The narrative we're comfortable with is one where women are the victims of violent crime - not the perpetrators. In fact, serial killers are thought to be so universally male that, in 1998, FBI profiler Roy Hazelwood infamously declared that there are no female serial killers. Inspired by Telfer's Jezebel column of the same name, Lady Killers disputes that claim and offers 14 gruesome examples as evidence.

As a true crime fan, I was very excited for this book. Many of the stories are similar in nature to each other which made it difficult to listen to straight through. Narration is also unexciting. Overall, the stories were well researched.
