She Kills Me: The True Stories of History's Deadliest Women

by Jennifer Wright Author

A history book for any true crime aficionado, author Jennifer Wright has collected 40 stories of some of the most dangerous and murderous women from over the centuries. Killing out of necessity, fear, for revenge, or simply for pleasure, She Kills Me turns the typical true crime narrative on its head, as the women in this book are not the prey, but rather the predator. We can revile them for killing in cold blood, but there's a part of us that loves them all the same. They live lives that women aren't 'supposed' to live, and do the things that women aren't 'supposed' to do, and it sure is entertaining to read about their exploits. A great gift for the ardent feminist or true crime fanatic in your life.
