“Informative, provocative, and challenging…this book is a must-read for those interested in criminal psychology and issues of domestic violence.”

“The topic is crucial, the research exceptional, the conclusions intriguing, and the writing first-class. Killer Dads will haunt you long after you put it down.”
–MIKE PEARL, former police and courts reporter for the New York Post
“A moving and insightful look at a horrifying crime wave in which the weakest are victimized by those they love and trust. Not only does Papenfuss investigate critical cases, she puts them in a social context and makes sense of apparently senseless acts. Her writing is brilliant and clear, and the book is a real page-turner.”
–HANNAH BROWN, author of If I Could Tell You
“A chilling but important book that is distinguished by impeccable reporting and clear writing. Readers will especially appreciate the exploration of solutions to prevent any family’s worst nightmare.”
–GERALDINE BAUM, former New York Bureau chief for the Los Angeles Times
“Papenfuss stares down gut-wrenching crimes we too often turn away from to find compelling tales of love and loss, and the motivations that fuel our most inexplicable homicides.”
–MURRAY WEISS, columnist, New York, author of The Man Who Warned America
