A “compelling” deep dive into the case that rocked Houston, Texas: the horrific murder of two teenage girls—by the bestselling author of Strangler (Suzy Spencer, New York Times–bestselling author).
“We gotta kill ’em. They know what we look like.”

But in the halls of justice, nothing is ever a sure bet . . .
