True Crime | Historical
In the pantheon of serial killers, Belle Gunness stands
alone. She was the rarest of female psychopaths, a woman
who engaged in wholesale slaughter, partly out of greed
but mostly for the sheer joy of it. Between 1902 and
1908, she lured a succession of unsuspecting victims to
her Indiana “murder farm.” Some were hired hands. Others
were well-to-do bachelors. All of them vanished without a
trace. When their bodies were dug up, they hadn’t merely
been poisoned, like victims of other female killers.
They’d been butchered.
Hell’s Princess is a riveting account of one of the most
sensational killing sprees in the annals of American
crime: the shocking series of murders committed by the
woman who came to be known as Lady Bluebeard. The only
definitive book on this notorious case and the first to
reveal previously unknown information about its subject,
Harold Schechter’s gripping, suspenseful narrative has
all the elements of a classic mystery—and all the
gruesome twists of a nightmare.
