Description

In this wickedly humorous book, Geoffrey Abbott describes the effectiveness of instruments of torture and reveals the macabre origins of familiar phrases such as 'gone west' and 'drawing a blank.' Covering everything from the preparation of the victim to the disposal of the body, What a Way to Go is everything you ever wanted to know about the ultimate penalty - and a lot you never thought to ask.
