Thriller Historical | Thriller

In this riveting novel, Erika Mailman interweaves the stories of two women: one, the servant of infamous murderer Lizzie Borden, and the other a modern-day barista fleeing from an attempt on her life. Trapped by servitude and afraid for her own safety, Bridget finds herself an unwilling witness to the tensions in the volatile Borden household. Lizzie, the younger sister, seethes with resentment against her father and stepmother. As conditions deteriorate, Bridget tries to perform her duties and keep her mouth shut. Unknowingly connected to the events of a century before, Brooke, the illegitimate daughter of an immigrant maid, struggles to conceal her identity and stay a jump ahead of the men she thinks want to kill her. When she meets Anthony, an attorney who believes in second chances, she has to decide whether to stop running and begin her life anew.

Employing historical detail and taut storytelling, Erika Mailman has written a chilling novel about identity, choices, freedom and murder. She has recreated the double homicide while exploring the trials and tribulations faced by immigrants, past and present, who arrive hoping for a better life, but instead must navigate the families that try to subjugate them. Intelligent and detailed, THE MURDERER'S MAID is a gripping read from beginning to suspenseful conclusion.
