Publisher's Summary

At home, Richard Kuklinski was a dedicated suburban family man; on the street, he was the Iceman, a professional hit man and lethal scam artist, a man so heartless he kept one of his victims frozen for over two years to disguise the time of death. His personal body count was over 100, but the police couldn’t touch him. Then undercover agent Dominick Polifrone posed as a mobster and began a deadly game of cat and mouse.
The Iceman chronicles Kuklinski’s grisly career and exposes his murderous double life.
Anthony Bruno, a crime writer, is the author of 11 crime fiction novels and four books of nonfiction true crime. His nonfiction work The Seekers: A Bounty Hunter's Story, was nominated for an Edgar Award in 2001 for best fact crime book. His novel Bad Apple was adapted for television in 2004.

Critic Reviews

" The Iceman chilleth! Not for the faint of heart but a rousing, riveting read. I read it in one (scary) gulp." (Jack Olson, author of  I: The Creation of a Serial Killer)
"Bruno has done an excellent job of re-creating the tension and stress Polifrone experienced in fulfilling his risky undercover assignment." ( Publishers Weekly)
"Smoothly written…Bruno puts his writing talents to white-knuckle use with a tight focus on a killer with no human feelings except toward his wife and three sons…. A fast-paced, suspenseful re-creation of how a vicious killer was run to ground.” ( Kirkus Reviews)

Started out promising, but...

I really loved this book in the beginning, but soon realized the material the author had to work with was pretty thin and the book soon got very boring. It was a major disappointment when it got to the trial which was wrapped up in what seemed like minutes -- a real anticlimax. The narration was entertaining in the beginning, but the "goodfella" accents got really wearing after a while. Would not recommend to anyone.

Pass on this. Narrow plot line, mildly interesting

Story was confusing in terms of all the bad guys. Very narrow plot line. Narrator was awesome however. Pass on this one.

Poor narration

Instead of this book buy The Iceman: Confessions of a Mafia Hitman by Philip Carlo

Not that good

Not as informative as the iceman chronicle or the iceman interviews. A lot of guesswork here to follow this book

First Audible

Great insight. Narrator really made it. The 8 Hour drive was so much easier and quicker.
