Description

There is a woman who slew her husband with the Christmas present she'd given him, a grandmother who enthusiastically assisted in the murder of her own granddaughter, and, a woman who helped her lover brutally slaughter her husband. David Kiely, author of the bestseller "Bloody Women: Ireland's Female Killers", returns with a new collection of cases from north and south of the border. Spanning more than a century, "Deadlier than the Male" offers a startling and compelling look at the circumstances that drove sixteen Irish women to murder. Many were pushed to the brink by abusive partners, others entered a deadly love triangle. Still others chose the way of murder to further their own selfish ends. "Deadlier than the Male" is a perfect sequel to "Bloody Women". Grippingly written, these stories tell of moments of madness, panic and evil.show more
