Hardback. Throughout history there have been men who wage war in their own homes; all too often the victim in this 'war' is the woman who finds herself caught in a hail of physical and psychological abuse. Finally, some women fight back. This is a collection of 21 true-crime accounts of previously law-abiding women who killed the violent men in their lives. Women like Kiranjit Ahluwalia who, after suffering 10yrs of violence, rape and sexual abuse, poured petrol over her husband Deepak while he slept and set him alight; and June Scotland who, assaulted since the first week of her 22yr marriage to Thomas, eventually drugged his food and then clubbed him to death with a rolling-pin. Detailed research, including interviews with some of the people concerned, has allowed the authors to show that in these tales of horrific murder there are 2 victims and while these crimes are unforgivable they are, sometimes, understandable. Illus. + Index. 247pp. 8vo. h/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. V. lightly browned pp. o/w Nr. F. in F. dw.
