In a compelling, linear narrative, Miller takes readers alongside as she investigates a brutal crime: the August four, 1892, murders of rich and trendy Andrew and Abby Borden. The accused? Mild-mannered and hugely revered Lizzie Borden, daughter of Andrew and stepdaughter of Abby. so much of what's recognized approximately Lizzie’s arrest and next trial (and acquittal) comes from sensationalized newspaper studies; as Miller types truth from fiction, and as a criminal conflict will get below approach, a gripping portrait of a girl and a city emerges.
