Palace Malice by Donald Woodburn
Palace Malice charts the excesses of a rather revolting woman! We meet her and her Bling King accessory-friend on the first page, then we get to witness her maltreating and taunting caged animals, hounding her servants, abusing the public and flaunting her obscene wealth over and over again. The excess of it all is slightly alluring, rather repulsive and uncomfortably amusing. Couple all this with the Dahlian twist of a delicious demise and you get a book with a message that is strong and important!
