Experts praise GONE AT MIDNIGHT

"The definitive book on Elisa Lam is finally here. Gone at Midnight is a descent into madness--clinical madness and the madness of armchair sleuths doing their thing. This book is both an investigation into one of the internet's most frustrating mysteries and a personal exploration of depression and suicidal ideation--and how we must rebel in order to survive. The supporting character of Gone at Midnight is the Cecil Hotel, which takes on a life of its own, tempting the author and luring him back in an attempt to drive him insane. Is it haunted? Or is it all in our minds? Jake Anderson continues the tradition of New Journalism and gonzo reporting by weaving a personal story of mental health and anguish with a confounding L.A. mystery."
--James Renner, author of True Crime Addict

"Sharply written with a journalistic nose for facts and detail, Jake Anderson's Gone at Midnight captures the essence of a breaking true crime story and what goes on behind the scenes as the search for a missing person turns deadly. The twists and turns are remarkably sketched by an up-and-coming author who has complete control over his narrative. Add a bit of paranormal into the mix and what we have is riveting . . . scary, compelling . . . and expertly told."
--M. William Phelps, New York Times bestselling author of Where Monsters Hide

"Outstanding...true crime buffs won't want to miss this gripping search for the truth."
--Publishers Weekly STARRED REVIEW
