Summary
Lizzie Borden took an axe and gave her mother forty whacks; and when she saw what she had done, she gave her father forty-one.... The people of Fall River, Massachusetts, fear me. Perhaps rightfully so. I remain a suspect in the brutal deaths of my father and his second wife despite the verdict of innocence at my trial. With our inheritance, my sister, Emma, and I have taken up residence in Maplecroft, a mansion near the sea and far from gossip and scrutiny. But it is not far enough from the affliction that possessed my parents. Their characters, their very souls, were consumed from within by something that left malevolent entities in their place. It originates from the ocean's depths, plaguing the populace with tides of nightmares and madness. This evil cannot hide from me. No matter what guise it assumes, I will be waiting for it.

Summary
If Lizzie Borden really did kill her father and step-mother in 1892, she must have had a reason. Here, author Cherie Priest imagines why. Weaving together the historic sensational crime (of which Lizzie was acquitted) and H.P. Lovecraft-inspired sea monsters, Priest depicts Lizzie living with and caring for her frail older sister while secretly working in her laboratory, trying to determine what turned the elder Bordens into monsters. Her research brings unexpected and horrific results in this intriguing and creepy novel. -- Description by Katherine Bradley Johnson
