The true crime story is well told, but even more interesting is the behind-the-scenes of law enforcement. Turf battles between jurisdictions, lack of resources in the sheriff's department, the love-hate relationship with the media in trying to solve this. Of all the true crime books on the Green River Killer, this is the best!
From the back cover:
For twenty long years, Sheriff David Reichert played a cat-and-mouse game with the Green River Killer, who managed to stay one step ahead of Reichert, the local authorities, and even the FBI. But Reichert had no doubt in his mind that he was going to find the Green River Killer-- no matter how long it took.
I read this after reading "Green River Running Red" by Ann Rule. It gives yet another point of view of this 20 year hunt for Gary Rigeway.
What a great read! Finally the true story of what went on behind the scenes of the search for the elusive Green River Killer. As Reichert was the detective on the case from the beginning, all the facts are presented as to how he persevered in his investigation despite his fellow colleagues who doubted his belief that Ridgway was the killer.
