ITALIAN DESCRIPTION:
La professione del protagonista è l'omicidio su commissione: un lavoro che al servizio della mafia americana - l'uomo è in grado di eseguire con estrema precisione. Lo chiamano "The Ice Man" perché uno dei modi che predilige per impartire la morte è quello di rinchiudere le sue vittime in un congelatore, sbarazzandosi dei corpi soltanto dopo un lungo periodo di ibernazione. Ma la vera specialità di "The Ice Man" consiste nell'accontentare sempre i desideri della sua committenza e, quando la mafia desidera far morire un uomo tra le sofferenze più atroci, sa che l'omicida non si farà scrupoli nell'uccidere i malcapitati nei modi più terrificanti che una mente criminale è in grado di immaginare. Più efferata di un libro dell'orrore, la biografia di Philip Carlo si immerge nei meandri della vita del più spietato degli assassini.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION:
"The Ice Man: Confessions Of A Mafia Contract Killer": 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.
