Revue de presse

“Bruno puts his writing talents to white-knuckle use with a tight focus on a killer with no human feelings.”—Kirkus Reviews
 
“Excellent . . . [re-creates] the tension and stress Polifrone experienced in fulfilling his risky undercover assignment.”—Publishers Weekly

Présentation de l'éditeur

Soon to be a major motion picture starring Michael Shannon, Winona Ryder, with Ray Liotta and Chris Evans
 
He was smart, merciless, and deadly. And it took someone just as tough to bring him down.
 
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 more 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 his own crimes, and to satisfy his inner rage. Law enforcement officials knew all about Kuklinski and had a list of his victims, but couldn’t get near him—until undercover agent Dominick Polifrone posed as a mobster and began a deadly game of cat and mouse.
 
In this harrowing true-crime account, Anthony Bruno delves into the mind of a cold-blooded killer, chronicling the Iceman’s grisly crimes and probing the bizarre dynamics of Agent Polifrone’s dangerous liaison 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 too.

Par BAGRATION COMMENTATEUR DU HALL D'HONNEUR le 8 juin 2013
Format: Format Kindle
L'interview de ce tueur sur You Tube est dérangeante...Cet homme n'éprouve rien...Il est hors de d'une conscience qu'il n'a pas, considère que tuer est nécessaire et que tous les moyens sont bons....c'est un professionnel du meurtre comme d'autres sont des professionnels de la critique culinaire, des bottes sur mesure ou de la vente de cigares cubains. Il détaille sans forfanterie ses méthodes, ses moyens, ses entraînements. On dirait de la dissection entomologique.

La bande-annonce du film exprime très bien cette attitude. On y croise deux autres tueurs : Robert Prongey et Roy DeMeo...ainsi qu'une sept familles qui "tenaient" New-York, la famille Gambino. On est très loin du "Parrain" et des"Affranchis", on est dans la réalité de la violence pure et dure.

L'idée est simple : il vaut mieux éviter des gens de cet acabit sinon l'espérance devient brutalement très courte.

P.S. : Les flics qui font tomber des gangsters de ce tonneau ont vraiment des....Faut vouloir...

C'est une chose qui déjà me dérange énormément. Au final, on ne sait plus ce qui est "real-life" et ce qui est "fiction". Je préfère largement une simple explications des faits.
De plus, j'ai lu 24 pages, et l'auteur arrange déjà l'histoire en sa faveur. Il parle d'un meurtre qui n'a pas existé, qui de la bouche même de Kulinski était une bagarre pour se défendre, où il a pris une barre pour attaquer 6 intimidateurs. Bien évidemment, l'auteur transforme ça en 1 vs 1 qui fini par le meutre par Kuklinski.

This book portrayed the Iceman so clearly, some parts were hard to think about. His personality, the fear he struck in others, he comes alive in these pages. His family was absolutely trapped. His wife lived on a razor's edge between the caring, generous husband and the bellowing, raging giant who broke her nose. That was his good side....he loved his wife. His "love" brought pain and terror. (Knowing something about this myself, it got a little too close) I LIKE knowing he is put away and will never get out. I have the utmost gratitude and respect for the officers who brought him down and brought him to justice, for all their hard work. How fortunate we are to have all these great people who devote their lives, and risk their lives, to stand between us and danger.
Now I need to go read something light and funny.

A "totally chilling" story about a brutal man who did so many brutal murders, I've lost count. A fascinating look at the wonderful undercover operations and all it took to finally bring him down. It took YEARS to being this man to justice ~ if there is such a thing for what he's done, but the men who took on that job should be MOST HIGHLY COMMENDED for what they did ~ at the risk of loosing their own lives. The sad part is the family of "The Iceman", who had NO idea of what was really going on. I feel for his wife and children.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Watch the Film and then Read the Book 10 septembre 2013
Par California Dreaming - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I watched the film that was adapted from this book last week, and liked it so much that I had to read this book. It's pretty difficult to decide which one was better, as I am giving both five stars.

I will admit, reading a non-fiction book makes it far more difficult to appreciate a film on the same topic. "The book was so much better" seems to be a common refrain, and it seems that most people almost always have this opinion. Directors and screenwriters change little pieces of the story, often for seemingly no good reason. For example, in the movie, I believe that "Mr. Softie" -- the partner of Richard Kuklinski that drove an ice cream truck -- was killed by the Iceman on a park bench and left there to be found later. In the book, it appears that Mr. Softie was killed in his own ice cream truck, probably in one of his storage spaces, and then left hanging out the purchasing window. Why was it changed? And more importantly, does it really matter?

And a book always gives more detail than a film. In this book, you get most of the background information about the man who investigated Mr. Kuklinski for almost two years: Dominick Polifrone. In the movie, you get very little of this information and he is really just a supporting actor with supporting screen time. (By the way: when you read the book, you will, or at least should, gain unbelievable respect for Mr. Polifrone. While the mob hates his guts and most likely wants him dead, he has risked his life -- and surely far worse -- in his quest to take down some pretty bad guys.)

And there are many other reasons why a book is seemingly always better than a film. But in reality, comparing books and movies is like comparing apples and oranges. A book can be almost any length, although most are kept to 500 pages or less; a movie, while it may be longer, is generally limited to two hours due to both American audience impatience and for the size of one DVD. And this difference is not small; when a book is adapted as a screenplay it requires the screenwriter to cut out anything that is deemed unnecessary, even details sometimes that are important. There just isn't the time in a film to tell it all.

I could go on and on how good this book is, and I would have a point. The writing is really good, especially for true crime. (While I "enjoy" true crime, the writers, outside of perhaps Jack Olsen, just usually aren't that good. I highly recommend taking a peek at his web site where he discussed this point himself while still alive.) I could discuss ad nauseum how nerve wracking it is while the reader becomes almost as scared as Mr. Polifrone for his own life, even his family. But instead and more importantly, I will make the following assertion: books and movies are different media, and people should stop comparing them the way they do. It isn't fair, and it isn't productive. Personally, I like both media myself, and they both have a place.

I read part of a review I think where someone exclaimed, "Read the book first and then watch the movie!" I think he got it reversed, and I would say, "Watch the film and then read the book." That way, while watching the film, you won't get bogged down in minutiae that is just not that important. But I definitely recommend them both, as I'm going 5 stars on the book and 5 stars on the movie.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Richard Kuklinski a six foot five inch 300 plus pound mad who lived a life of crime from dubbing porn to theft to the worst crim 15 avril 2016

This book about the iceman, Richard Kuklinski a six foot five inch 300 plus pound mad who lived a life of crime from dubbing porn to theft to the worst crime a human can commit murder and not just one murder but hundreds so many he cant give an exact number. This book really captured my imagination and gave me a different outlook on some of the things Richard has done. I don't want to say I'm a fan but I find Richard very interesting and would say I am pretty well read on him and some of the crimes he has been apart of. I thought the style of this book worked well because it outlined his life and then dove deep into his mind and picked and pulled to get a different look at some of the horrible things he has done in his life from his childhood to his first murder to the day he was captured It was the full picture. I would recommend this book to anyone who's as fascinated about serial killers as I am and just the everyday reader that wants to be hit with a dose of true unfiltered horror.

This man was so into killing people it was just awful so now that he is prison maybe he will time to think he would never get caught because he trusted the one who actually put him away. The sad part is his family will always have it over their heads unless they change their name, I know I certainly would
