I have been a true crime fan since I can remember. From the books, newspapers, and magazines at my local library, to the documentary tv shows like Snapped and 20/20, to the hours pouring over true crime forums online, I have spent a lot of time learning about crimes and the people who commit them. This book was absolutely fascinating. A book so filled with the true crime obsession I was so familiar with. A person, like me, just interested enough to go out and try to find something new. Michelle McNamara is a voice for all of us who have spent hours trying to solve the seemingly unsolvable. Beyond that, it is a great read. The story flows beautifully between actual events of the Golden State Killer and McNamara's research. If you are a true crime buff like I am, I simply cannot recommend this book enough.
An account of the unsolved Golden State Killer case, written by the late author of the TrueCrimeDiary.com website and featuring an afterword by her husband, comedian Patton Oswalt, traces the rapes and murders of dozens of victims and the author's determined efforts to help identify the killer and bring him to justice. 100,000 first printing.
