Attempts to understand serial murder tend to focus on individual cases rather than the social context in which they occur.

In contrast, this book sets the case of nineteenth-century serial killer Mary Ann Cotton in its full social context.

Drawing from historical records of Cotton's court appearances, it shows how institutions such as the family, economy, and religion shaped the environment she inhabited.
