Vengeful Queen Joan, who made her husband's assassins pay a fearful price for their treason. . Beautiful Jean Livingston, who bravely faced The Maiden after murdering her abusive husband. . Child killers Helen Torrence and Jean Waldie, who sold their victim to anatomists. . Baby farmer Jessie King, who dealt in flsh... and death. .
