Los Angeles, January 15th 1947. The body of a young lady lies in the low cut grass of Leimert Park, a grim theatre later referred to as The Black Dahlia murder. Elizabeth Short was discovered sliced in two without a single drop of blood left in her body and a grim smile carved into the flesh of her face. A horrific murder in the golden age of Hollywood, where the scent of death vanished among cigar smoke and cheap perfume. Detective Jack Donahue hunts for a sadistic murderer alongside partner, Alma Callahan, in The Black Dahlia.
