Summary, etc.:
For more than ten years, a mysterious and violent predator committed fifty sexual assaults in Northern California before moving sought, where he prepetrated ten sadistic murders. Then he diasppeared, eluding capture by multiple police forces and some of the bes tdetective in the area. Three decades later, true crime journalist Michelle McNamara 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 obsessed with the case as she was. At the time of the crimes, the Golden State Killer was between the ages of eighteen and thirty, Caucasian, and athletic, capable of vaulting tall fences. He always wore a mask. After choosing a victim -- he favored suburban couples -- he often entered their home when no one was there, studying family pictures, mastering the layout. He attacked while they slept, using a flashlight to awaken and blind them. Though they could not recognize him, his victims recalled his voice: a guttural whisper through clenched teeth, abrupt and threatening.
