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 in 1986 he disappeared, eluding capture by multiple police forces and some of the best detectives in the area. Three decades later, true crime journalist Michelle McNamara 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. At the time of the crimes, the Golden State Killer was between the ages of eighteen and thirty, Caucasian, and athletic--capable of vaulting tall fences. He always wore a mask. After choosing a victim--he favored suburban couples--he often entered their home when no one was there, studying family pictures, mastering the layout. He attacked while they slept, using a flashlight to awaken and blind them. Though they could not recognize him, his victims recalled his voice: a guttural whisper through clenched teeth, abrupt and threatening. This book--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.… (mer)

I think true crime just isn't my thing. I had to push to finish this. ( )
  FurbyKirby | Jan 5, 2021 |
Were in just a recounting of a dogged investigation I'd have given it 4 stars for how thorough and dogged it was. Given that the late Michelle McNamara could put a narrative together, knew when to press the gas pedal of a story and when to let up, knew that emotions should be deployed to support a narrative rather than shout over it makes this a brilliant, sad, unforgettable and important book.

Audiobook narrator: excellent

What a great read, flows well even though the original author diedbefore completing. I'm glad they took on the project. So sad that Michelle died before they caught him. Highly recommend if you aren't squeamish about murder details (yeah, there are a bunch! ) ( )

This is a very well researched book.
Michelle McNamara puts her heart and soul into trying to locate the Golden State Killer who terrorised California in the 1970s to the mid 1980s. She leaves no stone unturned in trying to find this horrible rapist and killer.
The ay Michelle writes easily transports you back to the time before Google and Mobile phones, you also feel you get to know Michelle.
She writes a true crime blog that leads her to investigate the identity of the GSK.
She meets with old Detectives, Witnesses and new Detectives, she looks through mountains of paperwork.
DNA advances give Michelle hope that he will be found and that he is still alive.
Sadly Michelle dies before her book is published. She was only 46.
The book gets published and in April 2018 the killer is eventually located his name is Joseph James Deangelo a retired Policeman.
The Police said that Michelle's book has nothing to do with the capture of Deangelo but I think it give so much publicity to the case that it kept it in peoples minds and put pressure on the Police to solve the case.

RIP Michelle and all the victims. ( )

Michelle McNamara, a true crime journalist, spent years researching a case involving multiple rapes and murders in California. She gave the murderer a nickname -- The Golden State Killer. At the time of her unexpected death in 2016 following an accidental drug overdose, she was still compiling her notes and thoughts on the case. This book was published posthumously in 2018 by her widower, Patton Oswalt, and others who worked painstakingly on her notes to bring the facts McNamara had gathered to light. Two years after her death, and only weeks after publication of I'll Be Gone in the Dark, a suspect was arrested in the case -- Joseph James DeAngelo, Jr.

Thank you, Michelle.

I listened to the audio book version of this story, and it was a hard listen. Not because of anything wrong with the story....the writing is amazing, the facts well researched and the story is compelling. But....it's hard to think about all those people this killer victimized over more than 40 years without getting caught. He started with rapes in the late 70s and progressed to murders. He managed to live his life and walk in the open for decades. Until now. With DNA evidence pointing to him as the killer, DeAngelo is most likely the killer. It's not over until a conviction is handed down....but I have to say that I do not have any sympathy for the 72-year old, frail-looking old man who most likely terrorized multiple people in California for decades. No sympathy at all. At the end of McNamara's book she states that someday she hoped a car would pull up in his driveway and he would open his door to the police. Then his face would no longer be a secret....and he would be finally caught. I hope somewhere in the cosmos, Michelle knows they got him. Finally.

I have total respect for Patton Oswalt, Researcher Paul Haynes, Author Gillian Flynn (she wrote the introduction to the book) and everyone who worked so hard to publish Michelle's thoughts, research and insights into this case. What a brilliant way to honor an intelligent woman who left too soon....who was gone before she was finished.

So, while I found this book disturbing (who wouldn't?) it is brilliant and a triumph. I have to say that some of the descriptions about victims who heard slight noises at night and woke up to this rapist and killer lurking in the dark in their bedrooms was the stuff of nightmares. I slept with my chihuahuas and my pit bull for two nights while listening to this book.....comfort and protection. :)

Narrated by Gabra Zackman, the audio book is just over 10 hours long. Zackman's voice is strong and pleasant. I enjoyed her reading. I have partial hearing loss, but was easily able to hear and understand the entire book. All in all, an informative and enjoyable listening experience, even though the topic itself is disturbing by nature.

HBO is currently working on a docu-series based on this book. I can't wait to watch it! I will probably need all of my dogs....and my cats....sitting with me as I watch it. ( )

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"
