Summary

** NOW A MAJOR DOCUMENTARY SERIES FROM HBO AND SKY **

WINNER OF THE GOOD READS BEST NONFICTION BOOK OF THE YEAR AWARD 2018

THE NEW YORK TIMES #1 BESTSELLER
SHORTLISTED FOR THE GORDON BURN PRIZE 2018

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.

Critic Reviews

McNamara was a gifted US journalist who died before she could finish this classy and gripping true crime thriller in which she investigates a chilling unsolved case which came to obsess her for decades. The Golden State Killer was a mysterious and violent predator during the '70s and '80s who perpetrated fifty sexual assaults in Northern California and then moved south to commit 10 sadistic murders, before vanishing without trace. McNamara was determined to unmask this violent psychopath and her book, which was completed by her research assistants, may yet help to do just that.
