Waterstones Says

An extraordinary read both for its definitive account of the horrific crimes of the Golden State Killer and the portrait of obsession in researching the case that ultimately contributed to McNamara's untimely death, I'll Be Gone in the Dark is a slice of true crime writing like no other.

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.

“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
