DESCRIPTION: The author has produced a great debut book. Female 
killers through history have received less coverage than they 
deserve and this book sets out a selection of killers through 
history that proves the female can be as deadly as the male. The 
illustrations add to the text  – Highly Recommended.

The selection of murders provides a very interesting group of women 
from various backgrounds and points in history. It is easy to wonder 
why a particular notorious woman has been left out, but these are 
after all women who have become notable in history and often killers 
with specific political motivation. In this selection the subjects 
are not well-known but each demonstrates a specific aspect of murder 
by females. There are the educated and affluent killers, the killers 
who can only be described as evil, the sad and the disadvantaged. 
The range of motives is as diverse as for men who kill.

One factor that comes out is the demonstration that there were female 
serial killers and they were not a product of modern life. It has 
been often claimed that serial killers are a recent phenomena, but it 
is more a case of relative publicity and better criminal detection 
techniques. Many killers in history have escaped sanction because 
of a lack of policing and because communication was much more 
restricted. Many of the women from ancient history have become 
notorious without suffering any sanction at the time. Often they are 
remembered through the speculation of some historians.

Each subject in this book is considered carefully by the author and 
the grim nature of the subject is relieved by the witty and dryly 
humorous style of the writing. The coverage is inciteful and leads 
the reader into the heart of depravity and darkness
