Softcover. Real-life murder is a terrible occurrence, far removed from what we have come to accept in the world of fiction. But the circumstances underlying this crime are often just as complex, and just as subtle as their fictional counterparts. This is a collection of true stories of 11 women, and the shocking course of events that led them to a federal penitentiary to serve life sentences for murder. Only one of these women maintains that she is innocent. Of the rest, one killed a stranger, two killed acquaintances, one hired a contract killer, two killed their husbands, and the remaining four had the misfortune to be in the company of men who killed. The author, herself a lifer, argues that brutal backgrounds, destructive relationships, inexperienced lawyers, and a biased legal system combine to condemn these women to that one irrevocable act, and a life behind bars. Illus. 119pp. softcover. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. V. lightly browned pp. and sl. sunned covers o/w Vg+ with no creasing to covers.
