Book Review: “Hell’s Princess: The Mystery of Belle Gunness, Butcher of Men” by Harold Schechter

I can see why some people rated this book so low. The author has gone out of his way to make sure that pictures of Belle get put into the book, and yet he still describes her as "not a beauty" (when the first picture is very attractive for its time) and later says "That … Continue reading Book Review: “Hell’s Princess: The Mystery of Belle Gunness, Butcher of Men” by Harold Schechter
