A thrilling and bloodcurdling investigation of female serial killers and their crimes throughout the ages. 

When you think of serial killers throughout history, the names that come to mind are ones like Jack the Ripper and Ted Bundy. But what about female serial killers?

Lady Killers, based on the popular online series that appeared on Jezebel and The Hairpin, offers fourteen gruesome examples of female serial killers. Though largely forgotten by history, the likes of Erzsebet Bathory, Nannie Doss, Mary Ann Cotton, and Darya Nikolayevna Saltykova rival their male counterparts in cunning, cruelty and appetite for destruction.
