Review

"I enjoyed this book immensely. From one of my favorite cases (Lizzie Borden) to the story of Aileen Wuornos, R.J goes into the dark secrets and the details behind the crimes committed by some of our most notorious serial killers. This is a well crafted book that has obviously been researched extensively. The females serial killer is relatively rare in contrast to her male counterpart, but when a woman kills, she can be just as vicious and deadly, as evidenced here in R.J. Parker's book "Women Who Kill."  Fascinating, creep, and extremely informative."

Carl Hose, Author and Musician
 
"Pleased with this book as I have been with this author's other titles. Includes details on women serial killers which most authors shy away from. I like his style as an author both in his books and out of the book. Did you know he gifts many,many books to men and women in uniform, etc?? Excellent author here!!"

I am saddened to see so many poor reviews of this book. I think so many could have been prevented. There were several people who complained the book was too short. It clearly states that the length is 102 pages. Others had an issue that the author didn't give a lot of information about each individual case. There are nine chapters that break down the kinds of killers and killings. Then the author discusses twelve separate cases. Please do the math before purchasing and having high expectations for a long novel that goes into extreme depths about each murderer. If that's what you're looking for, I recommend you purchase a book that focuses on one woman at a time. I am giving Women Who Kill 5 stars because I got everything out of it that I anticipated. I got a glimpse into the minds of these women and their sadistic nature. I learned about what made them tick. Contrary to what a fellow reviewer stated, this is much more than a published essay. There are plenty of details to keep you reading; enough so that I'm looking forward to reading more of Mr. Parker's books. It's also great for busy moms who can't read for lengthy periods! I had just enough time to learn about another deadly lady before I had to put my Kindle down.

Did not care for this book. Was very, very poorly written. Was it an essay that he had had published?

Good book, I like the short stories, that don't delve into too much court (boring stuff). Interesting to get just enough info on each crazed woman who kills. I like RJ's books, they are easy and quick to read.

This novel combines brief and incomplete research with clumsy expression. Also the sarcastic interjections from the author detract from the serious nature of this genre and are disrespectful to the victims of these criminals. I would recommend Ann Rule or Paul Kidd to anyone considering this novel.

I read this on my Kindle and I'm glad it was free because if I purchased the book I would be extremely upset. I read 3 chapters, each chapter is about 2-3 pages in length and I could not go on. It is written like a fifth grade term paper with an extremely light weight synopsis of each of these female murderers. It reminds me of a blurb you would read in an old Encyclopedia Britanica on each of these people. If your looking for something in depth on these particular cases this is not for you. Quite frankly, even if you have a Kindle and can download this for free, I don't recommend it. It's not worth the effort.

Unfortunately I know about women who kill. No, I don't know all of them. Thank God! But, I personally know of two bitches from hell who planned, conspired and carried out the arsenic poisoning of my millionaire ex-husband. When I was helping law enforcement solve the murder, I did a lot of research and learned a lot about women who kill. I wrote "Fighting the Devil" an award-winning true crime about the heinous murder perpetuated by two very evil women, who pretended to be caregivers while they continued to give poison to the rich rancher until he finally died from extreme arsenic poisoning.
I must say, I think R.J. Parker did a great job telling about women who kill and defining the difference between a women serial killer and a female murderer. One thing in common is these killers are planning on getting away with their crimes. For sure, the Black Widow is the most lethal female killer. These evil woman will kill anyone, a family member, children or adult, friends, acquaintances or anyone they may know. They most always kill for monetary profit. And, the sad part is: most of the time they get away with their heinous murder.
As the author details in this very interesting book, women who kill are at one time in their lives just normal females. Who knows what makes them turn into killers, cunning ones, at that. I don't care what makes them killers. What I do care about is their victims and finding these killers and prosecuting them to the full extent of the law.
I hope this book will open a lot of eyes to the senseless killing that is becoming all too common by what we thought were the weaker sex.

Sadly, this author seems to fail when writing about what seems to be his favorite subject. You would think the book would be filled with facts and information about all the different cases and yet it is poorly written, very briefly touches on each woman, and just seems lacking in all aspects. True crime is a favorite subject of mine - always wondering what were people thinking as they did these horrendous things, and the authors of most crime books are able to grasp some of these details. Sadly, not this author. Waste of time.
