A really funny book that had me chuckling throughout - I actually bought it as a Christmas present, but ended up reading it myself!
It's a great book to dip in and out of since the entries are really short and there are lots of amusing cartoons dotted through it.
To give you a little taste of what's inside, and please bear in mind that the stories are true, there are
* The robbers who scrawled on their faces with black marker pen rather than wear masks as a disguise, making them look like blokes who had gone mad with felt tips rather than evil criminals - they were quickly arrested
* The getaway driver who, instead of speeding away from the scene of the crime, became the most law-abiding motorist and driving under the speed limit and allowing the police to catch up with him
* The burglar who managed to leave his passport, mobile phone, keys and a prison ID card with his photo on, at the scene of the crime.
Would make a stocking filler for that 'hard-to-buy-for' person in your family!
