In the most extraordinary journey Ann Rule has ever undertaken, America's master of true crime has spent more than two decades researching the story of the Green River Killer, who murdered more than forty-nine young women.

For twenty-one years, the Green River 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 eventually emerged as the prime suspects among an unprecedented forty thousand scrutinized 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.

Green River, Running Red is a harrowing account of a modern monster, a killer who walked among us undetected. It is also the story of his quarryof who these young women were and who they might have become. A chilling look at the darkest side of human nature, this is the most important and most personal audiobook of Ann Rule's long career. Download and start listening now!

    Statesman Journal (Oregon)

  • “Rule once again validates her standing as one of the pre-eminent chroniclers of modern serial murder…Perhaps her greatest achievement is bringing Ridgeway's victims to life as distinct individuals, most of whom led lives of quiet desperation that brought them to prostitution and, eventually, to death at his hands.”

    " This was an extensive, fantastic (if one can use that word for such a topic since it is true-perhaps I should just say "well written") read. I love Ann Rule--she herself is a fascinating women with so many crazy experiences. The fact that she was INVOLVED and not just a random author covering a topic makes this more interesting--(same w/ her Stranger Beside Me I'm reading now about Ted Bundy). I love how she covered so much of the back stories of victims and personally took it upon herself to memorize all their faces and things about them so that they would be PEOPLE and not just VICTIMS. He was/is definitely an enigma, which makes the factual account of things so intriguing--he's such an evil, demented man. I'm sure his sway to becoming what he became had some gradualness to it...surely he was an innocent child with potential at one point...I wonder when exactly the key breaking points occurred... "

    " It's sickening what humans are capable of doing to each other and the green river killer represents depravity at its most sickening. Ann Rule is the queen of true crime. "
