Description

"Stunning, revealing, provoking. . . . A powerful book, not only about women who murder, but also about how women have been perceived." --Vogue

This legendary bestseller exposes the truths and consequences of women on the edges of society--women driven to kill. From Lizzie Borden to Jean Harris to Aileen Wuornos, this riveting investigation will change the ways you think about crime and punishment. A new introduction by the author illuminates the conditions for women who kill--and are killed--now.
