She-Devils by Anne McDuff
A detailed account of some of the most notorious female murderers in recent history. Only serial killers will do for this book and though they are rare, when women do go bad they are terrifying.
First off, the hand on that cover is so weird. I don't know if it's the attempt at nailpolish or what, but it looks strange. Anyhow, for true crime lovers this is a pretty good find. Several of the chapters are very disturbing in what they reveal about what the killer did and I wouldn't recommend it to anything other than adult readers, but it was very readable even though the chapters were long. The author seemed to have done their research fairly well, so I don't doubt most of what was written was accurate. Disturbing, but accurate.
