Bloody, violent, and sometimes spectacularly stage-managed, assassinations have become shocking landmarks in modern history, distinguished by their careful planning and cold-hearted detachment.Author Charlotte Greig explores some of the most notorious assassinations in history, looking in depth at the killers, their motives, and the impact the deaths of victims had on society. She investigates the controversies that have arisen where the killers' motives have been unclear or their ability to organize such a crime unaided has been questionable.From the assassinations of Rasputin, Franz Ferdinand, and John F. Kennedy to Gianni Versace, John Lennon, Benazir Bhutto, and Martin Luther King - along with near misses on Ronald Reagan, Andy Warhol, Margaret Thatcher, and Sergei Skripal - this fascinating book gives you the inside track on the drama, horror, and bloody aftermath of assassinations, some of which have changed the course of history.
