    In the late 1800s, the city of Austin, Texas, was on the cusp of emerging from an isolated western outpost into a truly cosmopolitan metropolis. But beginning in December 1884, Austin was terrorized by someone equally as vicious and, in some ways, far more diabolical than London's infamous Jack the Ripper. For almost exactly one year, the Midnight Assassin crisscrossed the entire city, striking on moonlit nights, using axes, knives, and long steel rods to rip apart women from every race and class.

    Cowboy Bob was a master bank robber, robbing countless banks for thousands of dollars and confounding cops along the way. He would rob banks without a weapon, without any apparent muscle or accomplice, and he'd steal license plates to throw police off his trail. The police had a lot of questions and theories when it came to Cowboy Bob, but the last thing they would have suspected was that he was a woman.

    In partnership with Texas Monthly, Skip Hollandsworth's "Still Life" is now available as an audio download, where the length and timeliness of a podcast meets the high-quality production of a full-length audio program. Thirty-five years ago, Dallas - and the country - was gripped by the tragic story of John McClamrock, a high school football player paralyzed during a violent tackle. But after the newspapers moved on, another story was quietly unfolding, one of courage, perseverance, and a mother's fierce love.
