The Black Dahlia Files: The Mob, the Mogul, and the Murder That Transfixed Los Angeles (2005) by Donald H. Wolfe is a wonderfully written book about the very sad true case of a young woman called Elizabeth Short’s death.

 

There is clearly much extensive research involved in the putting together of this book. It looks at the murder of a 22-year-old woman Elizabeth Short who was murdered brutally in 1947. Her body was cut up after her death which suggested that someone with medical experience or knowledge was involved in her death. Elizabeth was pregnant when she died and the baby also did not live. This book gives us information on Elizabeth’s backstory and tells us about many people she knew around the time she died. We also get information on who was suspected at the time and after and the numerous theories which have been put forward since her horrifying murder which has never been solved.

This book shows how Elizabeth had her good and bad points and was like us all leaving the terrible thought that it could be anyone something like this could happen to. She had all these hopes and dreams and a real zest for life and all of that was took away from her.

A very harrowing read. Many of the photographs which accompany this book are also harrowing. A very interesting read but a very sad read.
