Review: Green River, Running Red

Title: Green River, Running Red

Author: Ann Rule

Publisher: Pocket Books

Format: Paperback, 665 pages


In her most personal and provocative book to date, the #1 bestselling master of true crime presents “her long-awaited definitive narrative of the brutal and senseless crimes that haunted the Seattle area for decades” (Publishers Weekly). This is the extraordinary true story of the most prolific serial killer the nation had ever seen — a case involving more than forty-nine female victims, two decades of intense investigative work…and one unrelenting killer who not only attended Ann Rule’s book signings but lived less than a mile away from her home.

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Review: I feel like I’ve talked about this book a lot already but it’s really nice to have finally finished it.

Overall I really enjoyed this book. It feel’s weird to say that about a true crime book but Ann Rule did a wonderful job covering the hunt for the Green River Killer and all of the facets that entailed.

She also did a great job honoring the victims and telling their stories. So often it feels like true crime focuses on the criminal but Rule spends most of her time focusing on the victims, on their lives, their hopes and dreams, and the people they were taken from.

I’d definitely recommend this book to anyone interested in true crime. It’s well written, and well researched.
