Summary
This collection tells the ghoulish stories of more than 75 female killers, primarily from the UK, the USA, Europe and Australia, and concentrating on 19th and 20th-century cases. Victims include husbands, lovers, children, parents and employers; motives love, gain and revenge and weapons guns, axes and poison (known as the woman's weapon). Amongst these macabre and horrifying stories are the exploits of Lydia Sherman (the Borgia of Connecticut), Ruth Ellis, Charlotte Corday and Belle Gunness. There is also a clutch of notorious non-proven cases including those of Lizzie Borden, Madeleine Smith and Constance Kent
