I'LL BE GONE IN THE DARK One Woman's Obsessive Search for the Golden State Killer

by | Read by Gabra Zackman, Gillian Flynn [Intro.], Patton Oswalt [Afterword]

Contemporary Culture • 9.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Narrator Gabra Zackman delivers this terrifying account of a little-known serial rapist and murderer in the mid-1970s and ‘80s, dubbed the "Golden State Killer." Her calm, objective voice makes the minute details of GSK’s 50 sexual assaults and 10 murders in California chilling. Michelle McNamara, the True Crime journalist and creator of who died suddenly while writing this book, became obsessed with finding the killer of these unsolved cold cases. She investigated every clue in order to unmask the killer who always wore a mask while attacking victims as they slept in their own homes. McNamara’s research makes for intriguing listening, thanks to Zackman's restrained, intelligent presentation of the grim details.
