Overview

River: A Novel of the Green River Killings by Roderick Thorp

THE GREEN RIVER KILLINGS WERE THE MOST HORRIFYING SERIAL MURDERS EVER COMMITTED. THE CASE WAS NEVER SOLVED . . . UNTIL NOW.



"[THIS] WORK OF FICTION READS EERILY LIKE A TRUE CASE STUDY of these infamous unsolved crimes. . . . Lockman is the kind of character who can haunt your waking dreams."

—The New York Times Book Review



"CHILLING SUSPENSE . . . In this novel, bestselling author Roderick Thorp takes on the true-life terrors of a maniacal serial killer known as the Green River Killer, who is suspected of killing at least fifty young women in the Seattle-Portland area during the '80s, and who has never been convicted . . . Breathtaking in its pacing, RIVER takes the reader into the minds of both a detective fighting personal demons and a human demon whose wanton disregard for human life is so despicable his actions and motivations make the reader cringe. Thorp has imagined a surprise ending to his roller-coaster thriller that is genuinely surprising."

—Boston Herald



"SHOCKING . . . GRIPPING . . . Thorp's account is so convincing, even in the justice finally meted out to the killer, that most readers will be able to flag the case 'Solved' in their minds."

—The San Diego Union-Tribune



"THE ASSURED HAND OF A MASTER CRAFTSMAN, and the bone-marrow-deep understanding of the human heart. If the author's name were not on the book, I would still recognize his fingerprints—there's only one Rod Thorp."

—Andrew Vachss



"THIS BOOK IS A BLOCKBUSTER!"

—Gerald Petievich
