In this compendium of weird and wacky criminal cases, Canada's most popular crime columnist brings us more than fifty murders from eleven countries around the world.

Meet Jerry Rosenberg, America's foremost jailhouse lawyer. While in prison for the murder of two New York police officers, he earned a law degree. He now has a lively practice representing other prisoners. Meet Norman "Red" Ryan, convicted of armed bank robbery but who was so reformed after serving a portion of his sentence that they changed Canadian law so he could be released early--only to have his life come to an ironic end when he was gunned down in an armed robbery. Meet Herbert McAuliffe, whose counterfeiting scheme in Canadian coins came to an abrupt end with his realization that it was costing more to produce the coins than he was making in profits. Turning to bank robbery, his string of bad luck continued.

This is another surefire collection from Canada's master of true crime!
