What people are saying about “Mobsters, Gangs, Crooks, and Other Creeps – Volume 1.”

EXCELLENT BOOK ON ORGANIZED CRIME!

- Mathew J. Mari – New York City Criminal Attorney – Joe Bruno has hit the mark in presenting Old New York the way it really was. Rough and bloody! -

GREAT BOOK FOR A TRUE CRIME FIX!

– RJ Parker – “Bestselling Author” – Author of 7 True Crime Books – Top 500 Reviewer

MOBSTERS, GANGS, CROOKS, AND OTHER CREEPS by Joe Bruno is packed with crimes and criminal stories that took place in NYC. This author captured some of the bigger names in criminal history. The book is well-written, and it’s worth a lot more than 99 cents. If you’re a true crime reader, you will enjoy the stories of mobsters, gangs, outlaws, creeps, crimes and criminals. A brilliant book to add to my collection.

GREAT READ!

– Desmond Gill – If you’re a mobster fan, this is the book for you. There are dozens of short bios on mobsters, gangs, riots and natural disasters, some of which I never heard of before.

Especially interesting are the articles that took place in the 1800’s, like the Civil War Riots of 1863, and the Astor Place Theater Riots of 1849. At 99 cents, this book is a better value than most at ten times the price.

BEST 99 CENT INVESTMENT YOU CAN MAKE!!!

– J. Sebastian – I loved all three volumes. The author writes in a way that brings all of these nonfiction characters to life. I especially loved learning about these old time New York born and bred criminals, especially the small timers I had never heard of.

Thank you for writing such colorful books and pricing them so reasonably!

AWESOME!!

Lexmike – The stories were very well written. There was more information given than I knew before I bought the book. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to know more about the Mafia.

What Makes a Rat, a Rat?

Mathew J. Mari – New York City Criminal Attorney for 37 years

Contrary to popular opinion, rats are born and not made.

People think law enforcement ‘turns’ people into rats by persuading them to ‘turn state’s evidence,’ as the old saying goes. There is a difference between the verb ‘rat,’ which is what a lot of people do, and the noun ‘rat,’ which is what a lot of people are.

Real men don’t rat because they still have to look at themselves in the mirror. The reason they don’t rat is not because of some oath of silence (omerta), or because they are afraid of being killed, but because they simply ARE NOT RATS. The people who rat (the verb) do it because they ARE RATS (the noun). The people who rat were born rats and simply do what they were born to do when the circumstances benefit them.

It’s really that simple.”

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:

When it comes to murder and mayhem, there has never been a more fertile backdrop than the mean streets of New York City.

Whether it was murder for profit, or a contract hit ordered by mob bosses, or maybe just a simple hit because the killer didn’t like the victim’s face (this happens more often than you think), there have been more dead bodies deposited in the gutters of New York City than on the streets of any other city in the world. This is in addition to the thousands of murder victims whose bodies “did a Houdini”; or in other words – disappeared.
Most people enjoy reading about a gruesome murder – the bloodier the better. Besides the casual civilian reveling in the miseries of others, certain killers also enjoy reading about their achievements in the press. Other killers couldn’t care less about the notoriety, but instead view the publicity as a method of convincing potential victims if they don’t cough up the cash requested, or do the right thing in other matters; their mutilated bodies might wind up on the front page of the newspapers, too.
Then there is the psyche of the killer himself. Usually, the killer’s first hit makes little psychological impact on him. He doesn’t enjoy it too much, but he figures if this is to be his business of choice, he had better get used to the blood and gore, or slide into another line of work.
However, certain killers enjoy the act of killing so much, they have no qualms about carving up some poor soul’s throat and torso (or maybe both), then celebrating the hit by devouring a rare roast beef sandwich, minutes after slicing his victim into the hereafter.
In highlighting the most prolific killers in the history of New York City if not the world, this book starts with the bloody Black Hand and then pitches forward a decade later to the Boys from Brownsville, who morphed into the greatest death machine in the history of America: Murder Incorporated, better known as Murder Inc.
So fire up your Kindle, pour yourself a glass of your favorite beverage, and enjoy the most vicious killers ever to prowl the streets of New York City.

However – a word of caution. While reading, stay away from rare roast beef sandwiches, dripping in blood.
They might not go down too well.

Another 5-star review for “The Wrong Man: Who Ordered The Murder Of Gambler Herman Rosenthal And Why.”

Posted in criminals, crooks, Gangs, gangsters, mobs, Mobsters, New York City, organized crime, police, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 12, 2014 by Joe Bruno's Blogs

Another 5-star review for “The Wrong Man: Who Ordered The Murder Of Gambler Herman Rosenthal And Why.”
5.0 out of 5 stars
Powerful read!
By Amazon Customer TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition

“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.
