    At home, Richard Kuklinski was a dedicated suburban family man; on the street, he was the Iceman, a professional hit man and lethal scam artist, a man so heartless he kept one of his victims frozen for over two years to disguise the time of death. His personal body count was over 100, but the police couldn’t touch him. Then undercover agent Dominick Polifrone posed as a mobster and began a deadly game of cat and mouse. The Iceman chronicles Kuklinski’s grisly career and exposes his murderous double life.

    Story

    I really loved this book in the beginning, but soon realized the material the author had to work with was pretty thin and the book soon got very boring. It was a major disappointment when it got to the trial which was wrapped up in what seemed like minutes -- a real anticlimax. The narration was entertaining in the beginning, but the "goodfella" accents got really wearing after a while. Would not recommend to anyone.

    There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.

    Story

    This was the most ridiculous, childish book I've ever read -- or should I say listened to. The story was dumb, the characters vapid clichés, and the narration pathetic. Nate sounded like some Hardy Boys show character, Veek's accent was some mishmash of Chinese and Indian, nowhere near what it should have been. I sometimes had trouble telling Roger's voice from Tim's, etc. When it got to the crazy end section with the overseers and the slaves and the monsters, I had to force myself to listen just to see what kind of stupid ending Clines would come up with. Yikes.
