- So nice to hear from a perceptive Lizzie-ite like Laura!
Yes, of course Private Disgrace is the best book. Too many critics get
bogged down with the epilepsy thing and some minor truth stretching.
Lincoln cleaves right to the core of the case.
I've said this many times - It's not a who-dunit? It's a why she did and
how she got away with it. That's the fascinating mystery of the case!
I just finished reading "Miss Lizzie" by Walter Satterthwait. It's a novel
set in a 1921 seaside resort near Cape Code, where Lizzie turns detective
and helps a young girl solve her stepmother's murder (strangely similar to
Abby's killing). Of course, everyone suspects Lizzie but the young girl,
and they both work together to expose the real killer.
Sort of a guilty pleasure, but I loved it. Plenty of excellent insight into
the post murder "Lizbeth" phase, which I am currently researching. And of
course the solution to the Borden murders as well.
I recommend it to the group. A good mystery to curl up with on a cold
weekend. And Lizzie to boot!
