Summary
A fascinating look at some of Australia's most recent and infamous female felons. From Sydney's convicted childkiller Keli Lane (the ex-champion water polo player who kept three pregnancies secret from her partner and the world and whose second baby disappeared without a trace), to Lucy Dudko (the Russian-born Australian librarian who hijacked a helicopter at gunpoint to break her boyfriend out of prison) and Judy Moran (the matriarch of the Moran family convicted of killing her brother-in-law), Crazy Lady Criminals is an anthology of the fascinating cases that have intrigued intrepid crime reporter Libby-Jane Charleston. Recoil in horror as you read about Katherine Knight, Australia's female Hannibal Lecter (the former abbatoir worker was sentenced to life imprisonment without parole for stabbing and skinning her partner, chopping and cooking his body parts to serve to his adult children), as well as the appalling story of the Collie Killers (two schoolgirls from a West Australian mining town who murdered their 15-year-old school friend and buried her in a shallow grave). Crazy Lady Criminals, the first instalment in Hardie Grant Books' new true crime series by journo Libby-Jane Charleston, takes readers on a dark and compelling journey into the shadowy underworld of female criminality where truth is stranger than fiction and facts have to be read to be believed
