.0 out of 5 stars
Opinionated rehash of old material
By Amazon Customer
on August 23, 2016
Format: Kindle Edition

This was written by a biased author from his computer terminal. He formulated the Dominic Dunne POV and carefully curated the facts (gossip) surrounding the case. Why not. It worked for Dunne and his boy buddy Mark the disgraced cop Furhman. Too bad, I admired a previous book by Bruno, not knowing much about the case. I happen to be familiar enough with the Moxley case to know Joe created a fiction that he may actually believe.

*****

My reply on Amazon to his (or her) review.

Joe Bruno Sr.

Why do you believe to believe RFK Jr, and not me, Mark Fuhrman, Dominick Dunne and Len Levitt, all of whom have come to the same conclusion; that Michael Skakel is guilty of the murder of Martha Moxley? We have no horses in this race. RFK Jr. is trying to protect a blood cousin.

You call what we have written “fiction,” and RFk Jr.’s book “Framed” you have rated 5 stars and said, “This book proves it beyond a shadow of a doubt. Fact is indeed stranger than fiction. Utterly amazing the gossip monger Dominique Dunne and his very close friend, disgraced cop Mark Furhman, had such impact upon an innocent man. Kennedy solves the case in this compelling account. One can only hope some justice will be served in the future, that the guilty will be prosecuted and Skakel exonerated.”

You’re doing the same think RFK Jr. does in his book: he paints Michael Skakel as a saint, and everyone else connected with the case is either corrupt, incompetent, or a liar.

This is from a man, RFK Jr., who was found unconscious in an airplane bathroom and subsequently arrested for possession of heroin. As a result, he was fired from his job at the NY City District Attorney’s office, and disbarred for two years. And yet you give him kudos for being credible and say I created a “fiction,” when in fact what I have written in my book is the absolute, unbiased truth, taken from court reports, newspaper accounts, and all available documents pertaining to the case, including the Sutton Report, which was commissioned by Rushton Skakel to find his sons innocent of the murder of Martha Moxley, but produced the exact opposite result.

In addition, you call Mark Fuhrman a “disgraced cop,” but you don’t call RFK Jr. a “disgraced lawyer,” when he shamed his family and the NY City District Attorney’s office with his past criminal behavior.

And why would you believe a man, RFK Jr., who is an admitted serial adulterer, who some people claim was responsible for the suicide death of his second wife, Mary, which happened while he was romancing his third wife?

If a man would lie to his wife, the person who is supposed to be closer and dearer to him that anyone else on earth, how can we trust anything he says?

Throughout the history of mankind, there has always been one constant creed among those scoundrels who inhabit the Underworld – crime pays.

Whether it be John Allen – “The Wickedest Man in New York City,” pimping off young girls in his Manhattan Lower East Side brothel/dance hall, or George Leonidas Leslie, “The King of the Bank Robbers,” knocking off a New York City bank, or Fredericka “Marm” Mandelbaum, all 250-pounds of her, fencing stolen good from her Clinton Street grocery store, making money in a life of crime was a fait accompli; that is, unless you get caught, which happens all too often.

Some pay back society with time in prison, other’s pay with their miserable lives, and some scoot away scot-free, never to answer for their wicked offenses against humanity.

Crime Pays: Scoundrels and Their Schemes will bring you on a seedy ride that slithers across the underbelly of American society, where every crook and criminal has their own unique gimmick to fill their greedy pockets with other people’s hard-earned cash.

Virginia Hill was a knock-around broad who bedded down the biggest gangsters of her time. It was said Hill spent more time on her back than Michelangelo did painting the Sistine Chapel. The word on the Las Vegas streets was that she was the exclusive property of mobster Bugsy Siegel, and it was plain to everyone in the know that Bugsy was just crazy about Hill.

But was Virginia Hill really a Trojan horse in Siegel’s camp; put there by the Mafia to make sure Bugsy was giving them an honest count on their Las Vegas ventures?

The answer is not that cut and dried.

*****

Degenerate gambler and sportsman, Jacob (Bald Jack) Rose (Rosenzweig), due to a rare disease, had nary a hair on his entire body. But what Rose lacked in hair, he more than made up for with a diabolical criminal brilliance that put him “head and shoulders” (no pun intended) above the competition.

In the early 1900s, one of Rose’s competitors was fellow gambler Herman Rosenthal, a mean and snaky runt who had the reputation of being a stool pigeon, or as they say on the streets – a rat – for the New York City Police Department. Rose and Rosenthal both owned competing gambling joints in the seedy uptown area of Manhattan called the “Tenderloin,” or “Satan’s Circus.”

