September #5 - CHASING THE DEVIL

Title: Chasing the devil: My twenty-year quest to capture the Green River Killer

Author: Sheriff David Reichert

Publisher: Little, Brown and Co.

Copyright: 2004

ISBN: 0-316-15632-9

Series or stand-alone: True Crime

Setting: King County, Seattle and Tacoma, Washington

1st Sentence:

The River
The Green River's source is one mile high in the Snoqualmie National Forest and just south of a spot on the map called Stampede Pass.


The non-fiction account written by the man who was lead detective and later became sheriff, of the Green River Killer taskforce. Dave Reichert was on the case from when he received the first call about bodies on August 15, 1982 until a conviction was brought on November 5, 2003. This book is a very compelling albeit sad account of the Green River killings but a fine story of sticktoitiveness.
