If you are looking for a great read about women who have committed murder in the Victorian era, this is THE book. I really enjoyed the way the chapters were broken up into two murders that were similar. There is in depth study of each case, the history, and the cases.
If you are looking for a story, this will not be the book. If you are looking for a historical study, this IS the book to read.
I am giving four instead of five stars ONLY because there may have been a little too much information. I couldn’t get some of the facts to relate to why the crimes occurred for a couple of the women.
I do recommend this book for anyone interested in a study of murders committed by women. I was given the opportunity to ready this Victorian Murderesses by Mary S. Hartman by NetGalley.
