Written in a compelling, narrative style, Serial Killers: Issues Explored Through the Green River Murders is designed for an academic setting and explores the controversies that often permeate serial killer cases or massive murder investigations. Created by a New York Times best-selling author and educator, the book uses a collection of essays to examine the Green River Murders. The goal is to help readers move away from the quantitative and the sensational to reveal vital issues that surface during long running investigations such as maintaining justice, victims' rights, interrogation techniques, media coverage of crime, and grief. Its content captures the personal perspectives of those involved and its interdisciplinary approach offers application to many courses throughout the social and behavioral sciences.7 When Ridgway left the Navy, he obtained a job painting trucks at Kenworth Trucks, south of Seattle in King County and ... misreading paint codes at Ken- worth in the early 1980s when his rage against women overcame him, and he took toanbsp;...
