This review is for the Kindle edition. I could barely get through this travesty of a book. It allegedly tells the true story of Fauna Hodel, granddaughter of the infamous Dr George Hodel who was a suspect in the #BlackDahlia case. The book is the “inspiration” for the TV show “I Am the Night.” Dr George Hodel barely comes into the narrative at all until over two thirds of the way in.

The book is told by Fauna in the third person. She spends years looking for her birth family and then, when she finds them, proceeds to ignore them completely for years until she decides she’s obsessed with them (and their oft-mentioned wealth) after all.

The book is an absolutely shameless money grab, and the TV series is definitely not recognizable at all in its pages. As for the Kindle edition specifically? Barely edited, dozens and dozens of mistakes and typos throughout (enough to seriously tick me off). Things like “passed” instead of “past” (every single time throughout), “could/would/should of” instead of “could’ve etc), bizarre capitalization errors, etc.

Don’t waste your time. If you’re interested in a sensationalist take on the whole thing, watch the really good (but almost completely fictional) TV series instead.
