Paperback. From court records and police files come these authentic case histories of 10 men who, though living by the law, thought they could act beyond it. All committed the irrevocable crime: murder. One was a famous Civil War general, another was a Congressman, another had been the president of a bar association, yet another had served as Minister of Justice. All, in fact, were respected socially and professionally. Collectively, they had defended, prosecuted, or sat in judgement on scores of murderers, and, in the apt words of the authors of this book, "If ever ten men should have known the nature and consequences of their acts, these were the ten." From the "crime passionel" of General Dan Sickles, to the case of the honourable Thomas John Ley, perhaps the richest man convicted of murder in England in 'modern' times, here are their startling stories. Also includes: Tom Cluverius, Albert T. Patrick, Arthur Reed Pennell, J. Samuel McCue, Donat Prilukoff, Frank Egan, Mark Shank, and Pierre Jaccoud. 189pp. p/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. V. lightly browned pp., and sl. sunned covers, o/w Nr. F. with no creasing to covers.
