“Terrific. It’s got the scariest opening sequence I’ve read in years, and the novel as a whole makes compelling stay-up-late reading. Great, creepy stuff.” – Stephen King

Throughout the 1980s, the highest priority of Seattle-area police was the apprehension of the Green River Killer, the man responsible for the murders of dozens of women. In 1990, with the body count numbering at least forty-eight, the case was put in the hands of a single detective, Tom Jensen.

After twenty years, when the killer was finally captured with the help of DNA technology, Jensen spent 180 days interviewing Gary Leon Ridgway in an effort to learn his most closely held secrets – an epic confrontation with evil that proved as disturbing and surreal as can be imagined.

• From the screenwriter of
Tomorrowland!

“An astounding graphic novel – this is not just a riveting, relentless crime story, but a crackling morality tale pitting the dark glamour of evil against the day-to-day hard work demanded in the upkeep of decency. It’s a chilling, unnerving story, with sharp bursts of humor and a strong, true, humane heart. Absolutely fantastic.” – Gillian Flynn, New York Times best-selling author of
Gone Girl and Dark Places

Bloody Disgusting

•Horror pop culture site

“As the protagonist pushes the killer to confess his crimes, to explain his motives, to reveal some way of understanding the atrocities, the reader is drawn into this brilliantly written and illustrated black and white graphic novel. Jensen's superb dialogue and Jonathan Case's artwork combine to implant the story, as well as the same question that obsesses the protagonist, into the head of the reader.”

Comics Bulletin

•Comic book website

“Green River Killer: A True Detective Story is, simply put, one of the most excellent comics I have read for years. It works on every level -- as a true-crime narrative, as a personal memoir, as a story. Or, I should say, as a true-detective story, not a true-crime narrative. Because Green River Killer is the story of the detective more than the story of the killer.” – Zack Davisson
