7 // I‘LL BE GONE IN THE DARK // “‘Why are you so interested in crime?‘ people ask me, and I always go back to that moment in the alley, the shards of a dead girl‘s Walkman in my hands. I need to see his face. He loses his power when we know his face.” ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

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.

Thedrunkstrawberry I listened to the audiobook! So so good. I‘d recommend the 2nd season of the podcast Criminology. The whole season is dedicated to the golden state killer. 1y
Crazeedi I read the book, I thought the part she wrote was great, the rest finished by husband and publisher, not so much, not well done. I read she passed from a mix of mess in her body. Very sad 1y

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?

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

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

Why am I listening to this when:

1. It‘s night
2. I live in Sacramento
3. My husband is out of town

ReadingSusan Oh my god! Don‘t do it! It‘s too scary to read at night 🤣 1y
MinDea Hahaha. I am really enjoying this book. And while I don't think it is scary while reading it I do find myself wondering for quite some time at night about how safely locked up my house is at night 🤔😆😆😆😆 and wondering if I should get an alarm system now. 😏 1y

JenReadsAlot You are one brave woman!! 1y
Jinjer You are brave!!!! I was a nervous nelly thinking about how easily he got in the houses. 1y
callielafleur It didn't freak me out as much as Helter Skelter, but I was definitely listening for noises in the house at night for awhile after! 1y
SandyW Not something I could do! 😬 1y
jmofo @callielafleur same on both counts! Yipes stripes! 1y
Crystalblu I was freaked out and I live in Grass Valley! My friends dad worked with him for a brief time in Auburn. All a little too close to home! 1y
alvingregorio How did you do? I live in the Tri-Valley right off 680 so I was freaked out every night! 1y
alvingregorio @MinDea but even with locks, he was able to get in undetected. 😬 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! 1y
Monica5 I loved it 1y
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

Murder time 🔪🔪

Just finished I‘ll be gone in the dark and just started Helter Skelter.

I was hooked with I‘ll be gone in the dark. It breaks my heart that Michelle didn‘t finish this and that she didn‘t see the outcome of this case. I did enjoy her writing style so much more, her way with words painted a perfect picture. Plus Paul Holes is just amazing

RebeccaRoo7 Yes, Paul Holes!! What a man. SSDGM! 2y
