After a search of over twenty years, one of America's most elusive serial killers was finally apprehended. Now, read the true story of one man's attempt to get inside se mind of the Green River Killer

July 15, 1982: 3 woman's strangled body was filed, caught on the pilings of Washington state's Green River. Before long, the "Green River Killer" would be suspected in at least forty-nine more homicides, with no end in sight. Then the authorities received an unbelievable letter from the infamous serial killer Ted Bundy — then on Florida's death row — offering to help catch the Green River Killer. But he would only talk to one man: Robert Keppel, the former homicide detective who had helped track Bundy's cross-county killing spree.

Now these conversations are revealed, in which Bundy speculates about the motive and methods of the Green River Killer — and reveals his own twisted secrets as well. Now, as never before, we look into the face of evil...and into the heart of a killer.

This true account of Detective Robert Keppel, Ph.D.'s interviews with infamous serial killer Theodore Robert Bundy are disturbing, yet essential to ANYONE interested in delving into the mind of a killer. It is a page turner from the start. Dr. Keppel takes us through a thurough examination of the early murders that Bundy commited while adding great empathy for the victims. This is NOT, by any means, another book dedicated to the Bundy atrocites. Anyone who is unfamiliar with Ted Bundy's history might want to first read an account focusing only on his murders. For those who know about him, this book is a MUST. Keppel weaves in the Green River murders in a very discrete way--as to keep continuity. I have a very extensive true crime/serial murder library, and it wouldn't be complete without 'The Riverman'.

The Riverman was written by the detective that sought to catch Ted Bundy. Several years after Bundy had been imprisioned he visited with him to get "tips" on how to catch and identify the Green River Killer. In the process of interviewing Bundy and understanding how the mind of serial killer works, he also hoped to get a last minute confession on the extent of Bundy's crimes before his execution.

I would not reccomend this book, towards the end it started repeating from the beginning.

I read this years ago to round off all my other readings of Ted Bundy. This book had less insight into the inner workings of his mind than some other excellent books on the topic.
