Really poorly written, repetitious and several times at odds with details reported on documentaries. Narrator may be doing his best with such lacklustre material, but he doesn't improve matters.

For eight years, Sheriff David Reichert devoted days and nights to capturing the Green River Killer - the most notorious serial killer in American history. He was the first detective on the case in 1982 and doggedly pursued it as the body count climbed to 49 and it became the most infamous unsolved case in the nation. Frantically following all leads, even as more bodies surfaced near the river outside Seattle, Sheriff Reichert befriended the victims' families, publicly challenged the killer, and risked his own safety - and the endurance and love of his family - before he found his madman.

Conveys the frustration and crushing sense of the early days of the investigation, with much detail not covered in other works on this subject.
