Black Widows, Child Killers, and Other Women in Crime
 by Betty Alt and Sandra Wells

The “gentler” sex: mothers, grannies, nurturers . . . and sometimes killers. In this examination of women on the wrong side of the law, you’ll meet wives who poisoned their husbands for profit, nurses who deliberately sent their patients to untimely ends and mothers who did the unthinkable. You’ll also see how many women take advantage of public perception and claim they’re victims to receive lighter punishment than men – or no punishment at all! Authors Betty Alt (Slaughter in Cell House 3: Anatomy of a Riot) and Sandra Wells also examine the growing threat of violent female gang members and the often unprosecuted “pink-collar” crimes of embezzlement, shoplifting and fraud. A must-read for anyone interested in modern crime. 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, softcover, 192 pp. $20.00
