Iceman: The True Story of a Cold Blooded Killer

If you're a true crime story lover, this is the book for you. Quite fascinating. A hitman by profession, but also a family man who gets the job done. This guy was NO serial killer. Yeah, it was a dirty job - but somebody had to do it.

should be called'Dominic'

Bruno seems to be more interested in the man who brought down Kuklinski than in the man himself. Bruno needs to do a follow up interview with kuklinski, his mindset, does his family still talk to him,dealing in prison etc.

    Great read however

    Great read how ever a killer the iceman is misclassifed as he is not like typical serial killers. They common thing here is based of that most if not all serial killers have a sexual tendinces done to there victams. The icemans killings did not and said that it was just his job. How ever i still reccomand this to read

    Bruno delivers a terrific biography of the brutal life of Richar

    Bruno delivers a terrific biography of the brutal life of Richard Kuklinsky in this awesome book. His fictional style reads like a phenomenal crime novel, so I can't wait to read some of Bruno's other non-biographical work. A must read for anyone who has seen either one of the two HBO documentaries or the movie, this book will not disappoint.

    Killer or Gentle Giant?

    This is a book about a man who wanted one life, a family and home but had to have another life to get it. Mr. Kuklinski is not a pathological killer. He was a business man. If we don't liked what he has done then why do we all watch the Sopranos. The characters we admire in this show are the same and no different from Richard Kuklinski's world.

    Almost as good as true crime gets!

    I first read this book back in '95 or '96, and I just reread it in April 2004 after having visited Kuklinski's cell-block the previous summer. The novel works both as a gripping narrative, and as a factual record of the acts of one of NJ's most prolific killers. Through the novel, the reader will also experience the highways and towns of New Jersey in a way that will please any fan of true crime novels, and especially fans of the HBO series, 'The Sopranos.' It's just a shame that the book is out of print.

    World's Greatest Hitman

    If you're interested in reading about murderers, then this book is for you. Richard is one the most creative mass murderers in the 20th century. This is a must have!!

    Iceman: The True Story of a Cold Blooded Killer

    This is an excellent book. Un-put-downable! If anyone knows how to tell a fascinating story of interest, Bruno has done it with the Iceman. Richard was no "serial killer" - killing was actually his job. Richard Kuklinski is definitely a "quiet storm".
