    It will surprise zero people to learn that I am obsessed with the Lizzie Borden and the axe murders of 1892, so when I heard there was a new novel about the case coming next year, I squealed and squealed. If you don’t know Lizzie Borden, she was the OJ Simpson of her time: famously accused of k...

    Trigger warnings: murder. Lots and lots of descriptions of vomit. (That's less a trigger warning and more a don't-read-this-while-eating-lunch warning...) 3.5 stars. I was SUPER excited about this book from the moment I heard about it. I mean, a) that cover is STUNNING. And b) the Lizzie Borden stor...

    Lizzie Borden took an axeAnd gave her mother forty whacks.When she saw what she had done,She gave her father forty-one.Good grief this one was unsettling and not for the faint-hearted by any means. Apparently the Lizzie Borden case is well known - perhaps more so in America? Well, what I will say is...

    Australian author Sarah Schmidt’s debut is a clever, gritty, vision of one of the most infamous unsolved crimes of history, beginning on the morning of the murder, when Lizzie calls the maid, telling her: “Someone’s killed Father”. These things are true: Lizzie Borden was born 19...
