A white-knuckle tour of women on the edge of hell.
They were once sweet little girls-- sugar and spice, and everything nice. Now they're cold-blooded criminals, behind the bars of America's most dangerous prisons-- hardened women doing their time. How and why did they cross to the dark side? What makes women kill husbands, lovers, family, and innocent strangers? Step inside and meet:
Patty: The prison beauty slaughtered her mother, father, and little brother after falling in love with an evil Svengali twenty years her senior.
Michelle: She lovingly tends the flowers on the prison grounds. Only those who know her best know how she kicked her husband to death.
Cynthia: A typical St. Louis girl-- until she met a jailbird and embarked on a murderous rampage worthy of Natural Born Killers.
Author Wensley Clarkson has used his unique, unlimited access to some of America's toughest prisons to reveal the shocking world of female criminals-- from their illicit love affairs to race relations, prostitution, protection rackets, drug smuggling, and more.
Plus: What happened to notorious criminals Amy Fisher and Pam Smart? Now their tawdry lives behind bars are revealed!
