My Review:

If you have seen the hit TV show Homicide Hunter, this is a must read. If you have never seen the show but are a fan of true crime detective stories, this book is for you. I Will Find You is more than a recap of the show, it is more like a biography of a true American hero, Detective Lt. Joe Kenda. You get to follow along from his humble beginnings through his life as a police officer then as a homicide detective to his reaching of his breaking point and his life after retiring from the Colorado Springs Police.

Not for the faint of heart, this book contains graphic scenes of real-life crimes and the graphic language that realistically accompanied the officers who worked these cases.

A fulfilling book that allows you to pay a small bit of homage to a truly great man who was and is a hero. He deserves to be upon the pantheon of other great heroes who gave of themselves to help others.

My Rating: 5+ stars
