The Psychic Killer

Independent
Free sample

 A serial killer who can read the thoughts of victims and investigators. Detective Mickey Rourke is called to a late night homicide in Queens, New York. The scene resembles a slaughterhouse. The sole victim had been torn apart. A distraught elderly neighbour informs Rourke that the victim was a serial killer - the victim? She then asks the NYPD detective to look "behind the walls" of the apartment. What is found within, sickens a shocked and petrified populace. A serial killer had killed another serial killer leading to a week of carnage with only a female psychic to lead the embattled cop towards safety, closure and peace of mind."This could be the book of the year. The central character's language is reminiscent of Raymond Chandler dialogue spoken by Humphrey Bogart." - Ray Hoy of The Fiction Works.

The haunting true story of the elusive serial rapist turned murderer who terrorized California during the 70s and 80s, and of the gifted journalist who died tragically while investigating the case—which was solved in April 2018.

Introduction by Gillian Flynn • Afterword by Patton Oswalt

“A brilliant genre-buster.... Propulsive, can’t-stop-now reading.”   —Stephen King

For more than ten years, a mysterious and violent predator committed fifty sexual assaults in Northern California before moving south, where he perpetrated ten sadistic murders. Then he disappeared, eluding capture by multiple police forces and some of the best detectives in the area.

Three decades later, Michelle McNamara, a true crime journalist who created the popular website TrueCrimeDiary.com, was determined to find the violent psychopath she called "the Golden State Killer." Michelle pored over police reports, interviewed victims, and embedded herself in the online communities that were as obsessed with the case as she was.

I’ll Be Gone in the Dark—the masterpiece McNamara was writing at the time of her sudden death—offers an atmospheric snapshot of a moment in American history and a chilling account of a criminal mastermind and the wreckage he left behind. It is also a portrait of a woman’s obsession and her unflagging pursuit of the truth. Utterly original and compelling, it has been hailed as a modern true crime classic—one which fulfilled Michelle's dream: helping unmask the Golden State Killer.
