Comprehensive, informative, chilly!
I've literally read dozens of true-crime books and this is one of the best written. Without going into how great it was, let me just tell you about something that had me thinking especially in view of what happened many years later when Ridgway was finally caught. At one point in the book, the author (almost as in passing) mentions someone the police suspect. His name is not mentioned (in keeping with police procedure not to mention current suspects by name) but his occupation is: a truck painter. This little piece of information itself takes up probably a sentence in length. He's never mentioned again. But it kept nagging and nagging away at me. I'm sure the author thought nothing of it. I'm sure he wasn't aware of the significance of this suspect. Then, at least a year later I read on the internet that Ridgway had been arrested as being the Green River killer. At which point, I only had one Question: what was his occupation? Could this have been the suspect that the authors so nonchalantly mentioned back when the book was written? And, guess what?, he was a truck painter!! And the rest is history.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
