Deadly Women Whose Crimes Knew No LimitseBook - 2009
Evil Wives focuses on the horrible crimes committed by women. Included are those such as Rosemary West, Myra Hindley and Karla Homolka who engaged with their partners in the most horrific crimes, as well as those who preyed upon their spouses or fiancš. Among the 36 murderers covered are: Pamela Smart - a volunteer at a high school drug awareness program, who urged her 15-year-old lover and his friends to kill her husband; Kathleen Folbigg - convicted in the deaths of her four infant children; Nancy Kissel - an expatriate American living in Hong Kong, who served her investment banker husband a strawberry milkshake laced with drugs, then clubbed him to death with a small statue; Celeste Beard - whose husband was disemboweled by her lesbian lover. Lavishly illustrated, this is an indispensable introduction to the darker side of life, revealing the often strange and grisly stories behind the world's most infamous women killers.
