It's not unusual for someone to have issues with their parents, but the 15 cases profiled in this book show that sometimes they can't be resolved with a conversation. In some cases, frequent physical and metal abuse led to murder, while other cases were just mentally deranged people taking out their frustrations on the closest person available.
These short profiles show what happens when sons and daughters snap and end the lives of those who brought them into this world.

The Death Row Cookbook
The last meals of death row convicts fascinate us because they offer an insight into a disturbed mind shortly before its owner’s death. The last meal is a way for the system to offer a last minute nod to humanity; that although these murderers, rapists, and villains listed below may have performed inhuman acts, they are still indeed human.
The irony of feeding a criminal before killing them by electrocution or lethal injection is not missed on many of the inmates, as we shall see from some of their choices. Controversial and fascinating, the last meals of the condemned will continue to make headlines as long as the death penalty exists.
This book contains both a brief history of the chefs who make the meals and the stories behind the last meals of over two dozen famous death row inmates (recipes are also included, of course).

The Fighting Parson: The Life of Reverend Leslie Spracklin (Canada’s Eliot Ness)
Reverend Spracklin was a gangster’s worst nightmare. Known to the press and public as the ‘Fighting Parson’, he and his handpicked squad of dry agents burst into the roadhouses of Essex County with pistols drawn and fists clenched. They chased liquor-laden vehicles through dark city streets and along rough country roads, and intercepted rumrunners on the Detroit River in their high-powered speedboat, the Panther II.
The minister went, often alone, into the most dangerous nightspots of 1920s Windsor, and responded to opposition by punching, not preaching. He thought nothing of carrying around a stack of blank search warrants and filling them out himself as needed. He could not be scared or bought, and he survived one assassination attempt after another. It was only when a roadhouse owner who also happened to be a long-time enemy died at his hands that the campaign was finally stopped.
His life is told in this short book. Read more here.
