Any additional comments?
Just an FYI for anyone looking to purchase this book: more than half of the women featured here aren't serial killers. Some had only killed one person, others were clinically insane, with a smattering of actual famous female serial killers. This book should be called 'famous female murderers' and drop the whole serial killer angle all together.
