Green River Killer: A True Detective Story (TPB)

“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

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.

  • From the screenwriter of Tomorrowland!
  • The Eisner Award–winning true-crime graphic novel now in paperback!

“An astounding graphic novel—this is not just a riveting, relentless crime story, but a crackling morality tale pitting the dark glamour of evil against the day-to-day hard work demanded in the upkeep of decency. It’s a chilling, unnerving story, with sharp bursts of humor and a strong, true, humane heart. Absolutely fantastic.”—Gillian Flynn, New York Times best-selling author of Dark Places and Sharp Objects
