Product description


"This important, necessary book highlights our urgent need to re-examine what we think we know about female aggression."
The Globe and Mail (Notable Book of the Year)

The Vancouver Sun

"A compelling, frightening look at women, not as victims of violence, but as perpetrators of it... Gripping, controversial material that sheds light on violence and society, and how women can get away with murder."

"Remarkable... A pleasure to read. It is also profoundly disturbing, as it is the first significant sustained challenge against mainstream notions about violent femmes."
Quill & Quire
