Synopsis

Dreadful Fates by Tracey Turner

From grisly murders to unusual funerals, Dreadful Fates provides a gruesome journey through history to present-day instances of figures who have had the misfortune of a dreadful or unusual end. Readers can find out about everything from Aeschylus, the ancient Greek who died when a tortoise fell on his head, and the man who tripped over his own beard, to a countless number who met their end through laughing too much!
