Who Are You - The Who

Green River Killer:
A True Detective Story

Author: Jeff Jensen
Illustrator: Jonathan Case
Pages: 234
ARC Acquired from: Dark Horse via NetGalley

Brief Summary:
Detective Tom Jensen has been working the Green River case since early in his career, for almost twenty years. Finally, it seems they may have caught the man who killed 40+ prostitutes in the Seattle area. Unfortunately, this man, Gary, seems unable to recall any details to prove that his confession is true. Have they caught the serial killer or is he still out there?

Jeff Jensen, the author of this graphic novel, is the son of the detective. He wrote the story as a means of honoring and understanding his father's quest to catch this murderer. The story is, in some ways, like reading an episode of CSI, or perhaps Cold Case. However, those shows generally add really dramatic scenes for, well, dramatic effect. Except for the prologue, however, the scenes in this graphic novel are really understated, more thought provoking and mental than filled with action. The artwork works perfectly with the overall tone of the story.

Green River Killer made for an interesting read, but I, rather like Tom Jensen, am not completely satisfied with the resolution of the murder investigation. There are questions left unanswered that I would be really curious to discover the answers to. Of course, that's life.

"Well, who are you? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
I really wanna know (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)

Tell me, who are you? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)

'Cause I really wanna know (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)"
