    Centered around the death of 21 year old Elisa Lam, a Canadian student visiting Los Angeles who seemingly disappeared from the Cecil Hotel on January 31, 2013, Jake Anderson relives the utter fascination both he and the public at large had with the strange circumstances surrounding this missing persons investigation.I think many people who begin this book, like me, will have at least some idea how this case ends , in a sense W
