Joe Bruno's "Mobsters, Gangs, Crooks, and Other Creeps" finished in second place (runner up) in the 2013 eFestival of Words Best of the Independent Ebook Awards in the category "Nonfiction."
Like The Don said, “Buy this book, or I'll make you an offer you can't refuse.”
“Mobsters, Gangs, Crooks, and Other Creeps - Volume 2- New York City” is not a continuation of “Mobsters, Gangs, Crooks, and Other Creeps - Volume 1- New York City,” but rather a complement to Volume I. Volume 2 starts in the time period of the early 1820's, and ends in the mid 1900's.
This is not a book about nice people. This is a book about the lowest forms of life ever to walk the face of the earth: Mafioso, murderers, con artists, prostitutes, base street thugs, crooked politicians; people who do deliciously decadent things to other people, as easy as stepping on a roach. The exception is New York City Detective Joseph Petrosino, who took on the vicious Black Hand, but lost his life in Sicily because he wasn't exactly the sharpest knife in the drawer.
“Mobsters, Gangs, Crooks, and Other Creeps - Volume 2- New York City” is not for everyone. But if you enjoy reading about mob people who are so unaffected about what they do, they can eat a hot roast beef sandwich minutes after slitting some poor guy's throat, this book is definitely for you.
Take a deep breath, fire up your Kindle, and enjoy!

Mathew J. Mari, New York City criminal lawyer for 38 years, says, "Joe Bruno and I grew up in the same neighborhood on the Lower East Side of New York City. We met and know the most of the same people, some of whom are alleged to be organized crime figures. And I emphasize the word 'alleged.'
"That's why Joe Bruno's insight and style makes it easy for the reader to understand the colorful yet brutal characters that dominated the crime scene in America for two centuries. He knows what he's talking about because he's lived through it.
Joe Bruno's mob books are 'A composite of characters and events, which weaves the denizens of the underworld with the rich history of New York City, as well as in other parts of the country.'"

I rated this book 4. for the same reason as volume one, many of the characters stories were intertwined with the result that it became a bit repetitive at times. Despite that I found the book very informative and would recommend it to anyone with an interest in true crime in New York City.
