Season 1, Episode 41: My Dark Places
Her name was Jean Ellroy, and she was brutally killed at the age of 43. She left behind a ten-year-old son, and a trail of mysteries. Best selling author of Black Dahlia, James Ellroy, is that son. The book “My Dark Places” is, he says, his attempt to burn down the distance between him and a mother he didn’t really know. I believe it’s really an attempt to understand himself.
