Author: Detective Lt. Joe Kenda

Genre: True Crime, Autobiography

Summary: Detective Lt. Joe Kenda, star of Homicide Hunter, shares his deepest, darkest, and never before revealed case files from his 19 years as a homicide detective.

Are you horrified yet fascinated by abhorrent murders? Do you crave to know the gory details of these crimes, and do you seek comfort in the solving of the most gruesome? 

In I WILL FIND YOU, the star of Homicide Hunter: Lt. Joe Kenda shares his deepest, darkest, and never-before-revealed case files from his two decades as a homicide detective and reminds us that crimes like these are very real and can happen even in our own backyards. Gruesome, macabre, and complex cases.

Joe Kenda investigated 387 murder cases during his 23 years with the Colorado Springs Police Department and solved almost all of them. And he is ready to detail the cases that are too gruesome to air on television, cases that still haunt him, and the few cases where the killer got away.

These cases are horrifyingly real, and the detail is so mesmerizing you won’t be able to look away. The tales in I WILL FIND YOU will shock you like the best horror stories-divulging insights into the actions, motivations, and proclivities of nature’s most dangerous species. Don’t mind the blood.

Review: 

I am completely addicted to Joe Kenda’s show and I have no clue why. I blame my mother. She’s the reason why I’m addicted to so so many different things, almost all of them harmless. Like books.

But sometimes you read books all night to finish them, because they amuse you and horrify you in turn, just like this one.

Joe Kenda is great at bringing dry wit and wry humour to even the worst of situations, which I imagine has to do with the horrific nature of the job. He never skirts the issues, talking bluntly about the nature of the beast, the beast in this case being humans.

The writing in it is never boring, and instead remains inventive, and to the point. I appreciated the little looks into how a job such as his could’ve hurt his home life. Although it doesn’t go too in depth with any of his cases I appreciated what was shared.

This is a good read for any true crime fan.
