Interview with Anthony Bruno

Anthony Bruno was the first author to delve into the twisted mind of Richard “the Iceman”
Kuklinski – Mafia assassin, lethal scam artist, and family man. For his full-length book, “The Iceman” he communicated with Kuklinski so extensively and researched his actions so thoroughly that he was able to sort out most of what was truth and what was fiction in the legend. That book is the basis for an upcoming feature film starring Ray Liotta, Chris Evans and Boardwalk Empire’s Michael Shannon as the Iceman. Bruno is serving as executive producer for the feature film. Bruno is well-grounded in the mob culture and has written about it extensively.

In 1995, Bruno wrote Seven: The Novelization based on the hit feature film starring Brad Pitt, Morgan Freeman, and Gwyneth Paltrow. Bruno wrote virtually all the stories about organized crime on Time Warner’s Crime Library.
