She's terrified of her live-in boyfriend who is an abusing, gun-toting drug dealer for the South Philly mob. Mary remembers the guy from high school too - she had a major crush on him. Before Mary knows it, Trish vanishes. A dead body turns up in an alley, and Mary is plunged into a nightmare - that threatens her family, her job and even her life. Mary goes on a one-woman crusade to unmask the killer, and finds love in a very unexpected place. Along the way, she's forced to confront some very uncomfortable truths about her past and the profound effects of lifelong love - and hate.

Lady Killers from the Author: Tori Telfer. Inspired by author Tori Telfer's Jezebel column “Lady Killers,” this thrilling and entertaining compendium investigates female serial killers and their crimes through the ages. When you think of serial killers throughout history, the names that come to mind are ones like Jack the Ripper, John Wayne Gacy, and Ted Bundy. But what about Tillie Klimek, Moulay Hassan, Kate Bender? The narrative we’re comfortable with is the one where women are the victims of violent crime, not the perpetrators. In fact, serial killers are thought to be so universally, overwhelmingly male that in 1998, FBI profiler Roy Hazelwood infamously declared in a homicide conference, “There are no female serial killers.” Lady Killers, based on the popular online series that appeared on Jezebel and The Hairpin, disputes that claim and offers fourteen gruesome examples as evidence. Though largely forgotten by history, female serial killers such as Erzsébet Báthory, Nannie Doss, Mary Ann Cotton, and Darya Nikolayevna Saltykova rival their male counterparts in cunning, cruelty, and appetite for destruction. Each chapter explores the crimes and history of a different subject, and then proceeds to unpack her legacy and her portrayal in the media, as well as the stereotypes and sexist clichés that inevitably surround her. The first book to examine female serial killers through a feminist lens with a witty and dryly humorous tone, Lady Killers dismisses easy explanations (she was hormonal, she did it for love, a man made her do it) and tired tropes (she was a femme fatale, a black widow, a witch), delving into the complex reality of female aggression and predation. Featuring 14 illustrations from Dame Darcy, Lady Killers is a bloodcurdling, insightful, and irresistible journey into the heart of darkness.

Ladykiller from the Author: Donna Fielder. The true story of a Texas cop and wife-killer—and the unbelievable perversions of justice that almost set him free. On July 6th, 2002, schoolteacher Virginia “Viki” Lozano, mother of an eleven-month-old and wife of a Denton, Texas, police officer, died from a gunshot wound the day after her sixteenth wedding anniversary. Her husband, Bobby, claimed that she must have been cleaning his gun and it went off. In bed. In the middle of the night. While she was lying down. Despite his being a known lothario and serial adulterer, authorities still wondered: Could Bobby Lozano, one of their own, really have committed such a crime? In a startling twist, Viki’s mother not only stood by her son-in-law, but continued to share a home with him, even after he was indicted for the murder of her own daughter. Even more shocking, the indictment was vacated when the DA, in a sworn affidavit, said that the medical examiner had changed his mind and ruled the death a suicide. Case closed. For six long years the case languished in limbo...until one reporter discovered that the DA’s affidavit was full of lies, and her exposé blew the lid off the case. The fight to avenge Viki’s brutal murder was just beginning. From the Paperback edition.

Lady Killer from the Author: George Harmon Coxe. Smuggling leads to murder, with Kent Murdock caught in the middle. When the Kemnora, a stately liner on her maiden voyage, docks in Boston, Kent Murdock is there to cover the story. He's joined by Harry Felton, a reporter and one-time foreign correspondent in France. As they leave the port, Murdock notices customs officials working over some passengers, but leaves without a second thought. After all, reporters are never bothered at customs. Only later does Murdock learn that he left with a small package in his camera bag, hidden there by someone on the ship -- and retrieved later by Felton. He goes to ask Felton why he was used as an unwitting smuggler, but finds the reporter dead on the floor of his apartment. Whatever was in that package was worth killing for, and Murdock will find it, even if it means becoming a target himself.
