Hell's Princess
Hell's Princess | Harold Schechter
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.

I found this book fascinating and frustrating at the same time. I was mainly frustrated because it really goes in depth as to how the American judicial system worked in the early 1900‘s. I was APPALLED. Say what you will about it now, but it‘s 1000% better than back then.

“I‘ve been a bad, bad girl
I‘ve been careless with a delicate man”

Belle Gunness fully embodies the lyrics to #Criminal . She murdered and butchered countless men. It wasn‘t until she was killed in a fire that her crime spree was unveiled...in her pig pen.

I found this a fascinating book on a woman serial killer, & with each turned page, the story kept getting more bizarre. I‘ve used this for past challenges, but had to share again. #LilithJuly

Belle Gunness was a female serial, the likes of which are rarely seen. Unlike most female killers, Gunness killed for the pure pleasure and savagery of the act. She lured her unsuspecting victims to her “murder farm”, where she hacked them to death.

She sure looks like a real charmer. 😂

I finished the audio at work today and unfortunately I found my attention wandering too easily. The subject was interesting, but there seem to be a lot of unknowns and no real conclusions. I was left wondering whether Belle was, in fact, a serial killer. The court case was fascinating and I liked the narrator, but I would have preferred more concrete evidence to support the author‘s claims and less speculation.

This was creepy and gory and sickening. It's very short (thank goodness, I wouldn't want to read much more about this hideous family) and didn't add much to what I already knew about the Benders but it was well researched and presented so I'm calling it a pick.

This book isn't in the litsy database so I tagged another book by the same author on the same subject.

This story is so dark that it actually gave me nightmares. Parts are boring and there‘s problematic racial/gender issues, but the value in this book is that I‘ve never read about quite so twisted of a murderer before. I didn‘t know a darn thing about Belle, but now I know too much.😶

Also, I absolutely love reading about historic court cases. It‘s incredible to compare modern trials and trial publicity with those of an earlier era.

This was an Amazon Kindle First pick a few months ago. I‘ve read Schechter previously (Depraved). I don‘t love his writing. He likes to use “$10 words” I was glad this was on my kindle so I could easily look up some of the words.
The subject was interesting. I didn‘t know anything about Belle Gunness. The amount of unknowns is incredible in this case.
I‘m giving this a so-so mostly because of Schechter‘s writing style.

TiredLibrarian Agree with you about Schechter's style. It's too bad, because he writes about so many interesting cases. 2y
OrangeMooseReads @TiredLibrarian he does and he does fantastic in-depth research. I feel like it takes extra time to read his works because I can only take it in small doses. 2y

Wow...what a bizarre story, and it‘s true! True crime lovers, take note of this. Belle Gunness murdered and butchered mostly men, but that is only just the beginning of her story. This is an amazing account of murder, lies, publicity, ghoulish acts, notoriety, and so much more. My only beef in this telling is Schechter‘s negative assessment of Belle‘s looks and incredulity of her ability to attract so many men based on her “mannish” facade.

An early female serial killer who lured men to help with her farm in Indiana from 1902-1908 and murdered them. Remains were found in her basement after a fire destroyed the home. She was considered a Lady Bluebeard she may have set up one of her handyman for her supposed death. Reads like a novel.

As always, an excellent true crime book by Mr. Schechter. Definitely an adult book, as it deals with the myriad gruesome details surrounding the case. There were many a time I thought I'd never be hungry again after listening to the audiobook. But I highly recommend the audiobook, as the narrator is fantastic.

(One note, though: Palouse, WA is pronounced Pa-loose. Not Pa-louse, as it was pronounced by the narrator.)

CSeydel Oh I really hate it when audio narrators mess up pronunciation. How hard is it these days to verify such things?? 2y
JosieG Apparently it's pretty difficult, because one of our colleges in my city regularly has its name pronounced wrong, as does my city. We listen out for that here, because we sort of half expect out-of-towners to get it wrong. But it's annoying when local commercials even have it said wrong. 😒 2y

I don‘t feel very passionate about this pick and I‘m not sure why. Maybe because the book doesn‘t add anything new to the history. I‘d recommend this for those intrigued by female serial killers, but a general true crime fan would probably be bored by it.
