Blackstone Publishing is thrilled to announce the forthcoming release of KILLER TRIGGERS [Blackstone Publishing; March 9, 2021; hardcover, e-book, audiobook] by Joe Kenda, star of Investigation Discovery’s Homicide Hunter.
In his riveting new book, Joe Kenda offers his memories of homicide cases he investigated or oversaw and uncovers the most common triggers for homicide: fear, rage, revenge, money, lust, and, more rarely, sheer madness.
In each case, Joe Kenda examines the trigger that led to death. He chose this theme for the book because even though the why of a murder case may not be critical in an investigation, it can sometimes lead us to the killer.
And even if we solve a case without knowing the trigger, the why still intrigues us, disrupting our dreams and lingering in our minds, perhaps because each of us fears the demons that lie within our own psyche—the triggers waiting to be pulled.
A Note From the Publisher
"Sitting down to read Joe Kenda's Killer Triggers is like settling in to listen to a masterful storyteller sharing his own story."
-J. A. Jance, New York Times bestselling author
“One of the most successful crime fighters in history…he’s also one of the most quotable tough guys to ever put on a badge.”
“Legendary…For twenty years Lt. Joe Kenda served as a detective with the Colorado Springs Police Department. During that time he solved 356 of the 387 murder cases he investigated. This is a staggering accomplishment, one almost unheard of in modern American law enforcement.”
“A bona fide true-crime star.”
