Overview

There are plenty of misguided, violent, and unpleasant people in the world, but how many can be classified as truly evil? In this hard-hitting collection, acclaimed author Nigel Cawthorne examines 10 of the most sickeningly twisted men who are still alive today. Some of them, like serial killer Dennis Nilsen and cult leader Charles Manson, are thankfully behind bars. Others, including the world’s most wanted terrorist, Osama bin Laden, are still at large. Unbelievably, one of them, Robert Mugabe, is still clinging to the reins of power and continues to inflict suffering and economic mayhem on the desperate people of Zimbabwe.

Inside this book is the gut-twisting story of Charles Taylor, the blood-soaked African general who has "recruited" thousands of child soldiers, and one of the most shocking cases of recent years: that of Josef Fritzl, the Austrian man who imprisoned and sexually abused his own daughter for almost 25 years.
