The Female of the Species: Tales of Mystery and Suspense

Overview

A young wife is home alone when the phone rings in So Help Me God. Is the strange voice flirting with her from the other end of the line her jealous husband laying a trap, or a stranger who knows entirely too much about her? In Madison at Guignol an unhappy fashionista discovers a secret door inside her favorite clothing store and insists the staff let her enter. But even her fevered imagination cannot anticipate the horror they have been hiding from her. In these and other gripping and disturbing tales, women are confronted by the evil around them and surprised by the evil they find within themselves. With wicked insight, Joyce Carol Oates demonstrates why the females of the species--be they six-year-old girls, seemingly devoted wives, or aging mothers--are by nature more deadly than the males.
