Audio Book Summary

In this provocative and eye-opening classic of investigative journalism, the #1 New York Times bestselling author and “America’s best true-crime writer” (Kirkus Reviews), Ann Rule, explores the nearly twenty-year long search for America’s most prolific and horrifying serial killer.

In 1982, the body of Wendy Coffield is discovered floating near the sandy shore of Washington’s Green River. Authorities have no idea that this tragic and violent death is only the beginning of a string of murders that will rock and terrify the Seattle area for two decades.

With her signature riveting prose and in-depth research, Ann Rule takes us behind the scenes of the search for the Green River Killer, a terrifying specter who ritualistically killed young women and eluded authorities for years. From seeking the help of incarcerated serial killer Ted Bundy to Ann Rule’s horrifying realization that the killer she was writing about had attended her book signings, Green River, Running Red is the suspenseful and unforgettable “definitive narrative of the brutal and senseless crimes that haunted the Seattle area for decades” (Publishers Weekly).

    This book pulls you in immediately and keeps you engaged through to the end. I caught myself responding outloud to some of the details I was hearing. It covers the stories of the murderer and each victim to the point you feel you are almost there. I could not wait to get in my car to hear the next pages.

    Living in the pacific northwest has brought this story close to home. I remember the fragmented and often untrue articles in the newspaper. It was a pleasure to finally get the whole truth about a horrible monster. I have read several of Ann Rule's books and find them all great.
