 “The usual suspects rub shoulders with little-known killers from around the globe in this surprising, disturbing, and thoroughly engaging collection of stories of lethal women, evil mothers, deadly lovers, and abuse victims driven to the brink. Essential reading for all true crime


Dean Jobb, author of The Case of the Murderous Dr. Cream

“This exciting true crime anthology, finely edited by Mitzi Szereto, demonstrates that although women around the globe kill far less frequently than men, their murderous tales are often more compelling. Highly recommended!”

Dr. Scott Bonn, author of Why We Love Serial Killers: The Curious Appeal of the World’s

Most Savage Murderers

“Mitzi Szereto’s expertise at assembling collections of true crime essays is on display in Women Who Murder, whose eclectic contents include stand-out essays by the likes of Cathy Pickens (a ‘Southern Gothic’ mystery) and Ciaran Conliffe, who explores the legendary Ruth Snyder case.”

Martin Edwards, Edgar-winning author of The Life of Crime

“For those who like their true crime lean, mean, and multinational. Women Who Murder delivers bite-sized case studies both notorious and little known, but always addressing one overriding question: what drives a woman to kill? Editor Mitzi Szereto opens a Pandora’s box-load of shockers, contributing her own essay about Iran’s first female serial murderer. Women WhoMurder argues convincingly that homicide is not just a macho pastime. Expect many sequels.”

Dennis McDougal, author of Mother’s Day and Angel of Darkness

Women Who Murder: An International Collection of Deadly True Crime Tales does exactly what it says on the cover of this beautifully edited book by Mitzi Szereto. A must-read for all

true crime readers’ bookshelves. An important contribution to crime literature. Very enjoyable.”

“Editor and author Mitzi Szereto returns with Women Who Murder: An International Collection of Deadly True Crime Tales. From the infamous case of the murderous mother Susan Smith to Iran’s first known serial killer, to a black magic murder ritual in Malaysia, Mitzi Szereto delivers a stellar group of international authors and their deadly true crime tales.”

Dan Zupansky, author and host of True Murder

“In Women Who Murder: An International Collection of Deadly True Crime Tales, Mitzi Szereto has compiled a series of fascinating stories featuring female killers. These tales describe in detail not only the crimes themselves—ones that take place in countries all over the world—but, perhaps more interesting, the backgrounds of these women and what drove them to commit these heinous acts. The authors of these stories tell them so well that I found myself empathizing with the murderesses, surprising myself. I recommend this enthralling book, but especially to those interested in understanding what drives an individual to murder.”
