"Villains, Scoundrels, and Rogues: Incredible True Tales of Mischief and Mayhem" by Paul Martin

'Villains, Scoundrels, and Rogues: Incredible True Tales of Mischief and Mayhem' by Paul Martin

★★★★ Paul Martin's book introduces readers to 30 Americans of dubious character. Included in this line-up are killers, cannibals, gangsters, confidence men, traitors, spies, crooked cops, witch hunters, quack doctors, gold-diggers and the world's most inept bodyguard, John Parker; just ask President Lincoln! Martin's book is an entertaining and informative look at some people you definitely don't want to spend time with...ever!
