My Dark Places

My Dark Places
by James Ellroy [364.152 Ell]

In 1958, James Ellroy's mother, Jean, was murdered in Los Angeles. Her murderer was never found. James was only ten years old at the time, and soon he became obsessed with murdered women and crime. In 1994, Ellroy teams up with long time homicide detective Bill Stoner to reopen the case.
