Abstract:

"There have been hundreds of books on famous assassinations, but nearly all have focused on the victims rather than the assassins themselves. Until now, there has never been a single source for the life stories of assassins throughout history: the infamous and the overlooked, the madmen and the zealots, the incompetent and the ruthlessly efficient, those who failed and those who succeeded in their dark tasks. The Book of Assassins is an enlightening and entertaining reference book for true-crime fans, historians, and anyone interested in those who committed - or attempted to commit - some of the world's most heinous crimes."--BOOK JACKET.
