This #1 New York Times bestseller tells the story of Michelle McNamara’s search to uncover California’s ‘Golden State Killer’, a predator who for more than ten years committed fifty sexual assaults and ten murders. He then disappeared, eluding capture by multiple police forces and detectives.
McNamara, a self-made true crime journalist, studied police reports, interviewed victims and collaborated with a dedicated online community to unmask the mysterious criminal. When Michelle passed away unexpectedly in 2016, I’ll Be Gone in the Dark was finished by her husband and fellow true crime aficionados, but not before Michelle’s own work helped lead current investigators and detectives to arrest the man responsible for these crimes.
A surprisingly moving and exhilarating true crime book that demonstrates the power of dedication and collaborative community, and makes you wonder what other mysteries can be solved in this new digital age.
A must read for true crime lovers.
