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.

I Will Find You by Detective Lt. Joe Kenda is a fascinating memoir from the star of Investigation Discovery’s Homicide Hunter. In this book, Lt. Kenda delves deeper into the cases portrayed on his show—and shares details too real for TV. I Will Find You is a must-read for fans of Homicide Hunter.

Lt. Kenda served 23 years on the Colorado Springs Police Department—19 of those as a homicide detective. He held a case solution rate of 92 percent. Through the show and book, it’s obvious how much Lt. Kenda cares about each and every victim—as well as their families—and how he stopped at nothing to bring their killers to justice.

The book revisits familiar territory featured on the show, but digs deeper and brings added perspective not shown on TV. Additionally, Lt. Kenda shares moments from his personal life—including stories about his steadfast wife and children—and gives a glimpse into life after retirement from the police force.

Thanks to his show, Lt. Kenda is now widely known for his sharp wit, acute senses, and commitment to justice. I Will Find You reinforces that portrait and provides the reader with extra clarity into the keen mind of the Homicide Hunter. If you can, get your hands on the audio version, which is read by the author. Highly recommended.

Rating: 5 stars
