User reviews about the book

  • Book Slows In The Middle

    By nrhellyer
    Great writer and story. Very matter of fact. The middle just dragged.
  • I’ll be gone in the Dark

    By Reginaell
    A good read, however, extremely hard to follow. The information was there but the book jumped from place to place. Would have helped to have had a map of some sort, if you were not familiar with the areas. Thank God they got the SOB and may he rot in hell for all he’s done. I hope Michelle knows it.
  • Extraordinary story

    By turg2323
    I read this not long after GSK was arrested. The author was very, very close--uncannily so. She deserves credit for that. The book sags in the middle and I would've liked more psychological detail, more of the profile. I wish she were alive to see him behind bars. I like to believe she's up there smiling, her mission accomplished. RIP, god bless, and well done, Michelle.
  • Killer Caught

    By Mele 113
    One woman search for the truth came to an end. Over a 10-year-period, from 1976 to 1986, the Golden State Killer was linked by DNA and method to 12 slayings, 45 sexual assaults and more than 120 burglaries from Sacramento to Southern California’s Orange County.
  • Compelling!

    By Haircat
    Excellent writing by a passionate lady. So wish she could have known that the GSK EAR was finally caught.
  • Amazing

    By Goatbey
    I so wish so could have seen this man caught. An amazing book there’s been times a night we’re I had to stop reading because it was so unsettling.
  • Riveting

    By Kat1959 22
    One of those books you just cannot put down. Except at night, best read in the daylight. Creepy, intriguing and full of details. The writer makes you feel like you are watching the crimes. So sorry we won’t get more from her, what a loss. I hope she is resting in peace and somehow knows that they finally got him.
  • Fantastic.

    By rachodamn.
    Fantastic read.
  • Page turner!!

    By chalupalytica
    Excellent read for anyone who enjoys the anticipation of true crime
  • Reader

    McNamara wrote compelling prose with more than the usual layperson’s grip of criminal investigation. Her analysis is reminiscent of Ann Rule. The background story of her life is inseparable for readers who are now caught up in the compulsion to see this rapist/killer caught.
