About The Book

Be careful whom you cross--they may have read this book!

Killed with a toilet? Deadly belt buckles? Sexed to death?  Untimely Demise is a darkly comedic exploration of the 365 most fascinating ways people have offed one another since the beginning of time, from ninja swords to pernicious poisons, mobster murders to sneaky sabotage—and everything in between. The deadly details of 365 dastardly, mundane, ritualistic and just plain bizarre ways people have murdered one another are revealed in this darkly humorous--and surprisingly informative--cautionary collection. Whether you love a good whodunit or solve real-life murders for a living, this daily dose of dastardly deeds will shock and amaze you! Or, at least, remind you to lock your doors at night.
