A humorous look at how famous people got caught, including Joan of Arc, Blackbeard, Al Capone, and more! Outlaw, assassin, art thief, and spy, these fourteen troublemakers and crooks -- including Blackbeard the pirate, Typhoid Mary, and gangster Al Capone -- have given the good guys a run for their money throughout the ages. Some were crooked, some were deadly, and some were merely out of line -- but they all got caught as detailed in this fascinating and funny study of crime, culture, and forensic science.
