Suppose you get that overdue promotion to hit man. The hours are great, the perks are generous, and there's plenty of room for advancement. Yet, if you are unaccustomed to strict deadlines, frequent law enforcement interactions, and severe sentencing risks, you may be miserable." --Careers in Crime

Careers in Crime: An Applicant's Guide answers all the nagging questions about how the other half works, and actually ranks 50 real-world criminal occupations. Covering time-honored favorites like hit man, fence, and pimp, as well as emerging growth fields like spammer, identity thief, and pirate radio operator, Careers in Crime dishes the sinfully delicious inside scoop on compensation and rewards, stresses and hazards, enforcement and penalties, and work environment.

* An exotic romp through the criminal work world, as led by your high school guidance counselor. A host of charts, graphs, and other "killer" visuals deepen the deadpan effect of this CareerSpeak classic.

* An irresistibly humorous read for Sopranos and Alias fans, the mother lode for true crime buffs, and the ultimate gag gift for disheartened job seekers.
