Publisher's Summary

Over a three-decade span, more than 20 women - many teenagers - died mysteriously in the small towns bordering Interstate 45, a 50-mile stretch of highway running from Houston to Galveston. The victims were strangled, shot, or savagely beaten.
The day she vanished, Colette Wilson waited for her mother after band practice. Best friends Debbie Ackerman and Maria Johnson loved to surf and were last seen hitchhiking. Laura Kate Smither dreamed of becoming a ballerina and disappeared just weeks before her thirteenth birthday.
In this harrowing true crime exposition, award-winning journalist Kathryn Casey tracks these tragic cases, investigates the evidence, interviews the suspects, and pulls back the cloak of secrecy in search of elusive answers.

Creepy creepy creepy

Well researched and bleeping chilling, this was very hard to put down. These stories very scary and terribly heartbreaking. After reading this one I'm inclined to watch my back, never park next to a van, never go running alone or EVER accept road assistance from a stranger. Lock the car doors and call AAA.

Scary True Crime Mystery - Terrible Narration

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

No. This is a great story - lots of detail, names, and dates. In my opinion, some of the details get lost when you listen to it instead of reading it.

What other book might you compare Deliver Us to and why?

The Stranger Beside Me has a similar feel - the victims are not nameless, faceless shapes. The author gives us a glimpse into their lives prior to their deaths. The author also helps us understand how their murders affected their families. She helps us to care about everyone involved.

How could the performance have been better?

Tanya Eby has an amazing voice - it just isn't right for a story like this. At times, I felt like she hadn't read the story before narrating it. Some of the scenes she is describing are horrific and Eby sounds like she's narrating a Sweet Valley High novel. As far as characterization, that is nearly absent. Each character sounds the same.

What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

Learning more about these cases was interesting. Probably the most interesting section is the one that focuses on a young man who was (clearly) wrongfully accused of two of the murders by a corrupt police force.
