Description

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • The haunting true story of the elusive serial rapist turned murderer who terrorized California during the 70s and 80s, and of the gifted journalist who died tragically while investigating the case—which was solved in April 2018.

SCIBA Book Award Winner

A Publishers Weekly Best Book of 2018.

Introduction by Gillian Flynn • Afterword by Patton Oswalt

“A brilliant genre-buster.... Propulsive, can’t-stop-now reading.”   —Stephen King

For more than ten years, a mysterious and violent predator committed fifty sexual assaults in Northern California before moving south, where he perpetrated ten sadistic murders. Then he disappeared, eluding capture by multiple police forces and some of the best detectives in the area.

Three decades later, Michelle McNamara, a true crime journalist who created the popular website TrueCrimeDiary.com, was determined to find the violent psychopath she called "the Golden State Killer." Michelle pored over police reports, interviewed victims, and embedded herself in the online communities that were as obsessed with the case as she was.

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. Utterly original and compelling, it has been hailed as a modern true crime classic—one which fulfilled Michelle's dream: helping unmask the Golden State Killer.

Customer Reviews

Such a good read

Just sad Michelle wasn’t here to see the case finally closed.

If you want more after reading this (because you’d better!), listen to the podcast Casefile’s episodes. Incredibly in depth as well. But you still need to read this book.

Fascinating Read

Incredible book. You won’t be able to put it down. It is amazing how the author zeros in on things that may have been speculative when she wrote them, but which were ultimately fact, such as the connection to Citrus Heights, the place where Joseph James DeAngelo was eventually taken away in cuffs.

I’ll be gone in the dark

I’m an Australian father of two boys who has moved to LA to further my wife’s career . This book quickly got a hold of my fears and anxiety . Reading this at night , with kids in bed and sometimes with wife away on business ,heightened the senses to every sound in the house . The doors were locked and double checked . A great read into the primal fear of any family . Loved it
