*PRE-ORDER THE DELICIOUSLY DARK REIMAGINING OF THE LIFE AND TIMES OF HISTORY'S ORIGINAL FEMALE SERIAL KILLER*
Belle Sorensen loves men.
She loves them to death . . .
Early in life Belle Sorensen discovers the world is made only for men. They own everything: jobs, property, wives. But Belle understands what few others do: where women are concerned, men are weak.
A woman unhampered by scruples can take from them what she wants. And so Belle sets out to prove to the world that a woman can be just as ruthless, black-hearted and single-minded as any man.
Starting with her long suffering husband, Mads, Belle embarks on a killing spree the like of which has never been seen before nor since.
And through it all her kind, older sister Nellie can only watch in horror as Belle's schemes to enrich herself and cut down the male population come to a glorious, dreadful fruition . . .
Based on the true story of Belle Gunness whose murderous rampage began in Chicago in 1900, Triflers Need Not Apply is a novelistic tour de force exploring one woman's determination to pay men back for all they have taken.

If you enjoy books based on true stories and real life people then add Triflers Need Not Apply to your to read list. It's an interesting and riveting account of a female serial killer and her sister who watches on in horror as her sister continues her vendetta against men.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book from start to finish. A superbly written tale of a woman's ultimate revenge, totally gripping, would definitely recommend
What a fascinating story . Id never heard of this woman and the fact she was Norwegian but killed in the USA was unusual! So many interesting facets to the story. Nothing is stranger than fiction eh? Except much of this actually happened. What a story. Honestly. Read it but not at night - and not whilst eating.
