I can count how many books I thought were five stars - and in my opinion this is a definite 'Five Star'.
Great book for those who like to read about the Mafia. The Ice Man is brutality straight forward ... tells it like it was and does not offer up excuses or asks for sympathy - NONE!
The Ice Man (Richard Kuklinski) picked the right profession for a serial killer - a Mafia Hit man. This man was not mentally stable and tries throughout his life to understand why such gruesome killings had no effect on his psyche!
The book not only details his Mafia hits and strange association with the Mob but is also straight forward about his numerous senseless (serial) killings and his dedication and love (albeit strange) for his family.
Carlo's writing is terrific - I was not able to set this book down.

I've finally finished this book about Richard Kuklinskiâ. The infumus serial killer that was a hit man. He tortured his victims in many ways, killed them quickly. How ever the contractor wanted or how Richard felt when the person annoyed him enough. Richard had two sides, the overly nice side, and the side you don't want to know. In this book you see that side and what created him.

If you like true stories this is a must!

The best confessional book to come out about a Mafia contract killer. The subject of the book is one Richard Kuklinski, a stone cold killer who murdered without remorse or pity. The matter of fact descriptions of the set ups and murders of his victims will keep you reading all night long. His run of murders were the subject of three HBO specials in the late 1990s. This is a story of a man who enjoyed killing and enjoyed trying new ways to commit the murders even taking ideas from some of the cartoons being shown on tv at the time. if you want to see inside a maniacal killers thoughts and actions then you need to read this book.

This was such a good book! Richard Kuklinski also did a few interviews for HBO. This is a bit disturbing but VERY hard to put down!!

This is an insightful and scary look at one of America's most vicious hit man.
He was relentless, creative and stone cold.
Well written book that is fascinating in its exposition of the sociopathic mind of Richard Kulinski
