This hit all of my crime show watching fan buttons. It's an interesting story, made more fascinating by its basis in truth. ( )

I checked this book out from the library, as I love a murder mystery, but the graphic novel idea made me curious. Excellent portrayal of the mystery behind the Green River killer and the detective in charge of the case. ( )

This was a wonderful little book. I can understand Jensen's frustration. This was a very sick man that did something horrible. I could feel is emotion through the whole thing. ( )

4.5 stars, but I'm fine with rounding up.

I've been a fan of Jeff Jensen since I started reading his Entertainment Weekly reviews regularly about a decade ago. When I picked this up, I didn't realize he was the author until I started reading. His father was one of the law enforcement officer who brought in the infamous Green River Killer.

It's a dark subject that is (thankfully) handled with little exploitation. This reads like a love letter to Jensen's father, a decent man butting heads with evil in society. It's a surprisingly moving story. The only think I disliked was that some of Jensen's dialogue feels overly expository, but it only happens in a few places.

Not gonna lie, I teared up a bit at the end. ( )
