101 PEOPLE YOU WON’T MEET IN HEAVEN

The Twisted Achievements of the Most Brutal and Sadistic Individuals the World Has Ever Known

MICHAEL POWELL

101 People You Won’t Meet in Heaven is a gruesome hall of fame. Evildoers jostle for position, includ- ing the likes of Basil the Bulgar-slayer, Vlad the Impaler, Lizzie Borden, Heinrich Himmler, Pol Pot, Ted Bundy, Jeffrey Dahmer, Nicolae Ceausescu, and Slobodan Milosevic. Many common threads appear, including brutal childhoods, an unswerving will to power, and often the support, tacit or otherwise, of a legion of willing accomplices. There are many contrasts, too. Some are charismatic leaders with force- ful personalities, while others acted alone and in secret—solitary narcissists, full of self-loathing and repressed desire.

For those who are fascinated by what turns men into monsters, 101 People You Won’t Meet in Heaven is an engrossing and honest examination of humankind’s baser instincts.

Michael Powell is a freelance writer who has penned more than fifty titles, from historical guides to his- torical compilations. He lives in Somerset, England.
