Planning a crime often takes a lot of work and some clever thinking. This series profiles women who use twisted ingenuity to come up with elaborate schemes that result in what they think are perfect crimes. No matter the motive -- whether it's power, control or money -- the women stop at nothing to get what they want. The true stories are told through cinematic re-creations and first-person testimony. The show presents each story from the sides of the criminal mastermind and the investigators whose persistent work eventually leads to the perp being brought to justice.
