Murder. Chaos. Outrage. This was the mode in Texas' capital city, Austin
from 1884 to 1885. The city had been haunted by a string of bloody
murders. Women were not just killed--they were dragged alive from their
beds, taken outside where they were often tortured and then murdered.
Six of the victims, all women, were found dead with sharp objects
inserted in their ears.

As horrifying as the murders were,
what's more horrifying is that the person who committed these heinous
acts of violence was never found. To this day it remains one of the most
famous unsolved crimes. It has long been suspected by several noted
historians that the real killer may have been none other than Jack the
Ripper.

Written with gripping, page turning suspense, this book
brings you back in time to Austin, Texas, so you can experience the
horror and panic for yourself. Faint at heart turn away!

Philip Carlo
Philip Carlo's The Ice Man spent over six weeks on the New York Times Bestseller List. Top Mob Hitman. Devoted Family Man. Doting Father. For thirty years, Richard "The Iceman" Kuklinski led a shocking double life, becoming the most notorious professional assassin in American history while happily hosting neighborhood barbecues in suburban New Jersey.

Richard Kuklinski was Sammy the Bull Gravano's partner in the killing of Paul Castellano, then head of the Gambino crime family, at Sparks Steakhouse. Mob boss John Gotti hired him to torture and kill the neighbor who accidentally ran over his child. For an additional price, Kuklinski would make his victims suffer; he conducted this sadistic business with coldhearted intensity and shocking efficiency, never disappointing his customers. By his own estimate, he killed over two hundred men, taking enormous pride in his variety and ferocity of technique.

This trail of murder lasted over thirty years and took Kuklinski all over America and to the far corners of the earth, Brazil, Africa, and Europe. Along the way, he married, had three children, and put them through Catholic school. His daughter's medical condition meant regular stays in children's hospitals, where Kuklinski was remembered, not as a gangster, but as an affectionate father, extremely kind to children. Each Christmas found the Kuklinski home festooned in colorful lights; each summer was a succession of block parties.

His family never suspected a thing.

Richard Kuklinski is now the subject of the major motion picture titled "The Iceman"(2013), starring James Franco, Winona Ryder, Ray Liotta, and Chris Evans.
