About this item

The story of one of America's most notorious killers is revealed in this true-crime comic unlike any other!Throughout the 1980s, the highest priority of Seattle-area police was the apprehension of the Green River Killer, the man responsible for the murders of dozens of women. In 1990, with the body count numbering at least forty-eight, the case was put in the hands of a single detective, Tom Jensen. After twenty years, when the killer was finally captured with the help of DNA technology, Jensen spent 180 days interviewing Gary Leon Ridgway in an effort to learn his most closely held secrets--an epic confrontation with evil that proved as disturbing and surreal as can be imagined.Written by Jensen's own son, acclaimed entertainment writer Jeff Jensen, Green River Killer: A True Detective Story presents the ultimate insider's account of America's most prolific serial killer.Praise for a previous edition of Green River Killer:"The story Jeff Jensen has to tell about Tom Jensen's pursuit of the Green River Killer, with its artful shifts back and forth in time, operates on two levels: as a spellbinding true-crime story and as a son's deep, loving appreciation of his father's life, work, and code of honor. I finished this book feeling as though I'd read a relentless thriller and a moving memoir: two gifts in one." -Ken Tucker, Entertainment Weekly"Terrific. It's got the scariest opening sequence I've read in years, and the novel as a whole makes compelling stay-up-late reading. Great, creepy stuff."-Stephen King
