THE GREEN RIVER KILLINGS WERE THE MOST HORRIFYING SERIAL MURDERS EVER COMMITTED. THE CASE WAS NEVER SOLVED . . . UNTIL NOW.
"[THIS] WORK OF FICTION READS EERILY LIKE A TRUE CASE STUDY of these infamous unsolved crimes. . . . Lockman is the kind of character who can haunt your waking dreams."
--The New York Times Book Review
"CHILLING SUSPENSE . . . In this novel, bestselling author Roderick Thorp takes on the true-life terrors of a maniacal serial killer known as the Green River Killer, who is suspected of killing at least fifty young women in the Seattle-Portland area during the '80s, and who has never been convicted . . . Breathtaking in its pacing, RIVER takes the reader into the minds of both a detective fighting personal demons and a human demon whose wanton disregard for human life is so despicable his actions and motivations make the reader cringe. Thorp has imagined a surprise ending to his roller-coaster thriller that is genuinely surprising."
--Boston Herald
"SHOCKING . . . GRIPPING . . . Thorp's account is so convincing, even in the justice finally meted out to the killer, that most readers will be able to flag the case 'Solved' in their minds."
--The San Diego Union-Tribune
"THE ASSURED HAND OF A MASTER CRAFTSMAN, and the bone-marrow-deep understanding of the human heart. If the author's name were not on the book, I would still recognize his fingerprints--there's only one Rod Thorp."
--Andrew Vachss
"THIS BOOK IS A BLOCKBUSTER!"
--Gerald Petievich
Author of To Live and Die in L.A.
