True Crime Book Review: Deliver Us: Three Decades of Murder and Redemption in the Infamous I-45/Texas Killing Fields — by Kathryn Casey

MV5BMjMxMDQzNjkwMF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwMDM0MzU0Ng@@._V1_SX214_AL_I went into reading this book with little background knowledge of the I-45/Texas Killing Field Murder. I remembered seeing The Texas Killing Fields movie about a year ago, and was intrigued the the number of victims that had yet to have justice or a convicted individual.

This book was absolutely a page turner. Kathryn has done an excellent job writing in a u34+1F!EVWH7ngw7NLVXIcKIKW2pmYA+Gl!w8rbMsYH!BRIAG5OUet9tcq9F2XjffXkZsjELHH1dotzfe59Az2FupUoD0smiEWQR8Hyz1NeWsW1OYzkgsRAdZgmVYczuchronological timeline of the murders and went into them in as much detail as needed. Without giving too much away, some murders turned out not to be related, and as a result had a suspected convicted. Emotional and captivating writing, I enjoyed the author sitting in the trials, reporting on the the air in the courtrooms, and the response of those important in the story. The personal interactions interviewing those involved in the cases such as police, lawyers, and even the convicted or suspects was a proverbial cherry on top, I thought, very interesting. Although the overall feel of the case itself is somber and heartbreaking. One can only imagine the horrible situation the family and friends of the victims have to endure, especially if their daughter is never found.

The writing flowed beautifully. Sometimes you come across grammar and punctuation issues, unfinished or short, choppy sentences which jar a reader and make it difficult to follow, but not in this instance. It was a highly enjoyable read and I will most definitely be finding more written from this author!
