Samenvatting

A top mafia hitman recounts his thirty-year career before landing in prison, describing his relationship with John Gotti, his assignments to kill more than two hundred victims, and his outside persona as a suburban family man. By the author of The Night Stalker. Reprint. 100,000 first printing.

Recensie(s)

Carlo (The Night Stalker) has written another captivating true-crime book. This one tells the spine-chilling story of Richard Kuklinski, a.k.a. the Ice Man -because he liked to freeze his victims to throw off forensic investigators. Born into an abusive family, Kuklinski claimed to have killed for the first time at age 14. After a run-in with the Gambino family, he became a hit man for the mob, managing to live the double life of a professional assassin and devoted family man. The author spent over 200 hours interviewing the incarcerated Kuklinski and his family. If one is to believe Kuklinski, he killed upward of 200 individuals, including Jimmy Hoffa, Carmine Galante, and Roy DeMeo. It was only through the diligent work of New Jersey police officer Pat Kane, who spent six years building a case against Kuklinski, that the killing spree ended. This work is written like a novel; readers will become so engrossed in the details that they'll forget that this is a true story. Highly recommended for readers of true crime; perhaps the finished version of this book will provide the update that Kuklinski died on March 5, 2006, at age 70 of natural causes.-- Michael Sawyer, Rangeview Lib. District, Thornton, CO (Library Journal)

    Geschreven bij The Ice Man

    This is by far the best book I have ever read. I really had a hard time putting the book down while I should have been working. The way Carlo describes Kuklinski's history, activities, and 'feelings' is truly breathtaking. While chronologically the book could have been better put together - it starts with a scene where he is feeding live people to rats, something he started doing only later in his career, only to flash back to his childhood and really start the story - it is still easy to read. I became aware of Kuklinski by seeing the HBO documentaries about him, and I immediately became interested, intrigued. When I figured out there was a book about him too, I just had to have it - and I never regretted it, in fact it was the best money ever spent on a book. Mark my words, you will not be bored reading this book ever! While thus far I have not yet seen a Dutch translation, interested readers will have to make due with the original, English version.
