The masterful true crime account of the Golden State Killer – the serial rapist turned murderer who terrorised California for over a decade – from the late Michelle McNamara.
I’ll Be Gone in the Dark offers a unique snapshot of suburban West Coast America in the 1980s, and a chilling account of the wreckage left behind by a criminal mastermind. It is also a portrait of one woman’s obsession and her unflagging pursuit of the truth, three decades later, in spite of the personal cost.
Updated with material which takes in the extraordinary events that followed its initial publication, Michelle McNamara’s first and last book is a contemporary classic – humane, haunting and heroic.
Extraordinary . . . A brilliant, shattering work of art.
Propulsive, can’t-stop-now reading . . . I loved this book.
This is a one sit-down read. That’s how riveting it is . . . True crime reporting at its best.
I tore through I’ll Be Gone in the Dark in two days . . .This book just knocked me over.

So gripping and satisfying . . . [A] chilling, empathetic account.
