The Black Dahlia murder hit post-War Los Angeles like a bombshell . . . an impenetrable mystery--the haunting crown jewel of LAPD's "unsolved" murders. Even before her savage death, beautiful 22-year-old Elizabeth Short, an aspiring starlet and nightclub habitué, was known as the Black Dahlia--now a magnetic icon in American pop culture, an almost mythical symbol of noir Hollywood. In this expanded edition, John Gilmore plumbs the dark core of this terrifying story that he argues can never be truly solved. Here is the real Elizabeth Short--the enigmatic Black Dahlia. Kindle edition includes exclusive new photos."The best book on the Black Dahlia -- in fact, the only reliable book." -- Colin Wilson"The most satisfying and disturbing conclusion to the Black Dahlia case." -- David Lynch.
