What drives women to commit the most serious crime of all?

  Every murder is shocking, but few crimes shock society more than when the killer is a woman. There has been an explosion in female violence in the last 10 years, and this book brings to light some of the most horrific and compelling cases in this disturbing trend. Examining  a wide-range of criminals, this discussion includes teenage murderer Chelsea O'Mahoney; Heather Stephenson-Snell, the psychotherapist turned Scream-masked psychopath; Edith McAlinden, butcher queen of Glasgow's "House of Blood;" and the mother of Baby P, among others. In-depth and compelling, this book ultimately asks Are they victims themselves, or just evil? and As society changes, will more and more women feel driven to kill?
