#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER A BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR: Washington Post | Maureen Corrigan, NPR | Paste | Seattle Times | Entertainment Weekly | Esquire | Slate | Buzzfeed | Jezebel | Philadelphia Inquirer | Publishers Weekly | Kirkus Reviews | Library Journal | Bustle | Mother Jones | Real Simple | Crime Reads | Book Riot | Bookish | Amazon | Barnes and Noble |Hudson Booksellers New York Public Library | Chicago Public Library Winner of the Goodreads Choice Awards for Nonfiction | SCIBA Book Award Winner | Longlisted for the Carnegie Medal for Excellence The haunting true story of the elusive serial rapist turned murderer who terrorized California during the 70s and 80s, and of the gifted journalist who died tragically while investigating the case—which was solved in April 2018. Introduction by Gillian Flynn • Afterword by Patton Oswalt “A brilliant genre-buster.... Propulsive, can’t-stop-now reading.” —Stephen King For more than ten years, a mysterious and violent predator committed fifty sexual assaults in Northern California before moving south, where he perpetrated ten sadistic murders. Then he disappeared, eluding capture by multiple police forces and some of the best detectives in the area. Three decades later, Michelle McNamara, a true crime journalist who created the popular website TrueCrimeDiary.com, was determined to find the violent psychopath she called "the Golden State Killer." Michelle pored over police reports, interviewed victims, and embedded herself in the online communities that were as obsessed with the case as she was. I’ll Be Gone in the Dark—the masterpiece McNamara was writing at the time of her sudden death—offers an atmospheric snapshot of a moment in American history and a chilling account of a criminal mastermind and the wreckage he left behind. It is also a portrait of a woman’s obsession and her unflagging pursuit of the truth. Utterly original and compelling, it has been hailed as a modern true crime classic—one which fulfilled Michelle's dream: helping unmask the Golden State Killer.

The year is 1952, at the height of McCarthyism. In Boulder, the University of Colorado president is dismissing faculty and staff for "subversive" associations and opinions. In Hanover, New Mexico, the "Salt of the Earth" strike sees mine owners accusing the strikers of communist sympathies and of obstructing the war effort in Korea. Sympathetic University of Colorado students and faculty support the strikers, and some strikers, through the agency of their local, the Mine, Mill, and Smelter union, come to Boulder to protest the dismissals of faculty and staff. Meanwhile, ironically, the United States is accusing the Soviet Union and the Warsaw-Pact countries of antidemocratic behavior. Dark Matters looks at the political parallels through the eyes of Ben (in the present tense) and Marty (in memory), each pulled by family tradition, friendship, passion, and current events. The novel ends with a postscript in Prague, 1969, as the Dubcek government is suppressed by the Soviets and their allies. Sociologists say that similar groups and governments define themselves by exaggerating their differences; McCarthyism and Communism, for all the vitriol between them, had much in common, as this novel shows through two passionate love stories.
