"In The Color of Night, Max Geier weaves a fascinating and intricate tale of race, class, labor, and murder in the Pacific Northwest during World War II. Geier tells a compelling story that transports readers from rural Oregon to Portland to Los Angeles during the tense and highly charged wartime atmosphere. [I]t makes a real contribution to our understanding of race and labor in the wartime Pacific Northwest. Geier's book is an important and compelling exploration of race, class, and privilege in the wartime Northwest. Historians of race, labor, and the Pacific Northwest will find this book useful and stimulating." -- Robert Bauman, Oregon Historical Quarterly
