9781450550185: Did Lizzie Borden Axe for It?

Who murdered Andrew and Abby Borden? The Lizzie haters say: "If Lizzie is innocent, why didn't the killer kill her too? Why didn't she see him in the house?" while the Lizzie lovers say: "Andrew had enemies; and besides, Lizzie couldn't have accomplished the murders so cleanly." On Thursday morning, August the 4th 1892, in the safe and sleepy mill town of Fall River, Massachusetts, Andrew and Abby Borden were savagely hacked to death in their home. Their upstanding and respectable younger daughter, Lizzie, was suspected and tried for their murders but was acquitted of the crime. If she was guilty, one can say she severed her family ties in the bloodiest way imaginable. If she wasn't guilty, she is one of the most maliciously maligned innocents that criminal history has ever seen. Unlike most books on Lizzie Borden (which have a theory or agenda), this book instead poses the strongest clear factual arguments for why Lizzie may be either guilty or innocent, without any biased conclusions on the author's part. It also includes striking rare new revelations and anecdotes about Lizzie's private life, in addition to known facts being presented in a new way, and many rare and previously unpublished photographs.

From the Publisher:

The Borden murders took place in Fall River, Massachusetts, and the house where it happened is today a Bed & Breakfast, perhaps the city's most popular and controversial tourist destination. The city has numerous other historical buildings as well, and tourists also come to see the famous battleship USS Massachusetts from World War II. But none of these other attractions come close to matching Lizzie Borden in notoriety, and indeed, popularity.

David Rehak spent eight years (four years of study, two years of research, and two more years of writing and revision) in the production of this book. He became intrigued with Lizzie Borden after viewing an A&E television biography on her in 1996. According to Mr. Rehak, Lizzie was an average, unremarkable woman, and the most extraordinary criminal or criminal suspect in history. Before she was accused of murder, she was a tiny grain of sand, an absolute nobody who no one took much notice of, and who would have lived a low-profile life and vanished from the world's memory like the flame of a candle. But after she was accused of murder, she became an unforgettable symbol and legend, an absolute somebody. The debate on whether Lizzie Borden was innocent or guilty brings out passionate feelings and disagreements in every sort of person. In fact, during the Trial, according to the New York Times, it was estimated that about nineteen hundred marriages ended in divorce because of the intense difference of opinion between husbands and wives that the controversy created. The divide between those who believe she did the crime and those who don't sometimes runs very deep. Did Lizzie Borden take an "axe" and kill her parents?

"Did Lizzie Borden Axe For It?" has been the "best-selling" book on Lizzie Borden since its initial publication, and here it is again in print. This new improved re-edited edition is revised and abridged and streamlined with a focus on better, more interesting and more relevant information, including over 20 new photos. 70 photographs and illustrations in all.
