The next meeting of the Runnemede Library Book Club is scheduled for Thursday February 7, 2019 @ 6:30pm in the library.
The book selection for this month is I'll be gone in the Dark by Michelle McNamara. The library has a hard cover copy and copies are available on the Kindle.
About the Book.
For more than ten years, a mysterious and violent predator committed fifty sexual assaults in Northern California befor 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 atmspheric snapshot of a moment in American history and a cilling account of a criminal mastermind and the wreckage he left behing. It is also a portrait of a woman's obsession and her unflagging pursuit of the truth. Uterly original and compelling, it has been hailed as a modern true crime classic- one which fulfilled Michelle's dram: helping nmask the Golden State Killer.
These are some of the books the RPL Club has read. So many books, so little time!
Join any time. 1st Thursday of the month @ 6:30pm in the library.
