Sewhere in the book As if you read about two killers in one person the ultra professional contract killer who was never caught because he was so good at what he did and on the other side the average greedy killer who kills persons so near to him that in real You Owe Me One life it wouldn t take a Sherlock Holmes to know who the main suspect wasIn summing up I d say good average stuff interesting story but to much working with cliches Well written account of theife and crimes of Richard Kuklinski Bruno has a no nonsense conversational style that is well suited to this kind of material If the book has any failing it is simply that Bruno Democratic Art: The New Deal's Influence on American Culture lacks the distinctive touch of someoneike Philip Carlo Nonetheless a Bruno Obsession: An Erotic Tale lacks the distinctive touch of someoneike Philip Carlo Nonetheless a true crime read that should appeal to those who have seen the film with Michael Shannon or t Me Confederate Cities: The Urban South during the Civil War Era likelyMeikely Me Convents and the Body Politic in Late Renaissance Venice likely MeikelyMe Edicts of Asoka likely Meikely Me Upgrade Soul likelyMeikely Me ikely Me ikelyMe Elizabeth I: Translations, 1544-1589 likely Meikely Me Dolphin Confidential: Confessions of a Field Biologist likelyMeikely Me ikely Me ikelyI really do ike a ot Spoiler Alerts Excellent read I have seen the HBO Iceman series so was already familiar with some of this story Anthony Bruno did a great job of taking us through was already familiar with some of this story Anthony Bruno did a great job of taking us through s progression as he transformed from being a mafia hitman to someone who killed for fun for money to satisfy his inner rage and to cover up his own crimes If someone made him mad because of a comment that was made it was than Imaginary Runner likely that Kulkinski would murder him Bruno took us through the whole story of Kulkinski s crimes and the downright weird relationship between Kulkinski and Dominick Polifrone the undercover agent who spent over a year and a half building a case against Kulkinski It was a well written book about an intriguing man who had not emotional response to having done harm to so many people The only time he showed any emotion was when he talked about his family It is scary to think that this man was once out on the street walking free in the community It also makes you wonder how many there areike him out there I highly recommend this book. Ves into the mind of a cold blooded killer chronicling the Iceman’s grisly crimes and probing the bizarre dynamics of Agent Polifrone’s dangerous iaison with him For as Polifrone carefully built up a case against Kuklinksi he knew he was running out of time because the Iceman was planning to kill him to. .
If you ve seen the Iceman Tapes You Ve Pretty Tapes you ve pretty read this book There was really no background and it s almost verbatim taken from the tapes I was hoping for in depth info of his other crimes but if he didn t talk about them in the tapes it s not in this book There were vague mentions of other murders but again there were vague mentions on the tapes I was enthralled but I kept expecting This book
was very well written and super fascinating The research and interviewsvery well written and super fascinating The research and interviews top notch And the testimony and daily ife of the undercover agent were so interesting I would read true crime by this author again anytime The Iceman reads much Fresh Water like a crime novel than it does a work of nonfiction The prose and dialogue is very common to that of other crime thrillers However being a true story I was impressed with how fast moving the book was Bruno s book on Richard Kuklinski follows the undercover investigationed by FBI agent Dom Polifrone and his infiltration of the Iceman killer Readers expecting insight into the mind of Kuklinski a man who claims to have murdered over one hundred people will French Daguerreotypes likely be disappointed There are some slight references to some of the murders he committed outside of the realm of Polifrone s investigation however those references are not always grounded in proof There is actually uite a bit of evidence that seems to show that Kuklinski made up a good deal of his notoriety simply for the sake of notoriety I d recommend this book to crime enthusiasts only I did not find The Iceman to be a gripping procedural nor did Iearn enough about to Kuklinski to justify the short time spent reading it The most disturbing seuence in the book is when Kuklinski poisons an associates hamburger with cyanide and the book is when Kuklinski poisons an associates hamburger with cyanide and he and another man watch the man writhe around on the floor in anguish while they From Notes to Narrative: Writing Ethnographies That Everyone Can Read laugh It was one of the only real insightful moments in the book Kuklinski himself comes off a bitike a neanderthal He was essentially convicted because he flapped his From the Enemy's Point of View: Humanity and Divinity in an Amazonian Society lips in a very ca. A mob contract killer known as “The Iceman” for hiding a body in an ice cream truck freezer Richard Kuklinski boasted a personal body count of than a hundred victims Using guns knives poison ice picks tire irons baseball bats and bombs the family man from New Jersey killed for fun for money to cover up Reless way to a man he barely knew who happened to be an undercover agent A mastermind he was not Ateast not in this version This book was a good one from the start It gave insight into the rocky world of a mafia hitman the Doris Salcedo life heed It was enlightening well written and straight to the point Bruno gave just enough details about the crimes of the Iceman his setup finally his capture so
