It's impossible to deny it... as much as we hate criminals for the things they do, and fear their terrible crimes more than anything else... we are all fascinated by people who do bad things.

In this collection of short stories about real people, you will meet some of the most evil, most daring and most interesting criminals from history. Read about Guy Fawkes and his plot to kill the King of England by blowing up the House of Lords; and the captain of the slave ship the Zong, a man who did unspeakable things to his fellow man. Learn about Rasputin, the Mad Monk, and the strange power that he held over the Russian royal family; and Ronnie Biggs, the great train robber, and how he was caught and then escaped from prison. You will also come face to face with two of the most evil men in history - Colonel Gadaffi, who ruled his country, Libya, with an iron fist; and the Unabomber, a terrorist who targeted innocent people in a bombing campaign that terrified America for over twenty years.
