    Richard "The Ice Man" Kuklinski led a double life beyond anything ever seen on The Sopranos, becoming one of the most notorious professional assassins in American history while hosting neighborhood barbecues in suburban New Jersey. Now, after 240 hours of face-to-face interviews with Kuklinski and his wife and daughters, author Philip Carlo tells his extraordinary story.

    Overall

    The author took what could be an interesting story and tortured it to death. The book is 19 hours long and much of the material is repeated throughout. The dialog between characters is amateurish and sounds as if Kuklinski wrote it himself. Many of the deeds he claims happened are hard to believe. Sorry for the spoiler, but ripping a car door off it's hinges with his bare hands is just one example. Most of it sounds like the school yard bully or high school football hero reliving his glory days, exaggerating his feats and bolstering his own ego. The narrator tries to get the voices and inflections down, but I thought he only added to the amateurish sound of the book. He'd be better off reading the evening news then narrating a novel. I made it halfway through the second part and started looking for another book to download.
