What to Read After Watching HBO’s I’ll Be Gone in the Dark

I’ll Be Gone In The Dark, the HBO miniseries and the true crime memoir by Michelle McNamara on which the show is based, takes specific care in sharing the stories of its author and the victims of the Golden State Killer. McNamara, who was responsible for giving the Golden State Killer his moniker, was obsessed with finding out who the killer was so he could be brought to justice (something that has since happened). With these elements of care and memoir in mind, I’ve collected true crime books that delve into true crime cases with attention to the details of their victims and authors.
