For this vivid, detailed, fascinating account of crimes and criminals — from con men to murderers — Peter McGahan has gathered his information from newspapers and official records. He tells the stories of the outcasts, vagabonds, rogues, cheating husbands, thieves, and killers, who have populated the darker corners of Maritime history.
