A uniquely canadian gift
For your unique Valentine.
The history you weren't taught in school.
Tales of murder and mayhem, plots and poisonings, villains and victims.
Crimes that made the newspaper headlines but not the history books.
Drop Dead: A Horrible History of Hanging in Canada is the most "unusual, engrossing, riveting, enthralling" book you'll come across.
Encounter alcoholic executioners, nervous sheriffs, hanging judges, wrongful convictions, and unruly mobs.
With precise mathematical formulae and physics at the foundation of hangings, what could possibly go wrong?
Quite a lot, it turns out...
