Lizzie Borden and Amanda Burton reunite to solve the case of a grisly murder among Jazz Age New York’s elite in this riveting mystery from bestselling author Walter Satterthwait

Sixteen-year-old Amanda is spending the summer with her suave and easygoing uncle John at the Dakota Apartments, opposite the green sprawl of New York’s Central Park. When John isn’t doing something mysterious with stocks and bonds, he and Amanda enjoy the very best the Roaring Twenties have to offer. However, in a single brutal night, everything changes. Suddenly, Amanda is alone, far from home, and fighting for her life in a city that has abandoned her.

Fortunately, there’s one person Amanda can trust: Miss Lizzie Borden. Together, they'll manage to work out a twisted passage toward what might be survival through the narrow streets of nighttime New York.


“[A] sparkling sequel to 1989’s Miss Lizzie…The novel’s assured and witty voice…deftly captures the verve of the Prohibition era as well as its unsavory edges." —Publishers Weekly

“An entertaining amalgam of memoir-cum-murder mystery that rehabilitates (however improbably) the reputation of a woman who has become an enduring legend.” —Publishers Weekly on Miss Lizzie

“An entertaining narrative that mixes 1921 New England ambience, budding romance, bareknuckle fisticuffs and a suitably spooky finale.” —The New York Times on Miss Lizzie
