Description

** SOON TO BE A MAJOR NEW 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.
