Villains are called bandits, highwaymen, or outlaws. They rob, murder, and perform other evil acts for a variety of twisted reasons. This book introduces readers to some of the most notorious villains to ever live. Readers see the bloodstained trail that these men and women have left throughout history, including corrupt Renaissance families and Wild West robbers. Accessible text brings readers face-to-face with incredibly infamous figures, such as the gangster Al Capone and grave robbers Burke and Hare. Vibrant cartoon illustrations accompany these fascinating facts, allowing readers to see the dark side of history in a way that is both enlightening and entertaining.
