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)

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. ( )

A really well written book. Be prepared because there is some serious bad shot that goes down. Not for the faint of heart. ( )
  cdaley | Nov 2, 2023 |
I've never read a true crime book before and to be honest I don't know that I ever will again. There are a few reasons for that - the first being is that Michelle McNamara did such a phenominal job with this book that bar has been set pretty high. Such a gifted writer. The other is that I normally read at night and come to find out true crime scares the hell out of me in the dark when everyone has gone to sleep. I'm glad I didn't dive into this before knowing that the killer had been caught. That would have left me frustrated and probably more frightened. A really great read that left me satisfied and needing a break from non-fiction for a bit. ( )

The Golden State Killer was one I had never heard of before hearing of this book. I heard about it on booktube when it was first published and so many people I follow were reading it. This true crime book was not in chronological order which threw me off at times. I wonder if it would've been more effective that way, but the way the novel was presented (which almost seemed to be in random order) allowed the author to showcase her immense knowledge and obsession with this sinister man. The first line of the prologue was by far my favorite: "That summer I hunted the serial killer at night from my daughter's playroom". This line offered insight into how deeply Michelle McNamara was invested in finding this killer.

Things I loved: there were so many details about this (at the time) unknown man's life, it was really interesting to compare what they know about the killer now that he has been identified as Joesph DeAngelo and what they thought about him then, references to a few other books on forensic science and the East Area Rapist/Golden State Killer

Things I didn't love: many of the chapters endly abruptly (which makes sense as the author died will writing it and her researchers finished it for her)

There were over 50 rapes believed to be committed by this man. I lost count of how many were covered in this book, but definitely not all of them. I feel like there could have been more (and probably would have been more if the author was still living) details and cases covered.

I did not read this book as quickly as I could've partially due to schoolwork getting the best of me. After all, finals begin 3 days from the time I am writing this review. Additionally, this book holds some horrifying and gruesome information within. I feel that this is to be expected when reading about a serial rapist turned killer, but it could become quite disturbing at times. As someone interested in true crime and forensics, I really enjoyed this book. ( )

I don’t think I would have been able to read this before the GSK was finally arrested. This can be a tough read at times. I definitely was checking my windows more while I was reading this.

The writing is outstanding, and it is very clear how close she was to finding him. It was only a matter of time. This book is one of a kind and an excellent read. I think it might be the best book I have read in 2018. ( )

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"
