Editorial Reviews

Steve Hodel's 2003 Black Dahlia Avenger ranks as one of the strangest and most captivating true crime book of recent times. In this book, which has since published in multiple editions, the veteran LAPD homicide detective named his own late father as the notorious "Black Dahlia killer," the culprit in the grisly 1947 murder of 22-year-old Elizabeth Short. Hodel not only accused his father of the notorious crime that has spawned numerous books and movies; he named him as a plausible suspect in several other Los Angeles murders. In Most Evil, he provides additional information to bolster his case.
