GREAT AUTHOR!! By Patricia Taylor
I have read five books by Joe Bruno and I am indeed hooked. I can't wait to read more. One of the best writers ever!

"The Wrong Man: Who Ordered The Murder Of Gambler Herman Rosenthal And Why" by Joe Bruno is an excellently written account of the murder of the title and the court case that followed. Written in a gripping narrative this reads as easily as a compelling thriller.
Clearly well researched and confident about court proceedings at the times and about the facts, the author tells the story of what may have been a great miscarriage of justice. The fact that this has actually happened exactly 100 years ago but is about real people and events had a huge impact on me during the read.
The author did well with holding back his own conclusions until the end with great journalistic skill. Short and concise this is a great and powerful read.
From the Author
"The Wrong Man" explains how this all happened, and who benefited from Becker's conviction and execution.
You'd be shocked, surprised, and sickened at how easily an innocent man, albeit a crooked cop, could be framed.
If it could happen to Lieut. Charles Becker, it could happen to any one of us.
A sobering thought, indeed.
