“A very well written account about the serial killer. I actually read this one twice!”see full review » see other reviews »
“I read this book way back in the late 80s or early 90s when I was a teenager. Back then they did not know who the killer was...I'm sure that it has been updated since then. Still it was a good book...not sure if reading it now would give me a whole new prespective on the book because now knowing who the killer is.”Donna B wrote this review Wednesday, July 28, 2010.

“The author did a pretty good job with an enormous amount of information. They focused on the difficulties of investigating the then-unsolved case, and unfortunately, the incredibly long list of victims remained just that for the most part -- a list of names. Really makes you feel for the police trying to do all their normal work as well as solve a brutally difficult case like this.”Eileen M wrote this review Friday, July 3, 2009.

“Creepy! Disturbing & Sad. Non-fiction story of Gary Ridgeway, a sadistic truckdriver who admitted to killing more that 50 women, many prostitutes over the years. Very sick man. He was arrested in 2001.
The book is long, over 500 pages. The center of the book has several pictures,and he even looks like Evil.”

“on Thursday, December 15, 2005 I wrote about this book....
Well after a very long time of waiting, I finally got my hands on Ann Rule's Green River Running Red.
Then i still wasn't sure which book to read first so I decided to read them both together. Not my favourite way of reading but in this case, a must.
Not only was i reading those 2 books, but also another book on this subject, The Riverman, which is mostly about Ted Bundy but there are some chapters where Bundy is involved in discussing TGR Killer.
So actually I have been reading 3 books on The green river Killer.
Well this one I have finished this morning, and the only one to complete is Ann Rule's book.
I am really curious. It is shocking for me that they didn't check better when a girl disappeared in front of her boyfriend's eyes and he found the owner of the car's house, warned the police but when they guy (Gary Ridgeway) told them there was no girl there, they just left it there.
It is hard to swallow, if they had checked better so many girls maybe would have survived?
While i am writing this I still don't know how he got caught. I do know he was a big subject in the end of the nineties.
