This legendary bestseller exposes the truths and consequences of women on the edges of society—women driven to kill. From Lizzie Borden to Jean Harris to Aileen Wuornos, this riveting investigation will change the ways you think about crime and punishment. A new introduction by the author illuminates the conditions for women who kill—and are killed—now.

"An extraordinary feat . . . a groundbreaking book filled with originality on every page." —Susan Brownmiller, author of Against Our Will

“Ann Jones's classic book shows that female violence is nothing new and hardly rare, and the motivation behind it speaks volumes about the society in which it takes place.” —Patty Jenkins, director of Monster
