More About the Author

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.'"

*****

Joe Bruno says, "I agree wholeheartedly with Mathew J. Mari's assessments.

And Matty, thanks for the kind words. The check is in the mail."

Joe Bruno's five-part series "Mobsters, Gangs, Crooks, and Other Creeps," finished runner-up in the 2013 eFestival of Words Best of the Independent Ebook Awards in the category "Nonfiction."

Format: Paperback
This first novel by Joseph Bruno is set in New York City in the 1980s
when the crime rate was at an all-time high and the crack epidemic was
running rampant. Against this background, Detective Bill Kelly is
looking for a serial killer who is specifically targeting drug
dealers.
This is a fast and easy read with a variety of stock
characters that readers will find familiar. In addition to
hard-drinking cops, priests, corrupt officials and drug addicts, there
are the really bad guys whose acts of violence made me wince.
I
found myself caught up in the story as it moved along, reading quickly
to see what would happen next. The reader knows who the killer is
early on but it is interesting to see how he will be caught as the
tension mounts.
I do wish that the book had been edited better; I
found the typos distracting. And it even made a difference in my
understanding of the plot.
Police procedural fans might enjoy this
book. And Mr. Bruno is certainly an author to watch as he develops
his craft.

By Jean Kilgallen on November 6, 2000
Format: Paperback
I know Mr. Bruno's writings from his boxing columns .... His boxing columns are always caustic and quite funny. In Angel of Death, Mr. Bruno writes about a serial killer loose in New York City. This killer is unique in the fact that the victims are all drug dealers. Bill Kelly, the detective in charge of finding the killer, has a daughter whoŐs a drug addict and the implication here is that Detective Kelly may not try too hard to find the killer after all. That is, if Kelly isnŐt the killer serial himself. The brilliant cast of characters range from KellyŐs mentor, Catholic priest Father OŐBrien, a crusty old coot for sure, to NY City Police Commissioner Abraham Williams, a man obsessed with becoming the next mayor. The bad guy drug dealers may be the most interesting characters in the book. They including Willie Boy Walker, a stone killer from the island of Jamaica, to Lily Tang, a bisexual Asian beauty with a heart of stone. I highly recommend this book to mystery lovers, and the laughs Mr. Bruno injects throughout the book in no way takes away from the horror and the suspense.
