it was amazing
bookshelves: crime
Read in January, 1999

Gilmore's first-hand knowledge of the old Hollywood underworld brings a compelling realism to this horrific account of an infamous murder. I read this book at a point in my life when I was verging on nervous breakdown, mania and divorce. Gilmore's candidate for the Black Dahlia killer (and he makes a strong if unprovable case) coincidentally had the same name that I'd been using for the villain of some short stories. That pretty well freaked my shit.
