"Crime doesn't pay, unless it's in the amount of attention some people pay to criminals. Exhibit A in this case is the World Encyclopedia of Organized Crime on CD-ROM, a rogues' gallery of larger-than-life villains. ... You probably know the story of Al Capone, but how about that of Taoko Kanzua? The Japanese crime boss is one of thousands of electronic entries here touching on the underworld in 40 countries. The program features and intriguing 20-minute presentation by true-crime author Jay Robert Nash that maps scandal around the globe and offers a teaser of the program's 1,000 photos and 600 articles."
