Satan’s Sweethearts is an evil collection of poetry. Readers are met with the macabre history of villainesses such as Ching-Shih, Delphine LaLaurie, Lizzie Borden, and several other women who have a dark history. Satan’s Sweethearts is an intriguing, yet daunting collection. Based on historical facts, the poets dove into the macabre of each story and brought out an outstanding book. More
A dark gem of finely wrought, hauntingly literate poems, SATAN'S SWEETHEARTS by Marge Simon and Mary Turzillo examines the evil misdeeds of historic women from Lizzie Borden to Linda Hazzard (two of my personal favorites) to Bell Gunness and Nannie Doss, to almost every cold-blooded female you can recall. If you're a crime or history buff, this collection will resonate with you long after its final stanzas.Highly evocative and highly recommended.

“They say that well behaved women rarely make history. Well, this book is by two women who have been behaving very badly lately. Or, rather, writing beautiful about bad things. With Satan's Sweethearts, Marge Simon and Mary Turzillo's sometimes funny, sometimes painful, sometimes abjectly terrifying collection, they've defied expectations at every turn. This book gets an A for capturing the shocking terror of crime, and F for bad behavior. Read this book. You'll thank me when you do!"
–Joe McKinney, Bram Stoker Award Novelist
