Perhaps if the copy I picked up had still had the dust jacket, or found it under the original/ full title of The Mammoth Book of Women Who Kill, instead of just Women Who Kill, I would have realized more the lurid/ cheap nature of the book.

Did not finish the book.

Recommends it for: the dark side of the force
I borrowed this book from a friend and read it rather quickly...but then I started having murderous nightmares and I threw it in a garbage can in a New York Subway Station. Evil Book be Gone!!

It was interesting to read some of the 1,000 pages on hundreds of murdering women, from Lady Dracula to the modern day moors murderer, but it started to harsh my positive vibe dude.
This is truly a mammoth book! It's filled with short chapters for each of the murderess women. Its a fascinating read starting with Agrippa, Nero's mother and ending with Aileen Wuornos.
