Sarah Pender was an attractive, outgoing, intelligent woman with great potential. But the straight and narrow had appeal for this depraved young woman dubbed 'the female Charles Manson', who knew how to get what she wanted from men - even if it meant murder. Girl, Wanted is a sizzling true crime account of Pender's series of murders penned by Steve Miller and based on personal interviews with the killer in jail.
