Pretty Evil Pennsylvania: True Stories of Mobster Molls, Violent Vixens, and Murderous Matriarchs (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


The newest series from Globe features regional history with a true crime twist!

Written by true crime author-experts, each book focuses on the most significant (and prolific) violent female criminals from that state or region. Female killers are often portrayed as caricatures: Black Widows, Angels of Death, or Femme Fatales. But the real stories of these women are much more complex. The author provides a look at the lives of at each killer through primary source materials, including diaries and trial records. Readers will be glued to their seats as they follow the killers through broken childhoods, first brushes with death, and overwhelming urges that propelled these women to commit these heinous crimes. The kidnappings, murders, investigations, trials, and ultimate verdicts will stun and surprise readers as they live vicariously through the killers and the dogged investigators who caught them.

Stephanie Hoover is an author and researcher specializing in Pennsylvania true crime, myths and legends, as well as its 19th century Spiritualism movement.
