This month’s True Crime Book Club is online via Zoom! It takes place 4/22 at 7.30pm PSt and is open to anyone in the galaxy! This month’s book is a cracker – Gone At Midnight by Jake Anderson, and looks at the strange story of Elisa Lam, whose naked body was found in a water tank atop the Cecil Hotel in downtown LA a few years ago; you must remember the story – the video of her in the elevator? So many theories about this one, and now we can all discuss it! I’ll be hosting for the Last Bookstore, where you can buy the book and get the join up code: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/true-crime-tuesdays-with-james-t-bartlett-tickets-98541868381
Even if you don’t come to the club keep calm, don’t panic, wash your hands, cover your face, and perhaps buy Gourmet Ghosts – Los Angeles AND Gourmet Ghosts 2 so you can plan which bar or restaurant you’re going to visit when this is all over!
For now, my latest article about LA’s Natural History Museum museum taxidermist Tom Bovard for ALTA California magazine is worth a read.
The Journal interviews me about the books and getting a scare in Hollywood, and here’s a link to my LA Weekly article about Jack The Ripper and the Dead & Buried podcast I guested on in Melbourne, Australia, when I went to investigate further. Here too is a link to a piece I wrote on the infamous murder of the Black Dahlia.
