Synopsis

The Black Dahlia is a roman noir on an epic scale: a classic period piece that provides a startling conclusion to America's most infamous unsolved murder mystery--the murder of the beautiful young woman known as The Black Dahlia.   The novel fuses the real-life murder of Elizabeth Short with the fictional story of two police officers investigating the crime. Ellroy was born in Los Angeles in 1948, the year after Short was found murdered, and Ellroy’s own mother was murdered when he was 10 years old - the killer never found.  Black Dahlia  was adapted into a film in 2006 starring Josh Hartnett, Scarlett Johansson, Aaron Eckhart, and Hillary Swank.

About Discover Books

Our company was launched based on the fundamental belief that used books have value and should never go to waste. Prior to our founding, many of our staff worked in the thrift industry where we saw millions of books being sent to landfills each year. With each discarded book, we thought of the imagination, magic, and knowledge lost forever to a garbage heap and we endeavored to find a better way.

We think books should achieve their greatest possible purpose: Whether purchased by another reader, donated to help a child acquire the lifelong skill of literacy, or recycled as a new product, it has a story to tell. We let stories live on.
