Skip Hollandsworth, executive editor for Texas Monthly and screenwriter of the acclaimed film Bernie, can now add author to his résumé. This event celebrates the release of his first book, The Midnight Assassin: Panic, Scandal, and the Hunt for America’s First Serial Killer. Set in 1884, the book follows a vicious killer who stalked the streets of Austin for an entire year, striking on moonlight nights and attacking women from every race and class.

The Midnight Assassin is a scrupulously researched, riveting depiction of one of the most chilling and little-known events in Texas history.
