Just after eleven, on the morning of August 4th, 1892, the peace in a modest residential neighborhood was shattered, by cries of murder. Businessman, Andrew Borden was found by his daughter, Lizzie, bludgeoned to death. Later, his second wife, Abby, was discovered, also hacked to death.
Bridget Sullivan, the house maid had been outside, washing windows, that morning. Oldest daughter, Emma, was away, and Uncle John Morse -- who'd spent the night before with the Borden's -- had a string of unshakeable alibis. That left only Lizzie.
She was arrested, imprisoned for ten months, tried and acquitted of the murders.
Lizzie thought she'd been found innocent, but Fall River deemed her guilty and treated her as a pariah for the rest of her life.
The two sisters lived together for over a decade. Then, something happened that sent Emma storming from the house. Something so awful the sisters never spoke again.
About the Author
I grew up reading classic mysteries and watching 'film noir'. All I wanted was to grab a gat and go on adventures with Phillip Marlow or Sam Spade. Mom and Dad were all right with my insistence on switching from French to Russian in high school, even if the counselor wasn't amused with my reason - I needed Russian, if I was going to be an international spy. They were even okay with teaching me to shoot. However, they frowned on me spending time in smoky bars with fast guys or shady characters. By dreaming up my own adventures, I could live vicariously without the worry of being grounded. Those fantasy worlds led me to writing down all those stories swirling around in my head. So get ready world. Bollinger, Jordan Bollinger is here to sweep you off your heartstrings one bullet at a time.
