From award-winning author and journalist Patricia Pearson, When She Was Bad questions our understanding of violent women.


Why do some women murder their children? Why do others team up with men in ghoulish killing sprees? What motivates the female serial killer?

When She Was Bad explores the enigmatic heart of female darkness, drawing into focus such fascinating characters as Dorothea Puente, who murdered several elderly tenants in her boarding house in Sacramento; Mary Beth Tinning, who killed eight of her children in upstate New York; Karla Homolka, who joined forces with Paul Bernardo to abduct, rape and murder school girls in southern Ontario; and Karla Faye Tucker, the born-again Christian who was executed in Texas for having killed two people with a pickax.

In this provocative book, Patricia Pearson explores women’s innate capacity for aggression, an idea we remain deeply uncomfortable with.

WITH A NEW AFTERWORD

TRUE CRIME: Pearson, a groundbreaking true-crime writer, is the coauthor of Wish Your Were Here, an account of how she and John Allore uncovered an unidentified serial killer who had murdered John’s sister.

HOMEGROWN CASES: When She Was Bad features details from international cases, including Canada’s own Karla Homolka.

MINDHUNTER, BUT WOMEN: For fans of the Netflix series and book Mindhunter, but focusing on the fatal actions of female killers and what motivates them to murder—and why they get away with it sometimes.

PATRICIA PEARSON is the author of six books, and a critically acclaimed journalist whose work has appeared in The New York Times, The New Yorker, The Daily Beast, The Daily Telegraph, The Globe and Mail, and more. Her book about what people experience when they die, Opening Heaven’s Door, was a finalist for the BC National Book Award. She has also won three National Magazine Awards and the Arthur Ellis Award for best non-fiction crime book.

“Groundbreaking.” —The Vancouver Sun

“A compelling, frightening look at women, not as victims of violence, but as perpetrators of it…. Gripping, controversial material that sheds light on violence and society, and how women can get away with murder.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Remarkable…. It is also profoundly disturbing, as it is the first significant sustained challenge against mainstream notions about violent femmes.” —Quill & Quire
