FROM THE PUBLISHER
This book details the lives and careers of fifteen women whose crimes have, at one time or another, stained the pages of history. Parricide, fratricide and, most terrible of all, infanticide; murder under trust; serial murder, including the stalking and killing of men; torture, persecution, massacre and judicial murder; sexually motivated killings; murders for gain or to conceal other crimes- all these and others are detailed in this fascinating study of the manifestation of true evil in women over some 2,000 years. From Roman empresses to jealous daughters and bored housewives, they have all been responsible for terrible crimes.

Her writing is awful. It drowns in appositives and parentheticals, and she needs a grammar editor. I read the segment on Tz'u Hsi, dowanger Empress of China, and it read like a student report prepared the night before. Several of the other women's stories seem to be pulled from the British tabloids.

A look at the most evil women throughout history. Some more well known than others, but all psychologically fascinating.

How can you write a book about the most evil women in history and include Catherine the Great, but not include Elizabeth Batheroy?
