Along the Rails: A Juror’s Journey takes the reader on an emotional ride through the details of the Capital Murder trial of The State of Texas vs. Angel Maturino Resendiz, known as the infamous "Railway Killer". The author served as a juror on the 2000 high-profile trial which included horrific details of one of this nation’s grisliest serial killer crime sprees in recent memory. The writer’s jury experience, which became this book, was emotional and explosive from start to finish. The book allows the reader a rare look inside the isolated world of capital murder jury service.  The details of the trial’s impact left on 12 people from diverse backgrounds are explored in all their emotional rawness.

Great story about the Houston railroad killer from a jurors perspective. The juror is also a friend. He had some interesting insight into how a capital murder trial jury works. Read full review

About the author (2007)

Thomas McHenry was born in Houston, Texas and is a self professed member of the “baby boomer” generation.  He attended Texas Tech University majoring in Journalism and moved back to Houston to attend college locally, changing his major to Theater Arts. It was during this time that he began a career on the stage working as a “traveling actor” with a small theater company. After several years of fulfilling his ambition of acting (and very little money), he changed course and elected to go into the travel industry. His career in the international airline industry took him to Chicago, New York, Los Angeles and ultimately back “home” to Houston. It was when he was chosen to serve as a juror on a highly-publicized capital murder trial in 2000 that he put pen to paper and began to record the dynamics of the trial as it unfolded. The result of this experience ultimately became, “Along the Rails: A Juror’s Journey”. This is his first book and he is at work on his second. He is currently reentering the acting profession, having completed study at the Acting Corp. in Los Angeles. He has recently completed a role in the feature film, “Spiritual,” due to be released in 2007.
