The truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth about the most ludicrous criminal cases in legal history, now in a hardcover gift format
Full of riotous and entertaining stories, this book is perfect for anyone who is doing time on a long stretch. It covers the only dead parrot ever to give evidence in a court of law; one of the most indigestible dilemmas (If you'd been shipwrecked 2,000 miles from home, would you have eaten Parker the cabin boy?); the doctor with the worst bedside manner of all time; and the murderess who collected money from her mummified victim for 21 years. Readers will be gripped by these tales of murder, intrigue, crime, punishment and the pursuit of justice, tales that are in turn bizarre, macabre, and sometimes hilarious.
