All the Colors of the Dark

Chris Whitaker

From the New York Times bestselling author of We Begin at the End comes an epic novel about a man fixated on finding a missing woman―and the FBI agent on his tail, who might be even more obsessed than he is.

"A huge achievement." ―Alex Michaelides

"Amazing. Haunting. Unforgettable." ―Patricia Cornwall

"Taut, beguiling, and suspenseful."—Nita Prose 

"Impeccably crafted, deeply emotional, entirely shattering. I was captivated from page one."—Bonnie Garmus 

“Equal parts harrowing and triumphant, Chris Whitaker's novel is a haunting story of America, alternating between its twin strands of violence and love. I couldn’t put it down. An absolutely must-read novel.” –Gillian Flynn

1975 is a time of change in America. The Vietnam War is ending. Mohammed Ali is fighting Joe Frazier. And in the small town of Monta Clare, Missouri, girls are disappearing.

When the daughter of a wealthy family is targeted, the most unlikely hero emerges—Patch, a local boy with one eye, who saves the girl, and, in doing so, leaves heartache in his wake.

Patch and those who love him soon discover that the line between triumph and tragedy has never been finer. And that their search for answers will lead them to truths that could mean losing one another.

A soaring thriller and an epic love story that spans decades, Chris Whitaker has written a novel about what lurks in the shadows of obsession, and the blinding light of hope.
