I visited a lot of websites on Lizzie Borden and then decided to get William Masterton's "Lizzie Didn't Do It" which I found to be a really good first book to read on this crime. David Rehak's "Did Lizzie Borden Axe For It?", 2008 version, is a really good book to read once you've learned the basics of this case from a few websites. Personally if I were the author, I would have titled it something less cheesy like "Did Lizzie Borden Take an Axe?" instead, but that's just me). Anyway, this book contrary to what I feared, is well-written and well-edited. It nicely covers the many details of the murders, and also includes a lot of additional stuff about Lizzie as a person and her private life which I at least found very interesting. Even the supposed fiction section is so full of facts and plausible scenarios that those things could very well have happened something like that in real life and were entertaining reading. These fun creative chapters with the stories, comedy skits, etc were terrific. I found the book thought-provoking and enjoyable from beginning to end.

There have been many books written about Lizzie Borden, and David Rehak's Did Lizzie Borden Axe For It? makes for quite a unique entry in that list. It doesn't represent an attempt to prove that so-and-so did or did not commit the murders, nor does it delve deeply into the minutiae of all the evidence. It does, however, introduce you to a lot of ancillary yet quite interesting tidbits and speculations about the life of Lizzie Borden. If you just want to know all the gory details of the murders and see someone make a case for Lizzie or some other suspect, this isn't really where you want to start your journey back to the Fall River of 1892. This is a book for those already knowledgeable about the case and firmly in the camp of the fascinated. Of all the unsolved murders that have taken place over so many years, why does this case captivate us so much? What is it about Lizzie Borden that fascinates so many of us all these decades after her death? These are the kinds of questions David Rehak tries to answer here, and that is what makes this book unique.
Naturally, Rehak first lays out the facts of the crime that left Lizzie Borden's father and step-mother hacked to death inside their seemingly sedate Victorian home. The chronology is crucial to this case, as the murders took place over an hour apart, so Rehak naturally takes us through the timeline. Then he offers arguments as to why Lizzie did or did not commit the crime. This is what makes the case so fascinating. When you read all of the circumstantial evidence pointing to Lizzie, you think she had to be guilty; then you read the reasons why she could not have done it, and you would swear she had to be innocent. Rehak goes on to mention possible suspects and comment upon the solutions offered by a few Borden "experts.

I'm not too sure about how to rate this book. It certainly covers a lot of ground as far as research is concerned, but some of the writing is a bit too 'slangy' for it to be taken seriously. And then there are the crass spelling errors : 'pole' instead of 'poll', for example. The writer deserves credit for all the historical delving, but, despite his claim to be objective, a certain bias is obvious. I read it twice, though.
