Review: The Search for the Green River Killer

User Review  - Rob Foster - Goodreads

Not to seem too morbid about it, but this book was more interesting before the murderer was caught. He hardly lived up to the image of the elusive fiend portrayed here. In reality, he was just more "lucky" than he deserved to be, regarding evading capture. Read full review
