Series: Box Set
I had never even heard the term 'misandry' before (hatred of men). So that was new and exciting for me to learn. I was even more thrilled to discover a very cool blog dedicated to maintaining an index of female serial killers called Unknown Misandry. Most impressive and informative. Check it out when you have a chance.
After reading this collection in its entirety, it's obvious Perrini's strength lies in writing longer, more in-depth cases. In those ones, her writing shines. The way she recounts the cases is most compelling. The shorter cases, however, weren't as shiny. Perhaps it was a lack of available information. I'm not sure. But there were a few cases that made me wonder why they were even included they were so brief. There were also a lot of typos in this edition. That's not usually a problem for me since I beta read for a few authors. I usually don't mention typos in reviews if there's only a scattered few, but in this case, I figured I'd give fair warning in case you are the type of reader that gets really distracted by them.
Overall, it was a good read. Many surprises and most informative. And like I said, the longer accounts are remarkable and fascinating. I would recommend it to true crime fans with that one disclaimer about typos.
