Black Dahlia, Red Rose
Black Dahlia, Red Rose: The Crime, Corruption, and Cover-Up of America's Greatest Unsolved Murder | Piu Eatwell
The gruesome 1947 murder of hopeful starlet Elizabeth Short holds a permanent place in American lore as one of our most inscrutable true-crime mysteries. In a groundbreaking feat of detection hailed as "extensive" and "convincing" (Bustle), skilled legal sleuth Piu Eatwell cracks the case after seventy years, rescuing Short from tabloid fodder to reveal the woman behind the headlines. Drawing on recently unredacted FBI and LAPD files and exclusive interviews, Black Dahlia, Red Rose is a gripping panorama of noir-tinged 1940s Hollywood and a definitive account of one of the biggest unsolved murders of American legal history.

For #weeklyfavorites, I‘m choosing the tagged book. I liked the way this book was written. I felt like I was reading a 1940s true crime novel. Before reading this book, I didn‘t know anything about this case. I‘ve heard of Black Dahlia because there‘s a song called Black Dahlia by the band Hollywood Undead and there‘s a band called The Black Dahlia Murder. I went and looked up the autopsy photos online and I had a hard time sleeping after that.

I‘ve been #audiogaming all afternoon with the tagged book. The game I‘m playing on my phone is Cookie Jam. I‘ve been playing for years off and on. Every time I got stuck on a hard level, I would quit playing for a while but it seems like the game developers made the levels a little bit easier because I don‘t stay stuck on a hard level for weeks like I used to. The levels are still hard but the game developers don‘t want people to stop playing.

Here‘s what I‘m reading for my #weekendreads. I just started it and I‘m liking it so far. I like the writing style. I‘m not going to finish it this weekend but at least I‘ve started it.

I decided to start this book. It will work for the #greekmythologychallenge for the prompt “A Book Where The Villain, In Some Way, Wins.” This is an unsolved murder that I don‘t know anything about but I‘ve heard of it. I listened to the first 2 chapters and I like the way it‘s written. I feel like I‘m reading a 1940‘s true crime novel but I like it. I feel like I‘m going back in time but that‘s because I am. I wasn‘t even born yet.

My current audiobook immediately came to mind for #asilentscream.

The Black Dahlia was Elizabeth Short, her life sniffed out on January 15, 1947. Her murderer has never been caught.

This audio is so much more than just a retelling of Short‘s demise though. You get thrown into the atmospheric world of journalists and cops in the 1940s and it is delicious!

Megabooks This may be a true crime I like. You make great true crime recs, but sometimes I get scared 😱 6y
Reviewsbylola 😆😆 I have a serious problem. This one was such a brutal killing but I personally don‘t find it scary. Then again, I‘m probably a bit desensitized by now. 😬 @Megabooks 6y
Kaye This might sound weird, but I‘ve never gotten scared reading any true crime book. The made up horror stories are much more unsettling to me. Strange. 6y

Reviewsbylola I rarely get scared reading anything. I‘m kind of upset about it. I want something to scare the shit out of me. 😆 @Kaye 6y
Robothugs @Reviewsbylola Bahahaha I am the exact same way! It almost makes you sad when it doesn‘t. 6y
emilyhaldi Delicious eh???? 😛 6y

Fascinating. If you're a fan of true crime, pick this book up. This story is a touch different in that the author reveals her own detective work alongside that of those involved in the actual case. The narrative style is reminiscent of Erik Larson and every bit as intriguing.

RainyDayReading I‘ve read a couple of books about the black dahlia murder but this was definitely the most engrossing and well written. 6y

I was so excited to read this book. I actually enjoyed part one, but I stopped reading a few chapters into part two.
