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?

Who else has had to keep the lights on at night while reading this?? I'm halfway through "I'll Be Gone in the Dark" and it is beyond creepy and so well written. You should definitely only keep this as a daytime read. #michellemcnamara #truecrime #ssdgm #nonfiction #catsoflitsy

RebeccaRoo7 @Tadams4 They aren't very good at that... 2y
KUBuckeye While reading this, I had a few nightmares and was getting pretty creeped out at night ... and then they caught him and I drove and walked by his house - nightmares stopped! Thus, I really can‘t even scratch the surface here of what all of the victims have had to endure. #ssdgm 2y
RebeccaRoo7 Yes, exactly!! There were multiple times where I had to put the book down and refocus my thoughts on something else. But even then...I could not. What a weird coincidence (or not) and no, I can't eithe!. He was/is a sick man. 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

McNamara‘s investigation into the crimes and psychology of the Golden State Killer was engrossing, and her prose is stunning. The sections of memoir embedded within the investigation reveals the impact of her obsession on her own life. I highly recommend this book!

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.

Authorities believe they‘ve caught the Golden State Killer, a 72 year old former police officer.

I need to read this book. I live in Sacramento, CA and this is big news here.

I think it‘s very sad that the author did not live to see his capture. I can only imagine that she played a huge role in keeping this story in the public eye and pressuring authorities to seek justice for these victims.

Bostonmomx2 One of my very good family friends actually knows this guy from his Auburn PD cop days back in the 70s. I used to love in Citrus Heights in 88-89 or so and only moved back to the Tahoe area when a gal in my apt complex was raped. 2y
kricheal @Bostonmomx2 How crazy to be unknowingly close to this?! 2y
Cathythoughts The book is excellent. I‘m stunned to think he was just still living there all this time... 2y

YouReadMyEyes @Bostonmomx2 Oh my gosh, that really hits home. Crazy. 2y
