The Black Dahlia (Unabridged)

by James Ellroy

Open iTunes to Buy


On January 15, 1947, the tortured body of a beautiful young woman was found in a vacant lot in Hollywood. Elizabeth Short, the Black Dahlia, a young Hollywood hopeful, had been brutally murdered. Her murder sparked one of the greatest manhunts in California history. In this fictionalized treatment of a real case, Bucky Bleichert and Lee Blanchard, both LA cops obsessed with the Black Dahlia, journey through the seamy underside of Hollywood to the core of the dead girl's twisted life.

Customer Reviews

This book is FICTION

James Ellroy's "The Black Dahlia" is pure fiction. I'm not criticizing it as a novel, but it shouldn't be linked to Nonfiction, as it is now. The story bears very little resemblance to the really story of Elizabeth Short and should be kept firmly in the Fiction category where it belongs.

Great Book

The book is completely fiction, but it is a great read. Not as good as LA Confidential but still pretty good.
