Now, in this gripping novel, the bestselling authorMoreIt is Americas most notorious, unsolved, serial murder case: the Green River Killer slaughtered at least fifty women in the Seattle-Portland area during the 1980s and was never brought to justice.

Now, in this gripping novel, the bestselling author of The Detective and Diehard presents his own horrifying portrayal of the Green River killings. River unmasks the Green River Killer and reveals why he was never caught--a story no true crime account has ever been able to tell.Phil Boudreau is a veteran detective with the Seattle vice squad. Tough, smart, impatient, he appreciates beautiful women and genuinely cares for the throwaway kids on his beat. Boudreau knows from the first that the murderer is cunning and brilliant.

Then the details of one of the killings burn a name into Boudreaus mind: Garrett Richard Lockman.Sent to jail by Boudreau years before, Garrett Lockman is societys worst nightmare: a shrewd, manipulative career criminal driven by an unstoppable will and insatiable sexual needs. When Boudreau learns that Lockman had escaped from prison before the first killing, the detective conceives an obsession of his own: prove that Lockman is the perpetrator of the most sadistic crimes one human being can commit against another.But Boudreau is powerless to act--through Lockmans machinations, he, himself has become a suspect.

As Boudreau stalks Lockman for eight grueling years, he realizes to his horror, that the police department has become an accomplice in the unspeakable crimes. River reaches its shattering climax in an agonizing power struggle between psychopath and cop--a contest that Boudreau can win only by dispensing justice as cruel as Lockmans crimes.No other writer has probed the evil depths of a serial killers mind as unflinchingly as Rod Thorp does in River.

No other crime writer has rivaled Thorps mastery of the paralyzing labyrinth of the criminal justice system. River is a brilliant portrait of heinous criminality that starts with the reported facts and explodes into fiction of unsurpassed intensity. Relentless in its suspense, chilling in the dark truth it explores, River is an overwhelming journey into the nightmare of evil that surrounds us all.River is the perfect serial killer novel. Horrifying, dark, procedurally fascinating, unrelenting in its suspense.--Jonathan Kellerman
