Evil Families : A History of Bad Blood Paperback / softback

Part of the Arcturus True Crime Series series


Is it true that the apple never falls far from the tree?

Throughout history, you see examples where criminality seems to run in the family.

From the Ptolemaic dynasty that terrorized Greek Egypt to the modern mafia, familial ties often dictate your relationship to violence, cruelty and the law. Evil Families examines just this, using case studies from across history.

These include the Qing Dynasty of Ancient China, the cannibalistic Beane family in 15th century Scotland, the Stafflebacks of Kansas and the Messina brothers of London's West End.

This book is about murder, madness, lust and ruthless ambition, as well as those devastating cases where family members gang up and cause harm to their own relatives. Everyone strives to protect their own family, but what cruelties are concealed by these bonds of blood?
