Journalist Billy Jensen has built his career on solving cold case murders, often using information found on social media and in other places the police don’t think to look. When detectives have no answers, they call Billy, the world’s first digital “consulting detective.”
Step inside the world of true crime as Billy solves the Halloween Mask Murder, finds a murder/fugitive hiding out in Mexico, and investigates the only other murder in New York City on 9/11.
Readers will also follow Billy closely as he helps finish Michelle McNamara’s #1 New York Times bestseller I’ll Be Gone In the Dark, after her sudden death.
Full of twists, turns, and rabbit holes, Chase Darkness with Me allows readers to ride shotgun with Billy as he uses groundbreaking techniques to identify the criminals behind seemingly unsolvable murders.
“An intense, fascinating read for true crime lovers and newbies!” —Patton Oswalt
"In Chase Darkness with Me, Billy Jensen has written a breakthrough crime narrative. More than looking back on killers of the past, Billy focuses on the monsters walking among us today, showing us how technology, teamwork, and an unwillingness to let evil win represents the future of criminal investigations. This unexpected and gripping book tells the fascinating story of a guy who was fed up with all the unsolved murders he was writing about and came up with a system to solve the crimes himself. True crime fans won’t be able to read it fast enough." —John Douglas, former chief of FBI’s Investigative Supportive Support Unit and #1 New York Times bestselling author of Mindhunter: Inside the FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit
