I really like to read about famous Kindred/Cainites, and its a shame books like Children of the Inquisition and The Kindred Most Wanted got poor scanned copies. I know scanned copies are not supposed to be as good as Original Electronic Files, but there are good scanned files and bad scanned files.
Luckily, CotN is not even scanned, its OEF.
CotN is a great book, not only because you can introduce notorious bastards into your chronicle, but because you can understand what's going on in the WoD. Each character has a agenda, and each agenda moves the metaplot.
It's even better if you're running a Sabbat chronicle, specially for those set in Mexico. CotN + Mexico City by Night make a great combo, really.
