When I read the biographies of criminals in Jay Nash’s World Encyclopedia of Organized Crime and Carl Sifakis’s Mafia Encyclopedia, I was amazed at the number of murders attributed to certain mobsters. I sometimes think that if all these murders were really committed there wouldn’t be anyone left on the planet (a slight exaggeration).

One of the more prolific murderers was Charlie Workman, variously known as "The Bug," "The Powerhouse," and "Handsome Charlie." He was rumored to have dispatched 20 individuals.
