    One thought on “The Conspiracy Files: The Black Dahlia”

    1. Interesting review of suspectsThis read was interesting because it looked at the all the known suspects in Elizabeth Short's murder and also the claims of some of the popular books on the subject, most of them I've read with the exception of a couple of the one's that claim their father did it or Orson Wells did it. I started reading Mr. Hodel's book but it seemed too unbelievable to me and I couldn't finish it. I realize Mr. Hodel is a great detective but when he started blaming his father for [...]

    2. For a short read this was full of detail. I was aware (as are most fans of true crime) of the Black Dahlia story and that the murderer has never been found of this horrific attack, but until I read this book and read about the full abuse suffered, I wasn't aware of just how horrific the attack really was. The book contains an overview of the criminal investigation and a list of the suspects at the end. Personally I don't think we will ever find out who was responsible for the murder, but as well [...]

    3. I found this book to be short, but researched and written well. It didn't seem biased, a cut-copy-paste job, disrespectful to the victim or her loved ones, or voyeuristic in tone. I also liked the look into the primary suspects that the author included.I would have liked a few photographs - not gory crime-scene ones or anything, just one or two from happier periods in Elizabeth's life, and maybe some of the suspects.
