CHASING THE DEVIL is the gripping firsthand account of Sheriff David Reichert's relentless pursuit of the Green River Killer--a 21-year odyssey full of near-misses and startling revelations.

For eight years, Sheriff David Reichert devoted his days and nights to capturing the Green River Killer. He was the first detective on the case in 1982, doggedly pursuing clues as the body count climbed to 49 and it became the most infamous unsolved case in the nation.

Frantically following all of his leads, Sheriff Reichert befriended the victims families, publicly challenged the killer, and risked his own safety--and the endurance and love of his family--before he found his madman. But Reichert's hunt didn't end when he finally cornered a truck painter named Gary Ridgway. It would be yet another 11 haunting years before forensic science could prove Ridgway's guilt beyond a shadow of a doubt. Told in vivid detail by the man who knows the whole story, this is a real life suspense story of unparalleled heroism.

From the Back Cover:

FOR TWENTY YEARS HE KILLED AND AVOIDED CAPTURE...
It began with the discovery of three women's bodies found near suburban Seattle's Green River in August, 1982. Soon more corpses and human remains would be found, some as far as Oregon. They were teenage runaways or other women whose anonymous lifestyles had made them easy, vulnerable targets--and they were all the victims of a faceless murderer whose rampage would span two decades and take as many as forty-nine lives. No other serial killer in the nation's history had killed so many people.

BUT ONE COP REFUSED TO QUIT...
For twenty long years, Sheriff David Reichert played a cat and mouse game with the Green River killer who managed to stay one step ahead of Reichert, the local authorities, and even the FBI. But Reichert had no doubt in his mind that he was going to find the Green River killer-- no matter how long it took...

UNTIL JUSTICE WAS SERVED...
That day came in 2001 when DNA evidence linked fifty-two-year-old truck painter Gary Ridgway to three of the murder victims. The long nightmare was finally over for Reichert and the families of the murder victims. With startling insider disclosures and the fascinating forensic details of the relentless manhunt itself--Chasing the Devil exposes the heart of true evil and reveals the dauntless efforts behind one man's quest to chase it...

"Front-and-center account...straightforward...ultimately, the epic turns into a nightmare of gnawing anxiety...as gruesome as guilty pleasures get for rabid crime readers."
--Kirkus Reviews
