Most killers are men. But never turn your back on a woman. Murder, madness and maliciousness abound in this hangman's dozen of she-devils. Culled from over five hundred years of bloody history by crime writer and journalist Douglas Skelton, these pages uncover the mad, the bad and the dangerous to know.
  • Vengeful Queen Joan, who made her husband's assassins pay a fearful price for their treason.
  • Beautiful Jean Livingston, who bravely faced The Maiden after murdering her abusive husband.
  • Child killers Helen Torrence and Jean Waldie, who sold their victim to anatomists.
  • Baby farmer Jessie King, who dealt in flsh... and death.
  • These cases, together with a host of others, prove that women are far from the gentler sex. Most killers are men. But women are more deadly.
  • Deadlier Than the Male
