By Linda Linguvic HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on November 29, 2000
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
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.
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.

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 whoÕs 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 isnÕt the killer serial himself. The brilliant cast of characters range from KellyÕs mentor, Catholic priest Father OÕBrien, 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.
