About the Book    Hell Hath No Fury takes the reader on a fascinating journey: We meet American outlaw Bonnie Parker; Canada's Machine-Gun Molly; famed Irish prostitute Chicago May; murderous English countess Lady Frances Howard; the feared women terrorists of Germany's Baader-Meinhof Gang; and other infamous women.
   Hell Hath No Fury: Women in Crime is a provocative exploration of nine female robbers, suffragettes and protesters, terrorists, a spy, a prostitute and killers. Nygaard King delves inside the minds of the women and their accomplices, while providing the excitement of a mystery thriller.
