Discover the post-mortem histories of Elvis, Groucho Marx, Charlie Chaplin, Thomas Paine, Alexander the Great, Eva Peron, Graham Parsons, Che Guevara, Albert Einstein, and others who were not allowed to rest in peace.

I never knew that grave robberies still happened, let alone to famous folks. The stories in this book range from Alexander the Great to Einstein. One would think that this would be a typical gross out book about rotting corpses and graveyard shenanigans. Surprisingly, the author takes a hard look at the human elements of each crime and tries to put them in a historical perspective. A must read for true crime fans.
