Review from Pezz Rambles
This short novella is based on the true story of the I-45 murders along a stretch of Texas highway between Houston and Galveston. While the actual murders didn’t take place there, it has been a notorious dumping ground since the early 70’s.
Denny thought it would be a great ‘lover’s retreat’ to go visit the killing fields of Texas. Kristen is not so hot on the idea, but goes anyway. This turns out to be the worst trip of her life. I love the story behind this. I’m the type of person who would jump at the chance to go digging for details on murders, but not on Halloween.
While it’s not a true story, it’s definitely plausible for a copycat. I could see this having been a longer, more drawn out story and full length novel with the great characters and storyline. If you’re looking for a quick read, go pick this book up!
Review from Cozie Corner
Susan pens “A Killer’s Field” in a plot based on the story of the I-45 murders in Texas. Her characters were believable and well developed to the point where I could feel what was happening around them and to them. A nice short, easy read that will get the hair on your arms standing, and I really would have loved to see this in a full length novel. I would recommend this to all horror fans.
I give “A Killer’s Field” a 4 star rating.
Review from Istyria Book Blog
A Killer’s Field is a very well written, well researched and overall good book. I got through it pretty fast because it’s pretty short but that doesn’t make it less good. I really enjoyed it and it was scary at times.
I immediately saw Susan did her research on this one and that’s very good. Especially when you write about a subject like this one. I liked the characters too. I did think Kristen was a bit stupid when she agreed to come with them just to please a boy. So take that as a lesson from this book. Never give in to your boyfriend when he asks you to come somewhere when you don’t want to. Especially if it’s the place where people were killed. Just say no.
I don’t have a lot to say at the moment about this one. It was pretty short, so it’s a short review too. I recommend this book to people that love horror or thrillers and just want a good short story to read.
