This quarter boasts a 20-story “women who kill” special edition with stories – old and new – from Britain and America.
The friends and relatives of Larissa Schuster were used to her moans and rants about her husband Tim – they seemed never-ending. She even openly boasted that she would kill him if she could get away with it. The difference is, she meant it, and she co-owned a chemical laboratory. But what drives a woman like Larissa down such an evil, deadly path? Read this modern murder shocker and you tell us.

For a woman convicted of only one murder, the universal dislike and revulsion attached to the name of Kate Webster is awesome. Perhaps it was because having boiled up her dismembered victim she skimmed off the fat and then tried to sell it in her local pub as “best dripping!” Meanwhile, are the crimes and execution of the first two women hanged at Holloway Prison.

Tenant farmer William Dove deserves a special mention. A few years into his marriage he was looking for a way out. He was beset by financial worries and his wife was constantly “indisposed” – and he was enthralled by the exploits of Staffordshire poisoner Dr. William Palmer. So did William Dove poison his wife or did she die as a result of black magic?
