I wasn't particularly acquainted with these murders which all occurred along a specific portion of the Texas I-45 near Galveston so it was all pretty much new information to me.  This is my first true crime by this author also and I found her writing incredibly sympathetic to the victims and their families which I always appreciate when reading modern accounts of murder.  This book covers a lot of information and many, many cases while covering a time period from the late '60s to 2000.  Some victims had a short amount of time spent on them while others had chapters while Casey covered trials that brought their killers to justice.  Casey manages to skillfully keep the abundant information from becoming an overload by presenting the Killing Fields' history in chronological order and revisiting cases when new evidence is found while following the future crimes. In the end, Casey names the most likely suspect in each case where viable persons of interest were suspected but evidence wasn't solid enough for an arrest.  She also concludes that the sheer number of small town police, their methods and politics played a major role in the number of unsolved crimes in this area.   I found this a quick, engrossing read and love Casey's writing style.  I'll certainly seek out some of her other books.

I live in houston and remember much of what she wrote about the murders. As a parent, i remember the fear i felt for my own girls when those victims went missing. May now they rest in peace and never be forgotten

This book really hit home for me since I grew up not far from The Texas Killing Fields; I was a young girl when Laura Smither went missing and my childhood was changed because of it. This book brought to life the stories that my mother and grandmother were afraid to tell me growing up, and they were even reluctant to talk about it all now, with my being an adult. If you’re from the Houston are, this book is a must-read; if you’re a woman, this book is a must-read; if you simply don’t want to forget, this book is a must-read. *As an English teacher, there were some sentence structures throughout the book which weren’t solid, and that’s the only reason for my 4-star rating.

This book gives some insight to a handful of the murders which took place in what soon became known as the Killing Fields. My heart ached for the victims & their families.
