Hardback. The author spent more than two decades researching the story of the Green River Killer, who murdered more than 49 young women. The quest to discover the most prolific serial killer in American history has been an intimate part of the author'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 21yrs 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. A few men - including a law student, a truck painter, and a taxi-driver - eventually emerged as the prime suspects among an unprecedented 40,000 scrutinised 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. This 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. Featuring Gary Ridgway - the Green River Killer. Profusely Illus. + Afterword. 436pp. lge. 8vo. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. F. in F. dw.
