There were preachers who were also bigamists; policemen who were motivated by revenge; ordinary citizens who suddenly engaged in 'unnatural' acts.Indeed Killers, Thieves, Tramps & Sinners demonstrates that where crime is concerned, the boundaries are not set by geography but by the unpredictabl e impulses of men and women." - from the rear cover.
