From the Author
What makes a young woman abduct, handcuff and sexually assault a thirteen year old girl? Why does she go on to torture and kill her then abduct another woman and subject her to similar prolonged abuse? In this book I've concentrated most on thrill killings like these as they are the hardest for most of us to understand.
I also look at female serial killers who murdered for motives such as profit or revenge, choosing cases that are particularly unusual. For example, two lesbian careworkers killed their patients then had wild sex together whilst talking about the corpses. And one very large woman suffocated each of her victims with her colossal weight. Many of the cases contain strong elements of sadism and all involve control.
I worked hard to put each case study in chronological order so that the reader can see how a loving child gradually metamorphosed into a compassionless killer.
Many of the killers are American but there are also cases from Australia, Bavaria, Britain, Canada and France. One of the killers has already been released and another will be released within the next two years.
