9780030407116: Women Who Kill

"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.
