Review

A beautiful work of reporting...I was hooked from the beginning.

-- "Gillian Flynn, #1 New York Times bestselling author"

This is true-crime reporting at its best.

-- "Michael Connelly, New York Times bestselling author"

Utterly gripping.

-- "People"

A posthumous treasure that feels thrillingly alive. Grade A-.

-- "Entertainment Weekly"

Zackman delivers a stellar performance. Her steady and calm narration helps to ramp up the suspense and passion.

-- "Library Journal (starred audio review)"

Zackman perfectly balances the author's passion with the terrifying nature of the crimes in this true-crime chiller. Her reading is so convincing that it feels as if the author herself is recounting her investigation.

-- "Booklist (starred audio review)"

It's a journey into two minds, one sick and disordered, the other intelligent and determined. I loved this book.

-- "Stephen King, #1 New York Times bestselling author"

Michelle McNamara was an obsessive. She was also a damn good writer. That combustive mix has produced I'll Be Gone in the Dark, a dark page-turner.

-- "USA Today"

In this explosive book, McNamara combines her prodigious research with her impressive storytelling skills and ability to seamlessly weave the narratives of all those lives into one terrifying story...A detective story with an unlikely narrator, a study in changing forensic techniques, a multidecade saga that never loses urgency, and a potent analysis of human behavior in victims, witnesses, investigators, and onlookers.

-- "Kirkus Reviews (starred review)"

Product Description

SHORTLISTED FOR THE GORDON BURN PRIZE 2018

A masterful true crime account of the Golden State Killer - the elusive serial rapist turned murderer who terrorised California for over a decade - from Michelle McNamara, the gifted journalist who died tragically while investigating the case.

'You'll be silent forever, and I'll be gone in the dark.'

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. 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.
