Reviews

"This mug-shot history captures the ugliness and the nobility of the past century in stark flashes of evil, strength, and human frailty. Frame by frame you will stare into the eyes of the unfortunate and the powerful. There's a dark and tragic beauty that grows as your eyes shift from one mug to the next. Pick this book up and don't look away." -Andrew Mattson, co-author of The Bobbed Haired Bandit
