"Gripping, moving, and as good as any depiction of a murder case since In Cold Blood. . . . This transcends the genre. Brilliant." --Ann Patchett
"A true-crime page-turner. . . . Lowry exhausts every possible
scenario behind the shocking, unsolved quadruple murder . . . and
offers a theory on what really happened." --New York Post
"Deeply compassionate . . . An agonizing portrait. . . . We're
fortunate to have [Lowry] as our investigator, our cultural
historian, our mourner." --Austin Chronicle "Heartfelt. . .
. Chillingly concise. . . . Lowry works the case from a human
rather than a forensic angle."--The New York Times Book
Review "A page turner. . . . A very real reminder that horror
isn't just a fictional genre. . . . Lowry lets no detail escape her
literary light. . . .These murders shook a city and are sure to
haunt you long after you set the book aside." --Bust "A
story of pain and loss, and how one heinous act that takes four
lives ... destroys so many others. . . . In its swift pacing,
intimate peeks into the characters' lives, and deep research and
reportage, Who Killed These Girls? features everything we
wish for in a book about an event we wish had never happened."
--Los Angeles Review of Books "Gripping . . .
well-researched and thought provoking. . . . A terror-filled thrill
ride which is captivating from start to finish." --New York
Journal of Books
"Beverly Lowry is rapidly becoming the Zola of Central Texas. Her character studies only get better." --Larry McMurtry
