About the book

A captivating, eloquent and deeply original book, We All Go into the Dark is an absolute must-read for true-crime fans across the board.

Three women were brutally murdered between early 1968 and late 1969, each after a night dancing at Glasgows infamous Barrowland Ballroom. Their murders were linked and ascribed to the spectre of the well-dressed, scripture-quoting killer who had apparently stalked the citys dancehalls. The figure was never caught or identified.

But the intervening years spawned a legend that never quite lost its grip on the popular imagination of Glasgow. The killings provoked the countrys largest ever manhunt, as well as countless suspects, books, documentaries, earnest speculation, pub theorising and bouts of urban mythmaking.

In We All Go into the Dark, Francisco Garcia delves into how Bible John has morphed across generations, interrogates our collective obsession with solving historic crimes and questions why some killings are forgotten with indecent haste and why others are never permitted to be forgotten at all.
