Michelle McNamara, wife of Patton Oswalt, was a true crime enthusiast. She set up a successful blog about true crime where she investigated and traded information on open cases. One case that hooked her completely was the Golden State Killer. Throughout the 1980s across the Golden State, there was a high number of odd cases that involved home invasion, rape, assault and the stealing of oddities from the homes. Enough information and witness statements were collected that made the police consider they had one perpetrator for all these crimes, but they never caught him. McNamara died before the completion of this book and much of it has been pieced together by her husband, comedian Patton Oswalt. The information is taken from her notebooks, finished and unfinished chapters and all the case files and reports she meticuously detailed and kept. It's a fascinating read. Worth mentioning that the GSK was caught just recently and people have mentioned that it may have been down to McNamara's investigative work and this book.
