            *PRE-ORDER THE DELICIOUSLY DARK REIMAGINING OF THE LIFE AND TIMES OF HISTORY'S ORIGINAL FEMALE SERIAL KILLER* Bella Sorensen loves men. She loves them to death . . . ___________ Early in life Bella Sorensen discovers the world is made only for men. They own everything: jobs, prop...erty, wives. But Bella 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 Bella 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, Bella 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 Bella's schemes to enrich herself and cut down the male population come to a glorious, dreadful fruition . . . Based on the true story of Bella Sorensen 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.
