A Season of Darkness by Doug Jones and Phyllis Gobbell:
On a spring-like February afternoon in 1975, nine-year-old Marcia Trimble went across the street to deliver Girl Scout cookes. She never returned. Her disappearance prompted a massive search, unlike anything Nashville had ever known. The discovery of her body on Easter sparked a murder investigation that would take the police on a trial of twists, turns, and frustrating dead ends for more than three decades.
A Season of Darkness is the Marcia Trimble story. Many Nashvillians remember the night she disappeared and the day her body was found. I remember. We hope the book will illuminate some of the mysteries surrounding the crime and show how one little girl profoundly affected the whole city of Nashville.
