Book - 2017
Rate this:

There is nothing more shocking or fascinating than the story of a homicidal woman. We are told that violence is a man's domain--that a woman is pre-programmed to nurture and protect. Women who break this taboo are hated and reviled; their stories scorched into our collective psyches. This book profiles twenty-one female murderers throughout history--from powerful female warriors such as Boudicca and Agrippina to the revenge killings of Ruth Ellis and Phoolan Devi to the outrightpsychotic butcherings of Mona Fandey and Juana Barraza. Beautiful and evocative illustrations by Sarah Tanat-Jones make their stories even more compelling.
