For twenty-one years, Gary Ridgway carried out his self-described 'career' as a killing machine, ridding the world of women he considered evil. The world's most prolific serial killer's eerie ability to lure his victims to their deaths and hide their bodies made him far more dangerous than any infamous multiple murderer in the annals of crime. Happily married, Ridgway worked for the same company for thirty years, eventually emerging as the prime suspect among 40,000 scrutinized by the Green River Task Force. Still, there was no physical evidence linking him to the murders, until 2001 when King County Sheriff Dave Reichert utilized a new DNA process on a saliva sample he had saved since 1987 with stunning results. Ann Rule has followed the case since the first body was found in July 1982. She has compiled voluminous files and gained unparalleled access to all the key players - from Reichert, who has stated that 'there's only one writer who can do this story justice - and that's Ann Rule', to those close to Ridgway and his victims. "Green River, Running Red" is a harrowing look at a modern monster - a killer who walked among us, undetected.It is also the story of his quarry, who they were - and who they might have become. Two decades in the making, this is the most important and most personal book of Ann Rule's long career.

 Unbelievable . . . .

that this man was not caught for so long; he eluded police for over 20 years and killed - at the very least - 48 women.

This is a richly detailed account of the police investigation. Also, it delves into the life of Gary Leon Ridgway, The Green River Killer. This is, without a doubt, the best book on him out there.

 My opinion of this book and author.

My opinion of this book and Author is the book was good but there was too many pages on the history of the victims but only about two chapters on the killer himself and how he was caught,Ann Rule seems to be a bit of a fantasist and attention seeker ,and seemed to me not really to serve any purpose in the police enquiry other than get in the way.this is only my opinion but there should have been more about what he was doing to escape capture all those years he was committing those heineous crimes,also his confessions were only skimmed over,the only let down is as i said there was not enough detail about his capture and what the police got from him,his plea bargain also was only skimmed over and not really explained.i found i could not put the book down but felt a bit let down when i finished as there was not enough detail about him and his apprehension,

 A good read for all serial killer readers

I have to agree with a previous reviewer, there was a lot of time spent delving into the lives of the victims early on the book that slightly spoils the book. I suppose thats just my opinion and some might like to read and enjoy these bits, it does show how the lives of those left behind are affected.
Gary eventually confessed and gave the police a lot of information on how and why etc which does in my opinion make up for the slow start to the book. If any readers are thinking its a bit slow, stick with it, the book is eventually a good read for serial killer buffs.
It is a sad tale, loads of kids and family left behind just to feed someones strange sexual satisfaction. I suspect there are a lot of them out there but not been caught yet, a bit scary to think about.
Enjoy the book and leave a review to let others know if its worth buying or not.
I marked it as a 4 star as the second half of the book kept me up till late for a couple of nights. Its the first ann rule book i have read and would consider others after this one.
