A Timeline of the Investigation

Go Behind the Scenes of Evil Has a Name

''We were dealing with an intelligent offender who was doing everything he could during the course of his attacks to prevent himself from being caught,'' explains criminologist Paul Holes. ''DNA laws were changed in California just to try to solve this case.''

Description

The Golden State Killer. The East Area Rapist. The Original Night Stalker. The Visalia Ransacker.

The monster who preyed on Californians from 1975 to 1986 was known by many aliases. And while numerous police sketches tried to capture his often-masked visage, the Golden State Killer spent more than 40 years not only faceless, but nameless.

For his victims, for their families and for the investigators tasked with finding him, the senselessness and brutality of the Golden State Killer's acts were matched only by the powerlessness they felt at failing to uncover his identity. To be sure, the chances of obtaining closure – or any form of justice – after so many years were slim to none, at best.

Then, on April 24, 2018, authorities arrested 72-year-old Joseph James DeAngelo at his home in Citrus Heights, Calif., based on DNA evidence linked to the crimes. Amazingly, it seemed, evil finally had a name.

Delivering all-new details about the investigation and a stunning final act to the events of Michelle McNamara's haunting best seller, I'll Be Gone in the Dark, this is the true story of how the suspected Golden State Killer was captured, as told, first-hand, by those closest to the case:

Paul Holes — the forensic criminologist and retired Costa County detective who spent 20 years trying to crack the Golden State Killer case, and finally did.

Steven Kramer — the FBI lawyer who pioneered the use of a public DNA database to unmask a killer, creating controversy in the process.

Jim Clemente (Host) — a retired FBI profiler and former New York City prosecutor who has investigated some of the highest profile criminal cases in U.S. history, including The Unabomber.

Dark!

Very well written and structured. For someone such as myself, who knew nothing about the GSK prior to this, it's incredibly thorough and informative. I also love love love that it is indeed read by the actual people involved. I sincerely hope there are more productions like this to come!

Fascinating story

This will be a hard act to follow for several reasons. Not only is this an incredible story with a remarkable outcome, the production and narration are top notch! I was hooked from episode one. Well done.

Good documentary

Very interesting story and many different people are interviewed. The documentary does fall off at the end as there is very little information known about the actual person that completed these attacks.

Couldn’t wait for the next episode!

Honestly this audible original is the best audio book I have ever heard. It was super thrilling with a detailed timeline of the cases, stories from survivors, and the most important - the story on how he got caught from the detective who caught him. For someone who can’t pay attention very well this kept me in for every second of it.
Absolutely loved it!!!!

So good!

I love true crime and often find podcasts leave me wanting more.
Evil Has a Name gave the perspective of victims and the men and women involved in solving the crime which I loved.
Definitely a good listen!

Quite Good but Nothing Special

For a free offering to members, this production is excellent. It sounds almost as if produced as for television...quick cuts in quotes from police, victims,etc...music in the background. Where it suffers is in the lack of visual stimuli. Obviously the format (audio only), limits what they can do, but visuals and animatics would help lots in describing, say, what the guy's house looked like or how the the whole Genealogical Investigation process works (how trees are constructed, how the STR profiles are made, etc). "Seeing" how that stuff works would have helped.
A worthy effort, and something very different. Well done. Still, it sounded like something you would see on 'Investigation Discovery' if it were on the TV, turned up in the other room.

This book had me hooked from the start

There is love stories, and horror stories. They were presented perfectly, with a balance. It was all I could think about for a couple days.

Fascinating

If you can get through the disturbing content and theme of this book, you will find it fascinating and intriguing. It highlights early inadequacies in the police investigation compared to what would happen today. A fascinating true story told without it being sensationalized. Thoroughly recommend
