The 20th-Century, like the previous centuries, has seen no end of murders by women with poison as their choice of weapon. Furthermore, just like in the previous centuries, the murders have been just as cold and calculating.
Those lucky few who have managed to survive an attempted murder by these women have described being poisoned as being equal to being devoured alive.
However, the 20th century has also seen murders committed by women with guns and, in the case of Dana Gray, with physical violence. Dana is a rarity among women serial killers, in both her choice of victim and her hands-on method of using her hands, a cord or rope, and an object with which to batter her victim.
Aileen Wuornos was described in the popular press as the first American woman serial killer. This is totally incorrect. American women serial killers existed long before Aileen Wuornos was even born.
Yet, even after all this time, we are left with the same question: what leads a woman to commit serial murder?
In this book, I examine the profiles of twenty-five women serial killers, all of whom acted alone.
I have not included mothers who solely kill their own children as I believe that is a subject that deserves to be written about entirely separately.
Even leaving those specific types of Women Serial Killers aside, there are still many women who choose to commit murder again, and again, and again…
Welcome to the world of 20th century women serial killers
