Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Arranged alphabetically, entries describe crimes by and against celebrities and the wealthy. Crimes, criminals, victims, lawyers, scandals, prisons, and associated locations and circumstances are all represented, granting the work an intense diversity. A quick trip through the B's, for example, familiarizes the reader with defense attorney F. Lee Bailey, the Reverend Jim Bakker, Mayflower Madam Sydney Biddle Barrows, the Benson family murders, draft dodger Grover Cleveland Bergdoll, journalist Meyer Berger, anarchist Alexander Berkman, the Black Sox scandal, the Bloomington-Morgan affair, Bonnie and Clyde, Lizzie Borden, and the Burr-Hamilton duel.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
