Product description

Review

A beautiful work of reporting...I was hooked from the beginning.

-- "Gillian Flynn, #1 New York Times bestselling author"

A posthumous treasure that feels thrillingly alive. Grade A-.

-- "Entertainment Weekly"

In this explosive book, McNamara combines her prodigious research with her impressive storytelling skills and ability to seamlessly weave the narratives of all those lives into one terrifying story...A detective story with an unlikely narrator, a study in changing forensic techniques, a multidecade saga that never loses urgency, and a potent analysis of human behavior in victims, witnesses, investigators, and onlookers.

-- "Kirkus Reviews (starred review)"

It's a journey into two minds, one sick and disordered, the other intelligent and determined. I loved this book.

-- "Stephen King, #1 New York Times bestselling author"

Michelle McNamara was an obsessive. She was also a damn good writer. That combustive mix has produced I'll Be Gone in the Dark, a dark page-turner.

-- "USA Today"

This is true-crime reporting at its best.

-- "Michael Connelly, New York Times bestselling author"

Utterly gripping.

-- "People"

Zackman delivers a stellar performance. Her steady and calm narration helps to ramp up the suspense and passion.

-- "Library Journal (starred audio review)"

Zackman perfectly balances the author's passion with the terrifying nature of the crimes in this true-crime chiller. Her reading is so convincing that it feels as if the author herself is recounting her investigation.
