Revealing the dark side of those driven personalities which define history, History Greatest Scandal’s tells the story of people from all walks of life. From Caravaggio, the painting genius who killed a man over a tennis match to US President Warren Harding, blackmailed by his mistress. Straying from the route of honour to make a quick buck, these true stories often rival the greatest fiction. Expect underhand deals, criminality and clandestine affairs.

Synopsis

History's Greatest Scandals by Ed Wright

Tells of adultery, perversion, shameless greed, theft, and deception that have brought down presidents, prime ministers, clergy and famous people of practically every stripe. Each tale shocks us, sometimes for its audacity, sometimes its complexity and sometimes its pure idiocy.
