  • Criminal Womenby John J Eddleston

    Pen and Sword 2010; US$ 8.99

    Women have sometimes been seen as less criminally inclined than men. But, as John Eddleston shows in this revealing anthology of female crimes in London, this image is hard to mesh with reality, for the city’s history is crowded with cases of women who broke the law. In vivid detail he reconstructs a series of dramatic, often harrowing cases in... more...
