Richard Pfefferman, PhD, is retired dean of Academic Affairs for the Los Angeles Community College District.Review:
"In The Murder Mystique, Laurie Nalepa and Richard Pfefferman have explored the always intricate and dark, yet remarkably illuminating, world of female killers with imaginative and powerful writing. They combine the insights of up-close psychology, trends at work in American society, and popular culture in a manner that lends their lively narrative special value. This is a book that should keenly benefit any reader interested in the fields of gender relations, sexuality, criminal violence, and media culture." (Dr. Carl Boggs, Professor of Social Sciences and Film Studies, National University, Los Angeles and Co-Author of The Hollywood War Machine)
"Laurie Nalepa and Richard Pfefferman's book The Murder Mystique: Female Killers in Popular Culture exposes the connections between popular culture and female murderers. This book showcases high-profile females that kill for love, money, self-defense, and psychotic thrills and exposes the often-biased coverage media provide of females accused of murder. This book will fascinate anyone interested in gender images and feminism in pop culture." (Tom Pollard, Professor, Department of Social Sciences, National University, San Diego, California and Author of Sex and Violence: The Hollywood Censorship Wars)
