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.”

International Best Selling Author Joe Bruno’s “Jimmy Hoffa The Mafia’s Greatest Hits: Volume Three” is now available on Amazon.com.

Product introduction:
Three of the biggest unsolved mysteries during the past half-a-century are “Who killed Jimmy Hoffa?”; “Why was Jimmy Hoffa killed?” and “Where is Jimmy Hoffa’s body buried?”

The answer to the first question is a no-brainer. The Mafia killed Jimmy Hoffa – plain and simple. But the “why” is much more complicated.

Jimmy Hoffa and his nefarious union activities were joined at the hip with the Mafia since the mid-1930s. Hoffa was their fair-haired boy who delivered for the Mafia in more ways than one. Even before he became President of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters (IBT), Hoffa used his influence with the IBT to provide several Mafia bosses, including Tampa’s Santo Trafficante, Louisiana’s Carlo Marcello, and Detroit’s Anthony “Tony Jack” Giacalone, hundreds of millions of dollar in unsecured loans from the Teamster Pension Fund. Those loans were used to fund numerous hotels/casinos and other businesses in various parts of North America including Cuba, the Dominican Republic, and in Las Vegas. In truth, half the hotels/casinos in Las Vegas would never have never been built without the financial support of Hoffa’s IBT.

Unfortunately for Hoffa, his brusque and dictatorial ways eventually made him unpalatable for the Mafia bosses, who were used to being treated with the utmost respect.

The Mafioso’s nickname for Hoffa was “Marteduzzo,” which is Sicilian for “The Little Hammer,” because he ruthlessly hammered away at anyone who displeased him, or got in his way on his rise to power.

But as Hoffa’s disrespect for the Mafia bosses increased, the “Little Hammer,” inevitably transformed himself into the lowly nail destined to be banged into oblivion.

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?

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.

What people are saying about Find Big Fat Fanny Fast – The Biggest Mafia Killer Ever!.”

5.0 out of 5 stars Find Big Fat Fanny Fast, 
By Enrico Maruffi 
Verified Purchase

This review is from: Find Big Fat Fanny Fast (Paperback)

“This was a very funny, informative look back about life in the lower east side of Manhattan. It covers the a time period of when the Italian mobsters controlled the area to the rise of the Chinese gangs and the struggles between the two groups. Some of the events in the book had to come from real life experiences (as they say you can’t make up some of this stuff) but I assume the names were changed to protect the innocent or guilty.

Many parts of the book were laugh out loud funny. While I never lived in the area my father owned a bar in the area and I could visualize the streets and events through the book. If you lived on the lower east side this is a must, must read book. If you didn’t, it is still a great read.”
