Publisher's Summary

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.

    "This narrator should not narrate"

    The content and Ann Rule's writing is fantastic at crafting this horrific story. The woman who read the book was awful. Her voice was difficult to listen to and she emphasized points in the story that didn't make sense to me.

    "Though compassionate....this book is overlong"

    I understand wanting to give the victims of this monster a voice but this book drones on and on about the inane when what matters to readers is a glimpse into the eyes of madness. I am also skeptical of Ms Rules "connection" to GRK.

    Story
    "For a book about the deadliest serial killer it was sure boring"

    I have never read an Ann Rule book before and I was excited to read this one, but it turned out to be a big disappointment. I enjoy true crime novels and love trying to understand the why of serial killer however there was very little about the killer and way too much on the unimportant and un interesting information about the way the investigation went wrong or was stalled. To make matters worse, the narrator was horrible with no passion or interest in her voice. Very slow and not worth it –
    My first Rule will be My last.

    "Ann Rule's usual high standard"

    Anyone who enjoys true crime and/or Ann Rule will enjoy this typically Ann Rule re-telling of a series of ghastly murders. The only difficulty for me was that there are so many young victims their lives and deaths tend to blurr, despite the fact that Ann Rule deals with each of them separately and with sensitivity and respect. So many sad lives, so many tragic endings, and one man who got away with it for so long. A gripping story well told and well read.

    Story
    "Tedious content, excellent narrator"

    I was intrigued by this subject and thought this book would be great. Unfortunately, I didn't even finish it -- the narrator is really excellent (one of the best I've ever heard), but the writing is too detailed and tedious. The first 20 chapters spend most of their time with biographies of each girl who was murdered; certainly I feel sorry for each girl and their murders were horrific, but i don't need to know what they were like in high school or other mundane details.

    Wish i could recommend this, but i can't.

    "Awful"
    Would you try another book from Ann Rule and/or Barbara Caruso?

    No


    Would you ever listen to anything by Ann Rule again?

    No


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Not her fault


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Green River, Running Red?

    80% of what was read


    Any additional comments?

    This book should have been titled "The Lives of the Green River Killers Victims" ...I couldn't finish listening to this book. I got half way through it and couldn't listen anymore! All this book talks about is the lives of the victims, hardly anything about Gary Ridgeway. i don't know if she was waiting until the end to actually talk about the killer himself, but needless to say the book is very boring for the first few hours.

    "Good book"

    This was a good book. I learned a lot about the victims and how difficult the case actually was. I feel for the task force.

    "Couldn't get past the first few chapters"

    Many editing misses, confusing location reference points and changing names for specific crime locations--generally disjointed, rushed into print, & couldn't even continue to listen... Ugh.

    "Disappointing"
    Would you try another book from Ann Rule and/or Barbara Caruso?

    I find the narration for this book irritating. After listening to a pro like Kevin Pierce, I am admittedly spoiled. This could potentially be a good story written by someone like Greg Olsen and narrated by Mr. Pierce.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Ann Rule? Why or why not?

    No, I'm not at all happy with her style.


    What didn’t you like about Barbara Caruso’s performance?

    Everything.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The story is potentially good.
