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

'I loved this book.' - Stephen King

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.

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 McNamara's 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.

“Captivating and Unique”

It's no surprise that this has been likened to In Cold Blood-this is a truly special book; riveting, unique and heart breaking.

Telling the story of McNamara's obsession just as much as the story of the... More

“Bittersweet”

This was such a lovingly researched book thanks to the obsession for justice from the author. A bittersweet telling in that it was released posthumously, but McNamara would be beyond thrilled to learn that a suspect... More

“Extraordinarily compelling”

I am not usually a big non-fiction reader but this book held my attention from start to end. McNamara's writing is clear, concise and extremely easy to follow, and although the subject matter is obviously... More
