Publisher's Summary

When we hear about a serial killer, we never consider the sex; we would immediately assume a man...right? But that's not always the case! Females are for the most part, the loving and caring protectors of our species and the ones that are more susceptible to danger. However, they are in fact the most dangerous because they are the least suspected of the serial killers. Like their male counterparts, they show no remorse and have no mercy for their victims. Should we still call them the weaker sex?
Women Who Kill explains and defines the various types of female serial iillers and contains over 20 criminal dossiers, including:

Gertrude Baniszewski
Margie Barfield
Martha Beck
Lizzie Borden
Judias Buenoano
Christine Falling
Caril Ann Fugate and Charles Starkweather (Couple)
Delfina and Maria de Jesus Gonzalez (Sisters)
Karla Homolka and Paul Bernardo (Wife and Husband)
Dorothea Puente
Marybeth Tinning
Rosemary and Fred West (Wife and Husband)

Critic Reviews

" Women Who Kill is a journey into the minds of female serial killers - their motives, their acts, their thought process. Parker gives an overview and then delves into various stories about individual killers. I found myself horrified but also completely captivated." (Best-selling author Michele Scott)
"If you're looking for some gruesome, real-life stories of deadly women, look no further. Parker has collected, and documented, tales of murder and mayhem from the, uh, fairer sex. Hard to believe some people can do such heinous acts. A mind-boggling collection." (Alan Orloff)

What did you love best about Women Who Kill (Serial Killers)?

Usually when we think of Serial Killers we think of men, not the case in this book

What about David Gilmore’s performance did you like?

Very well spoken

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?


Any additional comments?

Oh how we cherish our mothers and respect their kindness! Well, here is a different story told in "Women Who Kill"! This book made me cringe at the thought that there is a different breed of mothers/women out there who have a disgusting way of life. Not only to their loving children and spouces whom they decieve but to the community as well! Heart breaking stories some had to face in the hands of these monsters! Great book and very interesting knowledge! Its not only men we have to fear but the kind women with the wicked intent next door!
