Female Serial Killers
Format: eBook, Kindle
Pub. Date: 2013
Type: Non-Fiction, True Crime
Rating: Liked it ♥♡
This is a compilation of cases of Female killers that were born and or lived in Austria and Germany. Most of them are serial killers. The oldest case the first murder occurred in 1797, the most recent was 2010.
It seems that way back then, many a woman thought the only way to get out of a bad marriage was to kill her husband. Also, the non-availably of employment opportunities for women lead some to marry rich husbands, then kill them for their estate. Then of course, there were the women who genuinely didn’t want to work.
Some killed parents they didn’t want to care for, some killed children their new partners didn’t want, some killed anyone who got in their way.
Method of murder for most was poison.
Most of the information in these accounts comes from previously published sources. And the chapters are short. Making this a quick but fascinating read.
Recommended to those who like just the basics of true crime accounts.

I got the name Bella because my grandfather called me Suzabell. I use that as a username and my friends on the site started calling me Bella. Thus was born: Bella Foxx's Life, now known as "just a city girl" since I have made the big jump from the country and am now living in the City, UES.
I like to make jewelry (check out my blog "Bella is creative" started April 17, 2008) and write. I like to do cross stitch and knit. I sew, I don't really enjoy it, but I enjoy the clothes.
I like to read the Bible, books, magazines, online newspaper articles, blogs, jokes on candy wrappers, ads on the subway, billboards, backs of food boxes, lists of ingredients and recipes, cleaning directions, sayings on shirts. I post my reviews on "Just a girl, living, reading, watching, and writing", on Shelfari, Library Thing and Goodreads..
I am allergic to practically everything: grass, trees, weeds, animal dander, dust, mold, wheat, apples, nuts, fish and coconut. The fish and coconut are so serious I carry an Epi-pen and wear a Medic-Alert bracelet.
And last but not least. I love the Yankees.
