Women are supposed to be tender and loving - not coldhearted killers, knife-wielding vampires or gun-toting hijackers. Yet throughout history, there's been no shortage of less than law-abiding ladies. Journalist Libby-Jane Charleston takes the reader on a chilling journey through a gallery of women who have smashed our perceptions of the stereotypical feminine persona, from meek Russian librarian Lucy Dudko, who commandeered a helicopter to break her boyfriend out of prison; to suburban sex goddess Michelle Burgess, who hired a hit man to take out her lover's wife; and Katherine Knight, who killed, skinned and cooked her husband to serve to his children. Read these true stories and delve into the dark and disturbing lives of Australia's most fatal females.show more
