The Black Dahlia
The Black Dahlia


On January 15, 1947, the tortured body of a beautiful young woman was found in a vacant lot in Hollywood. Elizabeth Short, the Black Dahlia, a young Hollywood hopeful, had been brutally murdered. Her murder sparked one of the greatest manhunts in California history.

In this fictionalized treatment of a real case, Bucky Bleichert and Lee Blanchard, both LA cops obsessed with the Black Dahlia, journey through the seamy underside of Hollywood to the core of the dead girl's twisted life.

"Passionate, violent, frustrating...imaginative and bizarre." (Los Angeles Times)

"Building like a symphony, this is a wonderful, complicated, but accessible tale of ambition, insanity, passion and deceit." (Publishers Weekly)
