Product Details


“Like a historical version of ‘Law & Order,’ the book chronologically reviews and defines the case in lively prose…Miller presents the macabre subject matter so objectively that readers will find their opinions of Borden’s criminal potential shifting from chapter to chapter.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Fans of the podcast Serial will find much to enjoy here, as each chapter reveals a new piece of the puzzle and examines it from every angle available…Sure to be a hit with true crime fans everywhere.” —School Library Journal starred review

“The high-appeal topic will attract many readers, and the suspenseful account will have them trying to solve this still unresolved murder mystery.” —Kirkus Reviews

“…an exhaustive look at the famous unsolved murders of August 1892…Miller relies on newspaper accounts and court transcripts to create lively scenes filled with authentic dialogue, making for a suspenseful crime story, which is all the more intriguing for its lasting doubt.” –Publishers Weekly
