"Chilling. Coletta draws on a wide range of original sources to bring her subjects to life."
"I'm a devoted fan of Sue Coletta's fictional suspense novels. She's a must read for me. When I learned Coletta had ventured into True Crime, I had to get my hands on a print copy for my favorite reads collection.
PRETTY EVIL is an unforgettable read that will prickle the skin of any reader. Coletta creates a dark mysterious world set in nineteenth century New England-the atmospheric hunting ground of five female serial killers. Each story is liberally infused with the extensive research Coletta compiled from a treasure trove of real news stories from the period, personal diaries from the time, and documented court proceedings to make for an authentic period piece.
PRETTY EVIL gives the reader a front row seat to the unembellished actions of five depraved and diabolical female serial killers-depictions made more chilling because these women existed."
