Summary "The shocking true story of one of the twentieth century's most prolific female serial killers."--Book jacket.
Belle Gunness 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 La Porte, 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... they'd been butchered. Schechter profiles the killing spree of the woman who came to be known as Lady Bluebeard.
