I’ll Be Gone in the Dark by Michelle McNamara, book review: A brilliant, shattering work of art | The Independent

“The race was yours to win,” true-crime writer Michelle McNamara confesses to her nemesis at the end of her extraordinary investigation into one of the most relentless human slaughterers in US history. The man she called the Golden State Killer, who with impunity waged an implacable 10-year siege on the California suburbs from the mid-1970s to the mid-1980s, has never been caught. In the final chapter, “Letter to an Old Man”, she imagines this terrifying ski-masked phantom savouring his victory in his twilight years.
