“Cranioklepty by Colin Dickey is a gruesome yet sexy work of historical non-fiction. What makes it sexy? The book follows the mysterious after-death journeys of the skulls of some very famous celebrities, in particular, the skulls of Mozart, Haydn, and Beethovan. Odd details on the post-death mystery surrounding the skull of Spanish artist, Goya, add dark appeal to this tale.”
