On January 15, 1947 the tortured body of a beautiful young woman was found in a vacant lot in Hollywood. Elizabeth Short, the Black Dahlia, a young Hollywood hopeful, had been brutally murdered. Her murder sparked one of the greatest manhunts in California history. In this fictionalized treatment of a real case, Bucky Bleichert and Lee Blanchard, both LA cops obsessed with the Black Dahlia, journey through the seamy side of Hollywood to the core of the dead girl’s twisted life.

This fictionalized version of Hollywood's most notorious murder case takes readers on a hellish journey through the movie capital and into a region of total madness.

    " Pure pulp. Three stars for exemplifying the genre without trying to transcend it. "

    " A cool book, dont see the movie it is trash. "

    " a good read, authentic to its period. Hard to read sometimes, if only because the characters are so perfectly frustrating that you occasionally want to reach through the pages and slap them around. Edgy and fraught with tension. "

    " Dark, entertaining, a twisted mix of woman-on-a-pedestal and misogyny. Graphic, politically incorrect, gruesome, yet somehow also funny. Lots of 1940s cop-speak, a sultry, oversexed Hollywood underground. Gritty. Leaves me wondering seriously if the movie could do/did it justice. More to follow at dunceacademy.com. "
