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.

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… (mais)

This was an excellent read that fulfilled my true crime reading needs. Most importantly, this book went beyond just the facts of the case and gave insight into the lengthy and involved process that is required to solve these old cases, especially ones that occurred when law enforcement agencies did not necessarily cooperate with each other. This book also showed how easily an armchair detective can get caught up in the information available online. Although, I would not classify Michelle McNamara as an armchair detective. She definitely hit the streets. She worked through the case as an investigator would -- compiling information and reviewing it to see where the information leads. I do wish that she had lived long enough to finish writing this book because I wanted more of her voice and perspective. I do believe that those who finished this book after her death did their best to maintain her voice and objectives when finishing the book.

Full disclosure that I picked up this book because of the link to Patton Oswalt but this book had me hooked from the start as is evidenced by the fact that it took me a couple days to read it. ( )

Absolutely fascinating look at the exhaustive search for the Golden State Killer. It's a little exhausting to read at times, so I can only imagine how it must have been for McNamara. Reading it with the knowledge that he's been caught can be a little frustrating at times - you just want to scream the details at her. It's also very striking how gifted a writer McNamara is, once her colleagues pick up a chapter after her death (sorry guys). Overall, a great read if you can handle the creep factor. And the unbearable unfairness that she died not knowing who he was. ( )

This seemed like a thing I wanted to read, but I can't get into it, and that's probably for the better.

[Half-formed thoughts about white people with anxiety disorders and our domination of the True Crime Industrial Complex go here.]

Absolutely fantastic true crime read! You can feel all the hours spent slogging through thousands of leads for that diamond in the rough. McNamara's writing in the first handful of chapters creates a story focused around the suffering of the victims and their families. She takes care to protect privacy of the grieving families but still impart important details to the reader. Quite a delicate balance to hold.

After her passing, the novel was completed and built from interview transcripts and incomplete chapters. I appreciate that they did not attempt to copy her way of writing, instead focusing on breaking down the loads of facts that can take the search for the elusive killer in many different directions. The true capping point of the book was the letter to the Golden State Killer at the end written by McNamara. Her words are powerful and direct.

As a reader after the announcement of the capture of the alleged killer, it was unsettling to read about the methods she used realizing the exact same process is what eventually brought justice to lives of victims and their families. All and all a really good read.

i am not one to read true crime. The story of the write appealed to me more than the crime story. All the work she put into her book and research I felt did have an impact on keeping the crimes in the minds f the people who did solve this. ( )

No butler, no second maid, no blood upon the stair.
No eccentric aunt, no gardener, no family friend
Smiling among the bric-a-brac and murder.
Only a suburban house with the front door open
And a dog barking at a squirrel, and the cars
Passing. The corpse quite dead. The wife in Florida.

Consider the clues: the potato masher in a vase,
The torn photograph of a Wesleyan basketball
team.
Scattered with check stubs in the hall;
The unsent fan letter to Shirley Temple,
The Hoover button on the lapel of the deceased,
The note: "To be killed this way is quite all right
with me."

Small wonder that the case remains unsolved,
Or that the sleuth, Le Roux, is now incurably in-
sane,
And sits alone in a white room in a white gown,
Screaming that all the world is mad, that clues
Lead nowhere, or to walls so high their tops cannot
be seen;
Screaming all day of war, screaming that nothing
can be solved.

- Weldon Kees, "Crime Club"
