I Am The Night tells the story of Fauna Hodel, a teenage girl who is given away at birth, and grows up outside of Reno, Nevada.

As Fauna begins to investigate the secrets of her past, she meets a ruined reporter, haunted by the case that undid him.
Together they follow a sinister trail that swirls ever closer to an infamous Los Angeles gynaecologist, Dr George Hodel, a man involved in some of Hollywood’s darkest debauchery, and possibly, its most infamous unsolved crime.
