    I thought this was a good true crime book as told by local reporters who had lived with this case for years. Ridgway was a nut and I think they did a good job and explaining the investigation from day one and how this guy eluded capture for so many years.

    This book is totally scarey.Very well written..I have lived in gary ridgeways hunting grounds all my life..I frequent places mentioned in the book.I wonder why though they put the wrong street number on the picture of his parents house..he grew up on 174th not 175th..And there used to be a woods behind the house..that was cleared at some point and a fence put up closer to the house..The book doesnt mention anything about searching where the woods used to be..and there are 4 girls still missing..hhmmm...left me wondering.

    The first out of the gates (preceding Ann Rule's book and Smith and Guillen's updated edition of "Search for the Green River Killer") following Ridgway's confession and conviction. This is a tightly written book which explores Ridgway's youth and subsequent rise to the status of worst serial murderer in US history. It covers all the bases, Ridgway, his crimes, the victims and the policemen who doggedly pursued their suspect until DNA brought him down. I'd happily recommend this book to any true crime fan. It also has an altruistic motive, a portion of the proceeds from the sales of this book go to a YWCA charity to build shelters for young women down on their luck, the sort of women Ridgway preyed upon.

    I very much enjoyed reading this book.I chose to read this book before reading "GREEN RIVER RUNNING RED" by ANN RULE.I wanted to get as much understanding of what he was like before reading about the things he did.
