Hardback. Why does a young woman lure teenagers into her car then participate in their horrific rape and torture? What makes a nurse lethally inject the healthy babies in her care? Women, statistically, aren't a violent breed...but the female of the species can be just as deadly as the male. The women featured in this book did not commit their crimes in the heat of the moment or in self-defence - each murder was planned and executed with frightening efficiency. It took detectives twice as long to catch them as their male counterparts. From the mass poisoner to the sexual sadist, from profit killings to crimes committed just for twisted thrills, the author sets out to explore the dark and disturbing world of the female serial killer. In-depth analysis of the individual cases, including new information from the minister who heard Myra Hindley's confession, provides an invaluable insight into the psychology behind these atrocities. Featuring : Anna Zwanziger, Jeanne Weber, Myra Hindley, Martha Ann Johnson, Charlene Gallego, Genene Jones, Judith Nelley, Catherine Birne, Gwen Graham & Catherine Wood, Rose West, Carol Bundy, Aileen Wuornos, Karla Homolka. With Select Bibliog. and Index. 269pp. 8vo. h/back. From the library of true-crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. F. in F. dw.
