Robert Kennedy Jr.’s new book “Framed,” says exactly the opposite of what I say in my new book “The Mysterious Murder of Martha Moxley: Did the Political and Financial Power of the Kennedy/Skakel Families Trump the Truth?”

I maintain that his cousin, Michael Skakel, is guilty as sin of killing 15-year-old Martha Moxley in 1975. In fact, it’s a disgrace it took that long to convict him (he was found guilty of Martha’s murder in 2002).

RFK Jr. says about a dozen people, including his two family lawyers, conspired to frame his cousin, 27 years after the murder. He names several possible killers, but then, without a scintilla of proof, he settles on two African-Americans as the killers.

So much for RFK Jr. being politically correct.

Kennedy spent who-knows-how-much money to hire eight people to help him write his book (he mentions all eight in his acknowledgements at at the beginning of his books).

I, except for a proofreader, went solo.

RFK Jr. has been on numerous national TV programs, including “Dateline,” to promote his book. Plus, he’s been in scores of daily newspapers, also promoting his book.

I have done neither.

Unlike RFK Jr., I don’t have the connections; I don’t have the cash.

Still, our sales numbers are remarkable similar. My book is ranked anywhere from 12,000 to 10,000 in the the Amazon Kindle ratings (out of 5 million books). RFK’s book is ranked from 9,000 to 8,000 in the same rankings.

His book sells for $15.33 on Amazon Kindle; mine sells for a mere $4.99. Plus I throw in a free book tacked on to the end of the first book – “JULIUS AND ETHEL ROSENBERG – SPIES OR SCAPEGOATS?”

Plus, my book is FREE with Kindle Unlimited!

Considering all of the above, I don’t think I will ever be on RFK’s Christmas card list. 🙂

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.”

5.0 out of 5 stars
Knockout!

Format: Kindle Edition

Being English I wasn’t really interested in the goings-on of the American Labour Unions or indeed the existence of Jimmy Hoffa. But I do know and love Joe Bruno’s works. But I do know of the existence of organised crime and the Mafia. I have read many of Joe’s books and cannot recall a single one that I failed to enjoy.

It is quite obvious to me that this work is very well researched and put together and certainly kept me totally enthralled.

Simply a great read!
