Richard Kuklinski, aka the Ice Man, will go down as one of the most vicious killers in history. Responsible for well over 200 murders, he is the man who claims a direct link to the killing of Jimmy Hoffa and he is one of the reasons for John Gotti's rise to power. the wife of one victim referred to him as the devil. Yet behind every monster, even the most cold-blooded ones, there lies a human story. After 240 hours of face-to-face interviews with Richard Kuklinksi and even more time spent with Kuklinski's family, Philip Carlo reveals all in tHE ICE MAN. He led a double life: professional assassin and devoted family man. As described by his wife Barbara, Richard was two people. At times he was a model father that would return home with a car full of groceries and presents, and at other times he was a monster, frequently subjecting Barbara to abuse and leaving their children to watch in horror. But despite even his worst moments at home, his family never knew of his other life as a top hitman contracted by the bosses of east coast crime families. On the day Richard was arrested, the police found t one single weapon in the house. His family never knew of the nights he would meander into Manhattan's Upper West Side and brutally kill whatever panhandler stepped in his path. In short, Richard Kuklinksi may have been one of the greatest enigmas ever.
Philip Carlo was one of the world's foremost experts on serial killers and was the author of a number of other true-crime books, including the New York Times bestseller The Night Stalker, and Stolen Flower, in which he controversially investigated organised paedophile groups. He died in November 2010.
