Description

The Golden State Killer. The East Area Rapist. The Original Night Stalker. The Visalia Ransacker.

The monster who preyed on Californians from 1976 to 1986 was known by many aliases. And while numerous police sketches tried to capture his often-masked visage, the Golden State Killer spent more than 40 years not only faceless, but nameless.

For his victims, for their families and for the investigators tasked with finding him, the senselessness and brutality of the Golden State Killer's acts were matched only by the powerlessness they felt at failing to uncover his identity. To be sure, the chances of obtaining closure - or any form of justice - after so many years were slim to none, at best.

Then, on April 24, 2018, authorities arrested 72-year-old Joseph James DeAngelo at his home in Citrus Heights, Calif., based on DNA evidence linked to the crimes. Amazingly, it seemed, evil finally had a name.

Delivering all-new details about the investigation and a stunning final act to the events of Michelle McNamara's haunting best seller, I'll Be Gone in the Dark, this is the true story of how the suspected Golden State Killer was captured, as told, first-hand, by those closest to the case:

Paul Holes - the forensic criminologist and retired Costa County detective who spent 20 years trying to crack the Golden State Killer case, and finally did.

Jim Clemente (Host) - a retired FBI profiler and former New York City prosecutor who has investigated some of the highest profile criminal cases in U.S. history, including The Unabomber.

Please note: This work contains descriptions of violent crime and sexual assault and may not be suitable for all listeners.

Audible Raises The Bar On True Crime Genre

There's not another true crime book like this. In fact, I'm not sure this is a book. It's a collection of interviews woven together to tell the story of capturing the Golden State killer. It's like a very well put together audio documentary. Instead of giving the single perspective of one author, the book gives many perspectives of people speaking in their own voices. From victims to police, the story goes behind the scenes in a way few books do.

Rank this with the best in true crime.

This was the most compelling book I have listened to in years. It's not like any other audio book.
Interwoven stories, research, interviews, from multiple points of view. If you're interested in true crime, detective work, profiling, sensitive accounts from victims and police investigators... you will be captivated. I can't really say enough about it. 6 hours flew by in a flash. And such a relief to have an ending like this one.

Much respect for the Victims and the Families

Full Disclosure: I am one of the narrators of this project. But I have to say, being given the opportunity to work with Ret. Det. Paul Holes and the Survivor Sisters has been amazing and humbling. They are all true Heroes and Sheroes! The insights they provide and the courage they all displayed is epic.

Bravo!

I’m in awe at the tenacity and strength of, not only the victims of this cockroach, but the team of investigators who have put their hearts and souls into ridding the public of a dangerous killer. This audiobook includes the voices of the victims and their families, a well as the voices of the the main actors in this true crime story. Well done.

Fascinating interviews

An excellent audio documentary in the same very effective format as West Cork, this is a collection of interviews with victims, law enforcement figures, scientists and investigators involved in this recently solved, epic case. If you were mesmerized by Michelle McNamara’s “I’ll Be Gone in the Dark” you’ll find in this book a satisfying resolution to the mysteries she addressed. A must-read for true crime fans.

True Crime Audio Documentary

This is more than an audiobook. It’s a full production including interviews with survivors, investigators and more. I finished it in one day because it’s that good.

Chapter 12

This was well done very informative but also sad and tragic as it should be because what that man did was horrid. GSK was, is a monster and thank God it seems (I believe) he has been captured after so long and will have what's coming to him. Out of all the chapters, the chapter that stood at the most for me was chapter 12. Sitting in my truck, listening at a local grocery store just before I was ready to go in and shop. Couldn't go in until I finished the very and had wiped away the tears. I just can't even imagine.
