Black Dahlia expert Larry Harnisch has been blogging the errors he finds as he reads through Donald H. Wolfe's new book The Black Dahlia Files: The Mob, the Mogul and the Murder That Transfixed Los Angeles. Today he makes the allegation that Wolfe actually forged one of the documents purported to be from law enforcement files—and Harnisch shows how he thinks it was done. Harnisch then sent off an email to Wolfe about it:

Hi Don old pal,
Long time no see....
Say, the "D" memorandum on Page 198 of your book appears to be a fake that was pasted together from two other reports. Would you care to defend yourself?
Have a great day,
Harnisch previously objected when passages from his website and a piece he wrote in the Los Angeles Times turned up uncredited in Wolfe's book.
