Overview

True crime monsters, historic jerks, and Earth’s lowest of the low get their due

There’s no rest for the wicked! Darkly hilarious and deeply satisfying, The People You Meet in Hell takes comedy roasts to a whole new subterranean level. This definitive guide to humanity’s most despicable individuals tempers their gasp-worthy true crimes with mockery and a big pinch of karma administered by Satan himself. From dictators to serial killers and even everyday monsters like your micromanaging boss, this book pulls no punches. Enjoy entertaining star ratings and custom punishments from the Devil himself, complete with 40 comically gratifying illustrations:

- Consummate cannibal Jeffrey Dahmer enjoys a tofu-heavy diet down below
- Murderous misogynist Ted Bundy is a hit on Hell’s most horrifying dating app
- Baby farmer Amelia Dyer spends a sleepless eternity surrounded by creepy porcelain dolls

With a heavy helping of posthumous humor, The People You Meet in Hell reminds you that there’s always hope. Well, maybe not for these people. But for you, probably! You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll cringe, and you’ll thank your lucky stars that you’re not in the crosshairs. (Yet.)
