When I first read another book years ago about the Green River Killer and got to the end only to find that he had not been caught, I was stunned so I remember very well my reaction when Gary Ridgway was finally caught in 2001-again stunned. I have to say that while I do understand the frustration of the families because this guy could not be caught, I also have to say that I can understand the limitations of investigative tools that law enforcement had back in the 80's and early 90's.

Very interesting to read the background story of the search for the Green River killer. It restores my faith in humanity that Dave Reichert and so many others in law enforcement never quit looking for the killer of these young, vulnerable, lost girls that society so often brushes aside. They were human beings, daughters, sisters, and sometimes mothers. They deserved to live and grow up like everyone else. I'd just like to thank those officers for never forgetting them. I found Reichert' s retelling of the story to be frank and honest-- a warts and all story of a long, frustrating effort to track down Gary Ridgeway. Perseverance paid off in the end. A good example of why one should never give up

I am surprised that I had never heard about the Green River Killer until I was older but then again we are talking about something that happened beginning 30 years ago this year, and we didn't have the internet like we do today. When I first read another book years ago about the Green River Killer and got to the end only to find that he had not been caught, I was stunned so I remember very well my reaction when Gary Ridgway was finally caught in 2001--again stunned. I have to say that while I do understand the frustration of the families because this guy could not be caught, I also have to say that I can understand the limitations of investigative tools that law enforcement had back in the 80's and early 90's. DNA technology was not available in the 80's and it was in its infancy in the early 90's so without fingerprints or living witnesses, there really just wasn't much they could do. Although Ridgway was not an intelligent man, he knew the evidence that could be used at the time to tie him to the murders so he made sure that he destroyed that evidence. Luckily, he wasn't smart enough to envision the technology of the future that would eventually lead to his arrest. I was intrigued by this book because I am the same age as some of the victims were so when dates were mentioned, I could remember where I was in my own life and what I was doing on many of the dates. Hindsight being 20/20, it is easy to see now, as the book also says, why it took so long to catch Ridgway. He was very discreet in how he picked up women. He would pull over and wait for them to come to him. And even Ted Bundy hit the nail on the head when he told investigators that when you get too much into the profile, you lose something. Ridgway did not fit the FBI's profile. He looked harmless to these women and when necessary, he played the doting father card with his would-be victims. I have no doubt from reading this book that had it not been for advances in DNA technology, he may have never been caught. I think the book is well-written and I am glad that pseudonyms were not used (in the movie based on this book, they are for some of the victims/suspects). I recommend this book if you are a true-crime reader.

As he was one of the lead investigators, he witnessed alot everything so he is very well accurate about what he wrote and he knew precisely about everything, I live near the green river killer and knew exactly everywhere he was talking about and was shocked to find out his home was not too far from mine, his and another favorite book of mine by Anne rule (Green river running red) really made me sit on the couch for hours and read.

This book was surprisingly easy to read. I say surprisingly because it was written by a law enforcement agent so I didn't expect it to have such a human touch to it. Sure, the author goes into the police side of things, but you see how deeply this tragedy affected the police as well as the public.

The book was very informative on how crime fighting was in the 80's and how a serial killer could elude capture for so many years. As a true crime fan I'd recommend this book.

I read this for a course I was taking. It is a great read and also very instructional for investigators. They were indeed chasing a devil. They never gave up.

Sgt. Reichert did a great job of telling the police side of the story of finally identifying and capturing this sociopath. I am an investigator of elder abuse for my local county's Older Adult Protective Services dept and fully understand the trials and tribulations of identifying and capturing perpetrators, the long (and lonely) hours spent obtaining evidence and then analyzing the evidence collected. I felt his pain with respect to how long it took to finally find this man. Would definately recommend reading this it you want some insight into how long it sometimes takes to identify and finally capture criminals.

A very thorough and honest look at the reality of finding the most elusive of killers.
Reason for my five star rating is because Sheriff Reichert and Detective Brooks worked so hard and never stopped until Gary Ridgeway was caught and locked up. The dedication of all those involved in catching Ridgeway shows how truly hard detectives,cops or anyone involved in law enforcement had to work to gain rock solid evidence to arrest and bring to trial the right suspect minus all the DNA test that are available today!! God Bless all those who worked tirelessly and didn't stop until Gary was caught!!! I know many young women were lost, but how many were saved due to the work of Sheriff Reichert,Detective Brooks and so on.
