How to Succeed in Evil is a series of books by Patrick E. McLean that feature Edwin Windsor, Evil Efficiency Consultant. He tries to make villains more villainous and profitable, but his clients are all too meglomaniacal to take good advice. Complications, hilarity and satire ensue, but with the aide of his rabid lawyer Topper and faithful secretary Agnes, Edwin’s purer, truer breed of Evil Genius always seems to land him on top.
