17 Jul I’ll Be Gone in the Dark
A masterful true-crime account of the Golden State Killer–the elusive serial rapist turned murderer who terrorized California for over a decade–from Michelle McNamara, the gifted journalist who died tragically while investigating the case.
I’ll Be Gone in the Dark—the masterpiece McNamara was writing at the time of her sudden death—offers an atmospheric snapshot of a moment in American history and a chilling account of a criminal mastermind and the wreckage he left behind. It is also a portrait of a woman’s obsession and her unflagging pursuit of the truth. Framed by an introduction by Gillian Flynn and an afterword by her husband, Patton Oswalt, the book was completed by Michelle’s lead researcher and a close colleague. Utterly original and compelling, it is destined to become a true crime classic—and may, at last, unmask the Golden State Killer.
