Women Who Kill (Serial Killers) | [RJ Parker]

Women Who Kill (Serial Killers)

When we hear about a serial killer, we never consider the sex, we would immediately assume a man...right? but that's not always the case! Females are for the most part, the loving and caring protectors of our species and the ones that are more susceptible to danger. However, they are in fact the most dangerous because they are the least suspected of the Serial Killers. Like their male counterparts, they show no remorse and have no mercy for their victims.

Publisher's Summary

What the Critics Say

"Women Who Kill is a journey into the minds of female serial killers - their motives, their acts, their thought process. Parker gives an overview and then delves into various stories about individual killers. I found myself horrified but also completely captivated." (Best-selling author Michele Scott)

"If you're looking for some gruesome, real-life stories of deadly women, look no further. Parker has collected, and documented, tales of murder and mayhem from the, uh, fairer sex. Hard to believe some people can do such heinous acts. A mind-boggling collection." (Alan Orloff)

    "EXCELLENT BOOK FOR A TRUE GRUE COLLECTOR"
    What did you love best about Women Who Kill (Serial Killers)?

    Usually when we think of Serial Killers we think of men, not the case in this book


    What about David Gilmore’s performance did you like?

    Very well spoken


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely


    Any additional comments?

    Oh how we cherish our mothers and respect their kindness! Well, here is a different story told in "Women Who Kill"! This book made me cringe at the thought that there is a different breed of mothers/women out there who have a disgusting way of life. Not only to their loving children and spouces whom they decieve but to the community as well! Heart breaking stories some had to face in the hands of these monsters! Great book and very interesting knowledge! Its not only men we have to fear but the kind women with the wicked intent next door!

    Audiojunkie, interested in all under the sun. I find that i enjoy non-fiction better than fiction although Amelia Peabody is the best. :-)

    "exactly what it says"

    It is quite an interesting two hours. normally i don't bother with a short book like this. if you are a true crime fan you will like it. as i say quite interesting, the narration is good which matters very much. As an indulgence, go for it :-)

    If you could sum up Women Who Kill (Serial Killers) in three words, what would they be?

    Crazy, informative, short


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the stories about each woman. I've heard some of these stories from tv shows but I thought the book was too short. I loved hearing about the women serial killers.


    Have you listened to any of David Gilmore’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    I love serial killer stories
