Presents the stories of hustlers, con artists, drug dealers, burglars, and others, who describe their starts in crime, the day-to-day lives, their criminal activities, and the trials and rituals of prison life. By the author of Cops. 25,000 first printing.

Blackwell North Amer
Bad Guys is a chilling look at the world of crime - from burglar to drug smuggler, from small-time hustler to full-time scam artist - told in the words of America's most wanted themselves. Young and old, male and female, career criminal and joyrider, bad guys tell their stories in voices that reveal the full range of emotions, from pride and regret to anger and shame, and even humor. (There's an irresistible account of a robbery gone so awry that the stick-up man has to hail a taxi to try to flee the crime scene.)
The criminals Mark Baker has interviewed for this book talk candidly about how they started on a life of crime, what their lives are like day-to-day (they talk, for example, about the mechanics of money laundering, planning a robbery, manufacturing fake drugs, and so forth), and the often brutal rituals of life in prison, where most career criminals eventually find themselves.
