"A few men - including a law student, a truck painter, and a taxi driver - eventually emerged as the prime suspects among an unprecedented forty thousand scrutinized by the Green River Task Force. Still, there was no physical evidence linking any of them to the murders until 2001, when investigators used a new DNA process on a saliva sample they had preserved since 1987, with stunning results." "When finally apprehended and convicted, the killer made a detailed confession - of his twisted sexual obsessions - that will shock even the most jaded reader. Green River, Running Red is a harrowing account of a modern monster, a killer who walked among us undetected. It is also the story of his quarry - of who these young women were and who they might have become."--BOOK JACKET.
"Ann Rule has spent more than two decades researching the story of the Green River Killer, who murdered more than forty-nine young women. The quest to discover the most prolific serial killer in American history has been an intimate part of Rule's life, with some of the corpses found only a mile or so from where she lived and raised her own daughters. She did not know the killer, but he apparently knew her and attended many of her book signings." "For twenty-one years, the killer carried out his self-described "career" as a killing machine, ridding the world of women he considered evil. His 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.".

Definitely not salacious. The narrative is a bit stunted in the beginning as the author quite rightly wishes to give the victims a voice. An interesting look at how difficult the investigations into serial killers can be. Worth reading if interested in the subject.

True Crime novel about the grisly murders of young women(some prostitutes) in the Seattle area during the early 1980's. Ann Rule writes a chronological novel that takes into the live these young women and the method the killer uses to take advantage and kill them - both guesome and heartwrenching - as well as the methods used by the investigators (task force) to try and nab the suspect. Possibly over 70 women killed ; a real tragedy. Probably wouldn't read another one like this ( I saw a list that said it was a good thriller) so I decided to take a chance and read it - not for the squeamish.
