For the third episode of our true crime book club, we’re finally getting around to Michelle McNamara’s I’ll Be Gone in the Dark. Of course, it’s only been out a few months, but it’s already a classic. This is not only because it’s well-written, but because McNamara’s work may have contributed to the recent identification and arrest of its subject, the so-called Golden State Killer.
There are a lot of fictional amateur detectives; Michelle McNamara was the real deal.
The book is included in the price of your ticket – we’ll even mail it to you – Right Here.
