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.

In response, God imbues devout priest John McClain with supernatural power that can stem the tide and save his country. In the aftermath, McClain finds himself wrapped up in the pursuit of the unborn child of twenty-four-year-old nun turned movie star Annabelle Smithson, who is on the run from the forces of good and evil. McClain takes her under his wing and works to win her and her child to the side of God. But Annabelle has a dark secret: her child may in fact be the daughter of darkness. Annabelle dies in childbirth, leaving McClain as steward for young Tabitha, who is swayed to the forces of evil led by Satanist Paul Hart and his secret occult society. To defeat the newly crowned Princess of Darkness, McClain must decide whether he is willing to sacrifice his own life to make way for an avenging angel sent by God.

The truth behind the twisted crimes that inspired the films Psycho, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, and The Silence of the Lambs... From “America’s principal chronicler of its greatest psychopathic killers” (The Boston Book Review) comes the definitive account of Ed Gein, a mild-mannered Wisconsin farmhand who stunned an unsuspecting nation—and redefined the meaning of the word “psycho.” The year was 1957. The place was an ordinary farmhouse in America’s heartland, filled with extraordinary evidence of unthinkable depravity. The man behind the massacre was a slight, unassuming Midwesterner with a strange smile—and even stranger attachment to his domineering mother. After her death and a failed attempt to dig up his mother’s body from the local cemetery, Gein turned to other grave robberies and, ultimately, multiple murders. Driven to commit gruesome and bizarre acts beyond all imagining, Ed Gein remains one of the most deranged minds in the annals of American homicide. This is his story—recounted in fascinating and chilling detail by Harold Schechter, one of the most acclaimed true-crime storytellers of our time.

When Muriel goes to the beach, instead of collecting seashells like a normal person, she picks up a new man. A merman… Juggling a happily ever after is harder than it looks especially when it involves a fallen angel who is my soul mate, a hunky cat shifter, who stole my heart and a darkly delicious vampire who is like that piece of forbidden chocolate you just can’t resist. Add in a precocious little girl, who is totally spoiled rotten—not surprising given nana and poppa were Mother Earth and the Devil—and my life was a never ending series of dramas, foot stomping, yelling and tears. By me. I never knew being a grown up could be so much damned work which is why I decided we needed a vacation. But of course, being Lucifer’s daughter, that didn’t turn out as expected. Now I’ve go to figure out if my bathtub is big enough for a hunky merman—and is there room in my heart for one more?

How did a Catholic bishop stop the riot of 1861? Which British monarch physically assaulted a priest in St. John's? What ancient relics are kept at the Basilica? Did a British princess help build Newfoundland's greatest Catholic church? By mining Newfoundland's history and folklore, Jack Fitzgerald answers these questions, and many more, in Hell's Flames to Heaven's Gate. From Newfoundland's role as a sanctuary for the displaced immigrants of the Irish-Catholic diaspora to a Catholic Bishop's plea to an English monarch, and from the stories of relics and cultural artifacts to the building of the magnificent Basilica-Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, Jack Fitzgerald returns to chronicle the most socially and politically powerful institution in Newfoundland history.