Rosenthal’s partner of sorts was corrupt New York City Police Lieutenant Charles Becker, who was not adverse to taking money with both hands (graft) from the Tenderloin’s gambling joints and houses of prostitution. Rose and Rosenthal both paid Becker handsomely, but then Rosenthal got the idea he was too big a man to continue to line Becker’s pockets with cash.

What happened next was called “The Crime of the Century.”

Cover Five Points

‘New York City’s Five Points The Most Dangerous and Decadent Neighborhood Ever!” is highest at #2. It’s also ranked #6 in the same category on Amazon/United States.

Product Description:

“The Five Points is personal to me. In 1914, my mother, the youngest of 12 children, was born at 104 Bayard Street. When I grew up, I lived around the corner at 134 White Street. During my youth, the area was called Little Italy. But at the time of my mother’s birth, it was still called the Five Points.

The term “Five Points” was coined in the early part of the nineteenth century because the area had at its center a five-point intersection formed by Orange Street (now Baxter Street), Cross Street (then Park and now Mosco Street – Frank Mosco was my Little League coach), Anthony Street (Now Worth), Little Water Street (which no longer exists), and Mulberry Street.

Across the street from the front entrance to my White Street tenement building, and close enough to reach with three or four leaping bounds, was the imposing city prison called the Tombs. The dark and dreary structure was the third incarnation of a major jailhouse in this area, the first two being located one block to the west on Center Street. The Tombs played an integral part of the Five Points’ sordid history. Hundreds of dastardly individuals were hung at the Tombs, and hundreds of thousands more had the Tombs as their mailing address, some permanently.

In 1896, at the prodding of journalist Jacob Riis, the hideous Mulberry Bend was demolished by the city, and Columbus Park was built in its stead. Before then, the Five Points was predominantly Irish, and it is estimated that 10,000 – 15,000 people, mostly Irish, lived in horrendous squalor in the four square blocks that of “The Bend.” When the Bend’s buildings were razed, the Irish were displaced. Most moved north to Hell’s Kitchen, the area bounded by 42nd Street and 59th Streets, between 7th and 12th Avenues.

After the demolition of Mulberry Bend, the Five Points became the domain of Italian immigrants sprinkled with a few hundred Chinese, who claimed parts of Mott, Pell, and Doyers Streets as their turf. In fact, over the first two decades of the twentieth century, the Five Points district evolved into two intertwining ethnic neighborhoods: Little Italy and Chinatown. It wasn’t until the mid-1920s that the term “Five Points” started to fade from the vocabulary of the area’s residents.

Most remnants of the original Five Points are long gone. But the names of its former inhabitants still flicker across the lips of many New Yorkers, never in a flattering way.

So, fire up your Kindle and read about some of the most distasteful creatures ever to roam the face of the earth. They all inhabited my old Five Points neighborhood in times gone by.”

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.

People love to watch train wrecks, and the VH1 hit show “Mob Wives,” which miraculously has run for two seasons, is a train wreck of biblical proportions. 

“Mob Wives” is such a monstrosity that it is beyond belief that a show starring several loud, cranky, surgically altered, unpleasant, and uninteresting women could be such a big commercial success; so much so, there’s two spinoffs presently on television: “Chicago Mob Wives,” and “The Big Ang Show,”staring Big Ang Raiola. (Big Ang is a character in “Mob Wives,” who is so big in so many ways she resembles a WWE wrestler in drag; with breasts the size of boulders and lips the size of limousine mud flaps.) 

“Mob Wives – Fuhgeddaboudit!” consists of my “Joe Bruno on the Mob” blogs concerning “Mob Wives,” along with the responses I’ve received from my readers, both on my blog and on my Facebook page “Mobsters, Gangs,” where I also post my blog. 

Some of the responses are hysterical; some are dumb; and some are downright obscene. I’ve tried to clear up the obscenities and the bad English the best I could. 

After reading this book, if you still decide to watch Season 3 of “Mob Wives,” then there’s nothing I can do for you. You’re hooked and you’re probably watching “Chicago Mob Wives and “The Big Ang Show,” too. 

God have mercy on your soul. 

And if you have never seen “Mob Wives” and are contemplating watching one of the three shows, or any combination thereof, this book might talk you out of doing so. 

One can only hope.
