Overview

In the Crosshairs looks at attempted and successful assassinations of high-profile celebrities, political figures, religious leaders, and many others. Each chapter includes a compelling account of an assassination (or attempted assassination), with complete details about the assassin, the victim, the circumstances of the attack and the outcome.

In the Crosshairs also includes a unique "assassination timeline," a list of other notable assassination attempts throughout history, photos of many of the most infamous assassins and their victims, and rare archival materials, like the John Wilkes Booth "Wanted" poster and excerpts from original police reports. He also presents intriguing details like how President Anwar Sadat probably would have survived if he hadn't taken off his bulletproof vest-he didn't like the way it made his dress suit bulge. This surprising, informative, and intriguing book will find a place on every history buff's bookshelf.
