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.

Review:

Extraordinary . . . A brilliant, shattering work of art., i independent

Propulsive, can't-stop-now reading . . . I loved this book. -- Stephen King

This is a one sit-down read. That's how riveting it is . . . True crime reporting at its best. -- Michael Connelly

I tore through I'll Be Gone in the Dark in two days . . .This book just knocked me over. -- Megan Abbott

A game-changing investigation., Esquire ‘The 25 True Crime Books Every Person Should Read’

So gripping and satisfying . . . [A] chilling, empathetic account., Spectator

McNamara has a real gift for bringing alive the victims, witnesses and cops she writes about . . . A worthy memorial to its brave, engaging author., Daily Telegraph

Secures McNamara's legacy as a virtuoso crime writer while also bucking the conventions of the genre . . Her self-deprecating wit, her intelligence, fearlessness, and her empathy shine through, serving as the perfect counterpoint to the depravity she describes., Los Angeles Review of Books

'McNamara has a real gift for bringing alive the victims, witnesses and cops she writes about, largely avoiding the portentous style favoured in true crime narratives, and is totally unprurient. It is worthy memorial to its brave, engaging author, who died in 2016 aged 46.', Telegraph BOOKS OF THE YEAR
