    Comprehensive and insightful

    The Search For The Green River Killer is an comprehensive look at the years long search for the identity of the Green River Killer. It is an interesting book for anyone interested in learning more about America's worst serial killer. One thing that must be noted is that the book was originally written in 1991, while Gary Ridgeway was not captured until 2001. As such, a prospective reader must understand that they are going to read a volume that sums up the search as it happened up until 1991, with its many suspects, even more numerous victims and the very complicated relationship between the police, politicians and the press. Someone going into this book expecting it to be about the capture of Gary Ridgeway might end up walking away disappointed (though chapters added in 2003 do go into his capture and personality), however it is a book perfect for people who want to know more about the long process that led up to his capture, the many struggles that were faced over the years and the rise and fall of the team dedicated to catching this killer. Personally, I would very much recommend this book to people who are already familiar with the Gary Ridgeway case from other sources and would like to have more insight into the early years of the investigation.

    Difficult. Long and boring in places.

    This is a difficult read. Like reading a report rather than a novel. However, if you are interested in serial killers this gives a great deal of information and insight into how police approach these tragedies. I can't really recommend it. I admit that I skipped over plenty of the material.
