Staff Picks (January): A Treasury Of 20th Century Murder — The Black Dahlia
Dec 31, 2017
NBM and Rick Geary continue to provide their “Just the Facts, Ma’am” brand of storytelling with another Treasury of 20th Century Murder. This one's an account of the life, the brutal death, and the dizzying murder investigation of Elizabeth Short, or, as she was known in the press, the Black Dahlia.
In an age where podcasts like You Must Remember This, Hollywood & Crime, and Lore are getting more and more attention, it’s exciting to see similar stranger-than-fiction tales done sequentially. The book provides a complete picture of the victim’s life, and even delves into the very real and very dangerous mafia activity of the time. The Black Dahlia offers a beautiful, if unsettling, account of a gruesome murder from decades past that transports readers to a time before twenty-four-hour news cycles and cell phones; a murder that haunts Hollywood to this day.
Informative and entertaining, The Black Dahlia sends a chill up the spine that’s good for the blood!
