Green River Killer: A True Detective Story” by Jeff Jensen and Jonathon Case
This book is actually a Graphic Novel. This was my first Graphic Novel I have read, and I enjoyed it IMMENSELY!
The author of this story happens to be the “original” police detective who spent decades of his career looking for this serial killer, The Green River Killer. This story is a ‘true story’ that took place over approximately two decades, if I recall correctly, from seeing it on television. It was also on TV News Reports.. This ‘story’, not this Graphic Novel, has even been made into a ‘Made for TV movie’, which I enjoyed very much. Since I had heard of this serial killer and then saw the movie based upon this case, it was the deciding factor for me to read this story.
What this detective,
, went through to find the Green River Killer is amazing. This case was in his blood. HE was going to solve it no matter what he had to do. When the case died down and went cold, this man continued to look for this serial killer. I would go so far as to say this detective became obsessed with this case. This case is the type that does get into your blood and you could easily become obsessed with finding the killer because this detective was such a caring man. He cared so much that even though the women this serial killer killed were Prostitutes, he didn’t care. These women were ‘people’. They were “real people”, despite their careers. That, is a dedicated Detective as many officers, so it might seem, may toss these cases aside. Not Jeff Jensen . It may take a decade or just a little longer, but he does figure this case out and gets the Green River Killer. Jeff Jensen
This was a neat Graphic Novel to read, again, as I said my first. Very different than what I am used to, but it was a fun read, as I knew how this story would turn out. I highly suggest anyone who has not tried out a Graphic Novel, to try at least one!
I received this book for “FREE” from Dark Horse Publishers, through NetGalley, through their Book Reviewer’s Program in exchange to read and write a review about this book. It is NOT required for my review I write to be either positive or negative, but, “of my own opinion.” I was NOT provided with “ANY” monies to accept this book, “
