Definitely not salacious. The narrative is a bit stunted in the beginning as the author quite rightly wishes to give the victims a voice. An interesting look at how difficult the investigations into serial killers can be. Worth reading if interested in the subject.

True Crime novel about the grisly murders of young women(some prostitutes) in the Seattle area during the early 1980's. Ann Rule writes a chronological novel that takes into the live these young women and the method the killer uses to take advantage and kill them - both guesome and heartwrenching - as well as the methods used by the investigators (task force) to try and nab the suspect. Possibly over 70 women killed ; a real tragedy. Probably wouldn't read another one like this ( I saw a list that said it was a good thriller) so I decided to take a chance and read it - not for the squeamish.
