"After Mike Tozzi assassinates three bad guys who have escaped law, the Manhattan FBI office sends Tozzi's retired partner, Bert Gibbons, to locate the renegade agent and "neutralize" him. Tozzi converts Gibbons, however, and the two subsequently search for a double agent in the FBI office. With the traitor's aid, a Mafia crook has built up a successful narcotics ring and has executed several FBI agents. First novelist Bruno effectively infuses his work with a grimy, ruthless immediacy and serious tone well suited to thugs and undercover agents. Deeply involving, but fraught with profanity, explicit sex, and gory violence. REK" -- Library Journal. Copyright 1988 Reed Business Information, Inc

Immortal monster by Anthony Bruno( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

(A 62-page True Crime Short with photographs) Contract killer, lethal scam artist, loving father, abusive husband, abused son, convicted murderer, jailhouse schemer, liar, TV star. The man they called "The Iceman" was all of those. In 1988 he was sentenced to life for four gruesome murders, but this was just the tip of his iceberg. He had a taste for esoteric methods of death--favoring a cyanide solution in a nasal spray bottle--and body disposal--freezing one of his victims to disguise the time of death. At one point he bragged that his personal body count was over 200, seven times the more likely number. Still, he has huge following, and a biopic based on his life is about to start shooting this fall. The Iceman told his story in three extremely popular HBO documentaries, which are still broadcast regularly. Why does the Iceman's story continue to fascinate the public five years after his death and 25 years after his apprehension? And how much of his legend is truth?
The Roppongi stalker by Anthony Bruno( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

(A 58-page True Crime Short with photographs) When his last victim was found, she was buried in a cave, her dismembered limbs wrapped in plastic garbage bags, her head encased in a block of concrete. The tall blond 21-year-old from the United Kingdom had worked in a Tokyo hostess bar. The killer was a Japanese playboy/real-estate developer with a taste for young gaijin women. He had stalked Tokyo's sex districts for years, paying for the company of modern-day geishas and then inviting his favorites on dates, drugging them, and raping them while he videotaped what he called his "conquest play." He eventually became so adept at using date-rape drugs most of his victims never knew what had happened to them. But something went terribly wrong with the English girl. Investigators would discover that eight years earlier he had killed a young Australian beauty with an accidental overdose of chloroform while raping her. He was finally caught thanks to the bulldog tenacity of the English girl's father, but the families of his foreign victims never anticipated the odd laws that govern the Japanese criminal justice system. It would take ten years before the case was resolved and the atrocities committed by "the beast with a human face" were fully revealed
