Hardback. 1st US Edn. On that hot August morning in 1892, the house was locked. The maid was outside washing windows. Lizzie Borden was downstairs; her sister, Emma - or so the story has always gone - was visiting friends in a nearby town. As Lizzie's stepmother, Abby was tidying the upstairs guest room, she was brutally hacked to death, her head almost severed from her body. An hour and a half later, her father, Andrew came home for his daily nap and was similarly mutilated on the sitting room sofa. A week later the police arrested Lizzie, a Sunday-school teacher and ardent church worker and charged her with the murders. The untold story - with its startling solution, of Lizzie Borden and the most famous and fascinating of all American murder cases. Frank Spiering was the author of the controversial book 'Prince Jack' which named a member of the British royal family as Jack the Ripper. Illus., Notes and Index. 242pp. 8vo. Vg+ in Vg. dw. which has small closed tear on lower cover and tiny nick to fore-edge.
