Fatal Females

Micki Pistorius

Penguin, October 2012

312 pages


In Fatal Females, investigative psychologist and former police profiler Micki Pistorius examines the minds and motives of women who kill. Throughout history the view seems to have prevailed that it is not in women’s nature to commit violent crime, but Pistorius shows that this is not in fact the case. Women, givers of life, are indeed capable of ruthlessly taking life. She examines more than fifty documented cases of South African female killers, categorised according to the nature of the crime – for example, infanticide, spree killings, stalkers, poisoners – and she presents her new hypothesis to explain the psychology of that rare individual, the female serial killer.
