In nineteenth-century Austin, Texas, a ruthless murderer terrorized the city in what would soon become a story more shocking than any fiction.

In the late 1800s, just as Austin was on the cusp of emerging from an isolated western outpost into a truly cosmopolitan metropolis, a series of brutal murders rocked the burgeoning city and shook it to its core. At the time, the concept of a serial killer was unknown and unimaginable, but the murders continued, the killer became more brazen, and the citizens’ panic reached a fever pitch.

For more than a decade, Texas Monthly journalist Skip Hollandsworth has researched this gripping tale of murder and madness that plays out like a well-crafted whodunit. With vivid historical detail and novelistic flair, Hollandsworth's The Midnight Assassin: The Hunt for America's First Serial Killer brings this terrifying saga to life.

Skip Hollandsworth is not just a Lone Star treasure, but a national treasureSerial killers, we all know, tend to use the same method over and over again.What's sort of weird with that book is that Hollandsworth lays out a bunch of false trails that I kept thinking were going to evolve into a theory about who the killer actually was, but they never didMayor John Robertson described Austin as "on the verge of a golden new era."

The tell you the power of marketingLikewise, the case was quickly forgotten again, I would suspect because of the 14 maximum deaths one could attribute to the Midnight Assassin, all but four were black women and men (seven murders in Austin, one possible murder in San Antonio, two likely murders in Gainesville, two who died indirectly as a result of precautions they had taken to protect themselves, and two whose lives were shortened because of wounds they received)Mollie was a pretty young woman, about twenty-three years of age**.Try as I might, I could not get through this bookThe cast of characters is too large and too little is known about themThis is true crime of high qualityHollandsworth has a great storytelling voice, and writes about history in a way that makes it come aliveThis book is well researched, well written and flows easilyThe killer is likened to Jack the Ripper and there is even an attempt to link the crimes to the same man 48a4f088c3
