I ll be gone in the dark

We are looking for reading groups who enjoy authors such as Gillian Flynn and American true crime and who would review this book online and on social media.

I’ll be Gone in the Dark is the haunting, compelling story of one woman’s 30 year obsession with a serial rapist and murderer in California through the 70s, 80s and 90s. It’s perfect for fans of Making a Murderer, OJ: Made in America, S-Town, the early novels of Stephen King and Zodiac.

I’ll Be Gone in the Dark—the masterpiece McNamara was writing at the time of her sudden death—offers an atmospheric snapshot of a moment in American history and a chilling account of a criminal mastermind and the wreckage he left behind.
