by Steve Hodel, Black Dahlia Avenger Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Black Dahlia Avenger books, For Viewers of the TNT Series I Am the Night and Fans of the Root of Evil Podcast, the Bestselling Book That Revealed the Shocking Identity of the Black Dahlia Killer and the Police Corruption That Concealed It for So Long A New York Times Bestseller An International Bestseller A New York Times Notable Book An Edgar Award Finalist In 1947, the brutal, sadistic murder of a beautiful young woman named Elizabeth Short led to the largest manhunt in LA history. The killer teased and taunted the police and public for weeks, but his identity stayed a mystery, and the murder remained the most tantalizing unsolved case of the last century, until this book revealed the bizarre solution. Steve Hodel, a retired LAPD detective who was a private investigator, took up the case, reviewing the original evidence and records as well as those of a separate grand jury investigation into a series of murders of single women in LA at the time. The prime suspect had in fact been identified, but never indicted. Why? And who was he? In an account that partakes both of LA Confidential and Zodiac, for the corruption it exposes and the insight it offers into a serial killer’s mind, Hodel demonstrates that there was a massive police cover-up. Even more shocking, he proves that the murderer, a true-life Jekyll and Hyde who was a highly respected member of society by day and a psychopathic killer by night, was his own father. This edition of the book includes new findings and photographs added after the original publication, together with a new postscript by the author.

Download Black Dahlia Red Rose books, ******* A TIMES 'BOOK OF THE YEAR' ******* ***Shortlisted for the CWA Dagger for non-fiction*** 'A magnificent, meticulous and startling re-examination of a crime that haunts the world's imagination' Geoffrey Wansell, author of An Evil Love: The Life of Frederick West 'Eatwell writes brilliantly . . . [she] has finally offered [Elizabeth] Short a type of belated justice. Her book reads like a thriller' Sunday Times 'A compelling read, in both style and substance . . . A must-read for anyone with an interest in the Black Dahlia - or indeed any fan of the true-crime genre' Rod Reynolds, author of The Dark Inside 'Compulsively readable, impeccably researched and heart-rending at times . . . Superb' Sarah Lotz, author of The Three and The White Road ************* On 15th January 1947, the naked, dismembered body of a black-haired beauty, Elizabeth Short, was discovered lying next to a pavement in a Hollywood suburb. She was quickly nicknamed The Black Dahlia. The homicide inquiry that followed consumed Los Angeles for years and the authorities blew millions of dollars of resources on an investigation that threw up dozens of suspects. But it never was solved. Until now. In this ground-breaking book, Piu Eatwell reveals compelling forensic and eye witness evidence for the first time, which finally points to the identity of the murderer. The case was immortalised in James Ellroy's famous novel based on the case, in Kenneth Anger's Hollywood Babylon and Brian de Palma's movie The Black Dahlia. This is a dark tale of sex, manipulation, obsession, psychopathy and one of the biggest police cover ups in history.

Hard Boiled Hollywood

by Jon Lewis, Hard Boiled Hollywood Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Hard Boiled Hollywood books, The tragic and mysterious circumstances surrounding the deaths of Elizabeth Short, or the Black Dahlia, and Marilyn Monroe ripped open Hollywood's glitzy fa�ade, exposing the city's ugly underbelly of corruption, crime, and murder. These two spectacular dead bodies, one found dumped and posed in a vacant lot in January 1947, the other found dead in her home in August 1962, bookend this new history of Hollywood. Short and Monroe are just two of the many left for dead after the collapse of the studio system, Hollywood's awkward adolescence when the company town's many competing subcultures--celebrities, moguls, mobsters, gossip mongers, industry wannabes, and desperate transients--came into frequent contact and conflict. Hard-Boiled Hollywood focuses on the lives lost at the crossroads between a dreamed-of Los Angeles and the real thing after the Second World War, where reality was anything but glamorous."

A Genius For Murder A Play In Three Acts

by Steve Hodel, A Genius For Murder A Play In Three Acts Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download A Genius For Murder A Play In Three Acts books, FROM THE PUBLISHER A Genius for Murder: A Play in Three Acts is a dramatization of 1940s Hollywood Noir. The play is a Hollywood Confidential, based on real people and real events taken from the actual newspapers, secret police files, recorded transcripts and courtroom documents of that day. It centers on a five-year timeline (1945-1950) in the life of Dr. George Hill Hodel, then Head Venereal Disease Control Officer for the Los Angeles Health Department and a "prime suspect" in a series of LA Lone Woman Murders the most infamous being the 1947 torture-surgical-murder of twenty-two-year-old, Elizabeth "Black Dahlia" Short, Did George Hodel actually commit these sadistic murders? Or, because of his skill as a surgeon, was he just rounded up as "one of the usual suspects?" As a member of the seated jury, you will be asked to weigh the evidence, and then vote your mind at the close of Act III. George Hodel, an LA born native, was a sophisticate and bon vivant extraordinaire. Possessed of a high-genius IQ he was a member of Hollywood's inner-circle of the rich and famous. His personal friends were an eclectic group of actors, artists, and writers who make up the play's cast. We meet and party with George's beautiful wife, Dorero, a screenwriter, recently divorced from George's longtime friend, famed film-director John Huston. We are introduced to George's inner-circle of avant garde intimates such as the surreal photographer, Man Ray and his wife and muse, Juliet. We drink and philosophize with writer and fellow Dadaist, Henry Miller, along with George's confidant, the mysterious German Baron, Ernst von Harringa. In the 1940s, George Hodel was the A-List doctor to Hollywood's A-List stars as well as LA's downtown politicos and high-ranking officers on both the Los Angeles Police and Sheriff's Departments. As owner of the First Street VD Clinic, Dr. Hodel was the go-to-guy for "a girl with a problem" and was known and recognized inside the police department as a "High Jingo," one who is well connected, and a man not to be messed with. The play, as a historical drama, takes us back to relive and rediscover the noir-underbelly of Los Angeles, as a-City of Angles. Corrupt police and politics ruled the day. City Hall was surrounded by Machiavellian princes all with their long knives drawn. Nothing was as it appeared. Throughout it all, one highly intelligent and powerful man knew the city's secrets and "how everything fit together" and that knowledge made him extremely dangerous. It also made him UNTOUCHABLE. This Play in Three Acts is based on that time and that man. A man who unquestionably had-A GENIUS FOR MURDER. The play was written by Steve Hodel, the son of Dr. George Hill Hodel. Steve is a retired LAPD homicide detective and the New York Times bestselling author of Black Dahlia Avenger. (HarperCollins 2006-Skyhorse e-book 2012) His true-crime book became an international bestseller as well as being nominated for an Edgar Award by the Mystery Writers of America in the Best Fact category.
