New Book Review is up! (LINK IN BIO)
#IllBeGoneInTheDark #MichelleMcNamara #GoldenStateKiller
My only thought at the end of this novel was that he was caught this year. He‘s caught. The tragic events cannot be undone, but justice can happen. I hope you see this Michelle from wherever beyond the rainbow bridge. I hope you see it and nod.

What‘s your favorite #truecrime book? Mine is Helter Skelter! I started reading this true crime book from the library awhile ago and never finished it. Now that it‘s October and I have my own copy, I‘m hoping to get back into it and finally finish it. Have you read this book?

jillannjohn I liked this one. I was fascinated by the crazy amount of research she did. Currently reading Helter Skelter. 1y
Pamwurtzler I‘ve not read the tagged book, and don‘t think I could handle Helter Skelter, but I‘ve been fascinated for a while by this true crime - 1y

Reviewsbylola I loved this one. I wish McNamara had been alive to see the killer caught. 1y
Reviewsbylola And I‘m a true crime junkie. It‘s hard to pick a favorite. HS is definitely top of the list. Another one Bugliosi wrote that I love is 1y
Reviewsbylola Also another must read for true crime is 1y
Jess7 I really liked In Cold Blood. I read it many years ago @Reviewsbylola 1y
Mem_ugh Such a a good one! 1y
Copwithabook I really enjoyed this novel. Thats saying something bc true crime has never interested me much (since it‘s what I do for a living). 1y
tracey38 I really want to read this one. This is a different cover than I've seen. Is it out in paperback now? 1y
Jess7 No, it‘s from book depository - I think it‘s the UK cover. @tracey38 1y
tracey38 @Jess7 gotcha! 1y

Yessssss, and this is why I decided to give up on the #audiobook of #illbegoneinthedark and wait for my hold on the physical book to come in. 🙌🏼 All of these references are included in the book📖. The map with a brief summary of the main topics in the book is especially helpful! (It‘s a bit hard to see in this collage). I am really excited to start this one! #currentlyreading #truecrime #librarybooks #goldenstatekiller #eastarearapist

Prairiegirl_reading I‘m waaay too 🐔 💩 for this one!! I would like to read it but I know I wouldn‘t make it through! Lol! 2y
Monica5 I loved it 2y
janeycanuck The audio is supposed to come with an accompanying PDF with all this stuff, I think, but I listened on Scribd and it didn‘t have any of it. Maybe I should have waited for a paper copy, too. Looks like that stuff would be really useful. (edited) 1y

Jess7 Yeah, the audiobooks from the library always say that have a supplement too, but it‘s never readable for me. I think the book will be easier to follow with these references. @janeycanuck 1y
MatchlessMarie Oh snap. Might need to snag a physical copy to accompany my audible audio. Thanks for the heads up! 1y
RachLovesTV I loved the audiobook, but yeah, this would have been super helpful. 😅 Luckily I'm pretty familiar with California geography. (edited) 1y

My favourite book of 2018 (So far). Absolutely heart breaking...for every single victim and for the fact that Michelle Mcnamara can't be here to see some justice finally be served! Her writing style is beautiful and the guys who finished this book did a wonderful job of honouring the years of work she put into this! What a book. What a women. #murderino #mfm #thattruecrimelife #goldenstatekiller #ear-ons #gsk #michellemcnamara #books2018

Layers upon layers...the Golden State Killer stalking his victims; the author & detectives (pros and amateurs) investigating him; and then Michelle's colleagues piecing together her findings to finish this book. And then: the arrest of the suspect after her death, traced through his DNA. I'd love to read more about what they got right (location, for one), & where they were off base. Great read.

This book is brilliant. It truly is McNamara‘s opus and left me baffled and speechless numerous times. The efforts, love and dedication of those she left behind is truly remarkable and honors the spirit and quality of her research and writing. #truecrime #goldenstatekiller

AmyG Agreed. And her writing was so good. Scared me alot. 2y
BlameJennyJane @AmyG definitely!! I see why so many have said they couldn‘t read it before bed. 2y
TheKidUpstairs I just started this yesterday. I had to get up while reading to double check all the locks! 2y
BlameJennyJane @TheKidUpstairs 😂😂😂 And don‘t forget to look under the bed and if someone shines a flashlight... RUN! 2y

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ As a life long crime sleuth & someone with two degrees focused around criminal justice - if you‘re a crime buff THIS IS A MUST READ! This notorious case was unsolved for over 40 years until April 2018 when they made an arrest. I had just finished the book when the arrest was made & having it be unsolved when I was reading this book I can tell you there were a few sections that made my skin crawl. You will defiantly leave a light on!

I cannot wait to dive into this true crime novel! I grew up in Northern California when this guy was going around terrorizing our city and I remember clearly my mother being scared. I know for sure, the police had little to report then, so I'm more than intrigued now that the man has been arrested after decades.

Holy! This book is outstanding! I am so happy I was able to listen to this while they caught the #GoldenStateKiller or #EastAreaRapist. McNamara was such a talented writer and while the crimes were horrific she kept the reader engaged. Just noticed the sticker on this audiobook about a podcast which I will certainly be listening to next! Highly recommend!

Lovesbooks87 It was a good book and I am also so glad they caught him. 48 Hours also had a special about it and it was really good. It was very chilling listening to the audio of him calling some of the victims! 2y
bridge12 @Lovesbooks87 I‘ll definitely have to watch that! I also heard there was a good Casefiles series on it to for a podcast... this is all I‘ll be getting done apparently 🤷🏼‍♀️ 2y
EKonrad Reading it right now! So good! 2y
