Hardback, 1st ed. The author has assembled a comprehensive international collection of cases. From more than 200 individual profiles a pattern emerges of two main categories of these deadly females : those who, like their male counterparts, murder willingly and for similar motives of greed, jealousy and revenge; and those for whom killing is the last resort in their flight from male aggression. With remarkable consistency, these women account for less than 10% of national murder totals, and it is this comparative rarity which makes the motivations of those women who do turn to murder the focus of massive public speculation. An historical overview of that rare product of deviant behaviour - the woman who ventures into the world of violent crime. Illus., Alphabetical Index and Geographical Index. 310pp. 8vo. h/back. Lightly browned pp. o/w covers F. in F. dw.
