Editorial Reviews

Review

"...addictive fun." (JOANNE OSTROW Denver Post)

About the Author

Thomas J. Craughwell is an author and problem solver. He traced the evolution of Manhattan urban legends (Alligators in the Sewer); sorted out fact from fiction in old wives tales (Do Blue Bedsheets Bring Babies?); identified the patron saints of bloggers, vegetarians and hangovers (This Saint Will Change Your Life); and resurrected a long-forgotten story from 1876, when a gang of hapless Irish immigrant counterfeiters tried to kidnap the body of Abraham Lincoln--and almost got away with it (Stealing Lincoln's Body). Tom lives in Bethel, Connecticut.

Format: Paperback
I bought this book to kill time on a flight. I didn't look up for two hours! Not just celebrities, this book includes politicians, sports stars, and just plain lousy criminals. A very fun read.

By Joseph H. Race VINE VOICE on November 5, 2011
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A fun book to flip through when you have leisure time and don't have to think very intensely or seriously. They're all here - Geronimo, Richard Gere, Dennis Hopper,Lizzie Borden,The ScottboroBoys, and many others. In the past, you could escape scrutiny in books and the internet, but no more. You are on the front page before the mug shot dries (a public document). I enjoyed putting faces on the names - many historical figures here - now we can see what they looked like, at least at the time of their arrests. Who are Mohammed Ajmal Amir Kasab or Jacques Mesrine? Check out the book to see their charges and dates, and what their "mugs" looked like.
