Overview

One of humanity's greatest unspoken fears is having our mortal remains desecrated in the grave. These fears reach as far back as the ancient Egyptians and are as close at hand as today's headlines. Skullduggery examines 45 real life tales of those who would disturb the dead's eternal slumber. 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. The motivations for these ghoulish crimes range from greed and avarice to pure affection. Once you step into the world of Skullduggery, you will never pass by a cemetery at night without considering what forces are at work in the dark.

    Fascinating and Creepy

    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.
