When a woman commits murder, she’s often given a label: “The Woman Who Snapped,” “Black Widow” or “Angel of Death.” Do these labels help us explain why women murder, or do they mask the truth? Join the true crime writer Tori Telfer as she uncovers what drives women to kill, presented by CBS All Access.
Raymond Fernandez was a con artist, charming women out of their savings and then disappearing. But when he met Martha Beck, she joined him on his crime spree, and the cons became deadly.

Join the true crime writer Tori Telfer and notable guests as they unpack the intrigue, psychology and history of the “Bonnie,” presented by CBS All Access.
