Synopsis: Execution is a gruesomely fascinating catalogue of methods of judicial execution from around the world and through the ages. In his own humorous style, Geoffrey Abbott describes in detail the instruments used, past and present, and charts the evolution of their construction, operation techniques and effectiveness. He reveals the macabre origins of familiar phrases such as 'gone west' or 'drawn a blank' and explains the jargon of the underworld. From the preparation of the victim for his fate to the disposal of the body, Execution answers all the questions you are every likely to ask on this grisly subject, and some you would never want to imagine.

About the Author: Geoffrey Abbott served for many years as a Yeoman Warder (Beefeater) at the tower of London, Author of 16 books including the bestselling 'The Executioner Always Chops Twice', 'Lipstick on the Noose' and contributor to the Encyclopedia Britannica. He has also made numerous televeision appearances.
