DEAD MEN DO TELL TALES:
FALLEN ANGEL
THE TRAGIC TRUE STORY OF THE BLACK DAHLIA
BY TROY TAYLOR (2013)

Los Angeles. Home to Hollywood, sandy beaches, orange groves and movie studios. It’s been called the City of Angels. But there is one lost angel in black that has been haunting the city’s boulevards of broken dreams for decades. Her name is Elizabeth Short and in 1946, she came to Hollywood to make it big and to see her name up in lights. Instead, after her severed body was found in an empty lot, she was immortalized as the “Black Dahlia,” more famous in death than she ever was in life. Despite the efforts of hundreds of police officers and countless hours of investigation, her brutal murder was never solved.  

What really happened to the Black Dahlia? Was she murdered by a madman, as city officials wanted everyone to believe, or was she the unlucky pawn in a game between corrupt cops, mob bosses and the illicit vice rings that ruled the city? Her tangled trail of death took her into a labyrinth of nightclubs, casinos, brothels and call-girl operations that catered to the Los Angeles elite and she never made it out alive. In this compelling book, Troy Taylor traces the last days of Beth Short’s life and reveals the wild mix of theories and conspiracies that have emerged since her death in January 1947. Find out who he believes killed the Black Dahlia and what really happened in the aftermath of her murder. You’ll never look at this terrifying story in the same way again! $17.00
