About the Series: Lizzie Borden, Girl Detective Mini-Mysteries
Introducing Miss Lizzie Borden of Fall River, Massachusetts, a most excellent girl detective and the most remarkable young woman ever to take on the criminal underworld in late 19th century New England.

Many years before her infamous arrest and trial for the murders of her father and stepmother, Lizzie Borden pursued a career as a private consulting detective and matched wits with a crooked spiritualist, an agitated elocutionist, the rowdy and deadly sporting boys, a crazed and vengeful mutineer, an industrial saboteur, and a corrupt and murderous textile tycoon—none of whom are exactly what they seem to be.

In these short tales of mystery and adventure, Lizzie Borden is joined by her stubborn and pinchfisted father Andrew; her jealous and weak-chinned sister Emma; her trusted companion Homer Thesinger the Boy Inventor; and the melancholy French scion Andre De Camp. Together, they explore Fall River’s dark side through a landscape that is industrial, Victorian, and distinctly American.

You have met Lizzie Borden before. But never like this!

I read about half of this, the novelty of Lizzie has worn off for me. This story did not engage me.
