Richard Behrens read from his novel “Lizzie Borden: Girl Detective” at the Fall River Historical Society on June 5, 2010. Richard is of the opinion that if you lock yourself into a basement bunker with no windows and no lights, whatever you do there will eventually wind up on YouTube. So enjoy these excerpts from the book as performed before an audience of Fall River residents, Lizzie fans and the curators of the Fall River Historical Society.
