Summary
"The story of one of America's most notorious serial killers and the true detective who cracked the case is revealed in this true-crime graphic novel unlike any other! New introduction by Brian Michael Bendis. Throughout the 1980s, the highest priority of Seattle-area police was the apprehension of the Green River Killer, the man responsible for the murders of dozens of women. In 1990, with the body count numbering at least forty-eight, the case was put in the hands of a single detective, Tom Jensen. After twenty years, when the killer was finally captured with the help of DNA technology, Jensen spent 180 days interviewing Gary Leon Ridgway in an effort to learn his most closely held secrets--an epic confrontation with evil that proved as disturbing and surreal as can be imagined. Written by Jensen's own son, acclaimed entertainment writer Jeff Jensen, Green River Killer: A True Detective Story presents the ultimate insider's account of America's most prolific serial killer"--, Provided by publisher"DETECTIVE TOM JENSEN spent twenty years preparing to ask a monster one question. In the summer of 2003, he got his chance. For 188 days, the detective charged with hunting the worst serial killer in US history--Seattle's Green River Killer, responsible for the slayings of more than forty-eight women and girls--not only got to interview Gary Leon Ridgway, but practically lived with him. It was an unprecedented opportunity to gain closure and answers for all who were touched by Ridgway's inexplicable, horrifying evil--and on the morning of June 17, 2003, Jensen got to ask the question that haunted him most. Informed by interviews and unique personal insight, Tom Jensen's son, journalist Jeff Jensen, brings to dramatic life his father's quest to find the Green River Killer. Artist Jonathan Case (The New Deal) supplies moody artwork to match Jensen's chilling, emotional tale in a true-crime story unlike any other"--, Provided by publisher
