Publisher's Summary

Society is conditioned to think of murderers and predators as men, but in this fascinating book, Peter Vronsky exposes and investigates the phenomenon of women who kill - and the political, economic, social, and sexual implications. From history's earliest recorded cases of homicidal females to Irma Grese, the Nazi Beast of Belsen, from Britain's notorious child-slayer Myra Hindley to "Honeymoon Killer" Martha Beck, from the sensational murder-spree of Aileen Wournos, to cult killers, homicidal missionaries, and the sexy femme fatale, Vronsky challenges the ordinary standards of good and evil and defies the accepted perceptions of gender role and identity.

i'm a Peter Vronsky fan so i really enjoyed this book. Vronsky not only researches his material his personal insights are interesting. Great narrator. If you are a true crime fan you'll like the "why" of this book as well as the "how". Definitely credit worthy.

Extremely well researched

Lots of info on each criminal, some well known and others not. I found it very interesting and I was pleasantly surprised that it was much more the usual basic info that we hear on every other true crime show or book.
