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 49 young women.
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 quarry - of 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.

"Perhaps Rule's finest work." (Statesman Journal)
Ann Rule succeeds again with Green River, Running Red. This story will keep you captivated from start to finish. I was saddened to learn of Ann's passing right after I purchased this audio book. Thank you Ann, for the years of criminal knowledge you shared, about so many disturbing cases of some of the serial killers of our country. Your knowledge and writing expertise will define you forever.
Very interesting and well written. Yet another example of how many signs were there such as animal abuse and early violence.... Witnesses who were not believed-- We could stop these serial killers early if we just open our eyes. The research and detail here is helpful in understanding the full story.
Not sure why the book seemed a little flat. Could be all the murders seemed the same after the first few. Perhaps I was expecting a little more drama, or maybe this just isn't my style of book. Read it because friends absolutely loved the book.
I liked this book every bit as much as The Stranger Beside me. Ann Rule really gives you a since of being part of the story.
I don't know if it was because his reign of terror was so long or that Ann Rules writing style changed so much but after chapter 25/30 it became tedious to listen to. It's a shame because those victims need to be remembered and honored like they were in her first true crime piece about Ted Bundy. This story missed the mark.
This was my first time discover Ms. Ann Rule. I cannot wait to read the rest of her books. I was mostly appreciate and enjoy reading about the victims' background. The performance of this book was also perfect in every way.
Slow, confusing, detailed
Sequence the events, leave out the specific locations of murders, if you were not familiar with the areas in Seattle or Portland you couldn't tie it all together.
Everything, she was excellent.
Impossible to believe Serial Killer
20 years is a long time to cover a story and then make it into a book. It jumped from the present to past, one killer vs. another and I found it hard to follow without going back and re-reading a chapter.
I don't know, the story was so shocking, the killer was shocking. Nightmares!
That the killer could have been caught earlier.
Ann Rule - perfect, she conveyed Ann's professionalism and her shock..
That even his recent wife did not know that anything was wrong. I feel sorry for her.
The women that were killed thought they would recognize a killer, they didn't.
I never read the print version of this book so I have nothing to go by.
This book had many characters in it, none were the exact focus of the book since it was a true crime book and not a fictionalized version with a hero protagonist.
I liked that the narrator read with a sense that she was truly performing and not just reading to get through it.
Green River Killer...and detailed biographies of EVERY PERSON he killed.
Ann Rule is a good author, but tends to sympathize SO MUCH with the victims that she spends nearly half the book on their biographies. While it's sad that these women were killed, I bought a book about the Green River Killer, not Several Women Who No One Ever Heard Of.
