Men Beware!

The Female of the Species Synopsis

Contains tales, tales in which women are confronted by the evil around them and surprised by the evil they find within themselves. This book demonstrates why the females of the species - be they six-year-old girls, seemingly devoted wives, or ageing mothers - are by nature more deadly than the males.
