I'll Be Gone in the Dark: One Woman's Obsessive Search for the Golden State Killer This is Michelle McNamara's last book. McNamara passed away unexpectedly in 2016. She was married to comedian Patton Oswalt. We have people talking about the book here and there on the forum I thought it best to make one thread. Now that we know about the background let's discuss this amazing book. The Golden State Killer: One Woman's Obsessive Search for the Golden State Killer. This book sounds INCREDIBLE. Here is what Stephen King said about the book. “I’ll Be Gone in the Dark will undoubtedly be stocked in the True Crime section, which is fine, but in so many ways it’s a brilliant genre-buster. It’s propulsive, can’t-stop-now reading, which makes it all too easy to ignore the clean and focused writing. What readers need to know—what makes this book so special—is that it deals with two obsessions, one light and one dark. The Golden State Killer is the dark half; Michelle McNamara’s is the light half. It’s a journey into two minds, one sick and disordered, the other intelligent and determined. I loved this book.” —Stephen King Can't wait to read what she has to say. Shouldn't this case be solved by now?
