Straightforward and well-made.

A graphic-novel account of Green River killer Gary Ridgway's decades-long murder career and his eventual capture by the King County sheriff's office. It's a look into the mind of a serial killer and the cops who hunted him.

The story jumps around in time but focuses mostly on the seven months of interrogation in which Ridgway tried to locate his many victims as part of his plea agreement. It's a long slog of incomplete information and weirdly polite interactions between the police and the killer.

There are some nice emotional and personal moments scattered throughout, like when the protagonist learns that his partner has Lou Gehrig's disease, or when he promises a missing girl's mother that he will always call before visiting so as not to scare her.

It's not dazzling or anything, but Green River Killer is a solid, well-told, interesting story.
