How many people did Agatha Christie kill with her pen? What was Jack the Ripper's supposed occupation? And why is Adelaide, Australia, called the "City of Corpses?" With chapters devoted to each of the seven deadly sins, this witty book features trivia about fictional favorites like Sherlock Holmes, Philip Marlowe, and Hannibal Lechter, as well as real-life villains Grigori Rasputin, Lizzie Borden, and Ted Bundy. Also included are classic first lines from whodunnits, intriguing lists ("Dos and Don'ts of Burying a Victim"), and a wealth of quotations from such figures as Alfred Hitchcock, John Mortimer, and W.H. Auden.
