In Black Dahlia Avenger II, bestselling author and veteran homicide detective Steve Hodel presents his six-year follow-up investigation [2006-2011] into Los Angeles's 1947 Black Dahlia and other serially connected 1940s Lone Woman Murders. After the 2003 publication of his NYT bestseller and MWA Edgar nominated true-fact crime book, Black Dahlia Avenger: A Genius for Murder, and receiving a "CASE SOLVED" legal opinion from many of LA's top law enforcement officials-which included a then active Head Deputy District Attorney and LAPD's Chief of Detectives-Hodel didn't stop there. In this investigative sequel he presents his careful deconstruction of the Dahlia Legend-exposing and correcting the Black Dahlia Murder's Three Greatest Urban Myths: Myth No. 1-"It was a standalone murder."

From the Author:

Black Dahlia Avenger II is my six-year follow-up investigation [2006-2012] into the Black Dahlia and Lone Woman Murders from the 1940s. In addition to new witness interviews and crime exhibits it includes hard physical evidence connecting the killer to his home and to the vacant lot at 3815 S. Norton, where he posed the bisected body of Elizabeth "Black Dahlia" Short. I have also included as an addendum to this book, the never-before-published, unabridged LADA Hodel-Black Dahlia Bugging Transcripts.[146 pages] See all Editorial Reviews
