Raves and Tomatoes
Check out what others have to say about this book below:
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “If you like “Homicide Hunter”, you will love “I Will Find You”. Not only action-packed, but also insightful. Joe Kenda introduces the reader to the inside of hunting criminals and some of the personal feelings of the police detective who has just about seen it all. I felt like I was there, watching over his shoulder, listening to his inner thoughts.” Janet – review snippet from https://www.booksamillion.com/
⭐⭐⭐⭐ “Kenda is that rare person with whom one can connect without ever meeting. The book is as excellent as the show, and his confidence, humility and no-nonsense manner shine through”. Anonymous – review snippet form https://www.barnesandnoble.com/
⭐⭐⭐⭐ “Kenda makes a point of clarifying the reality of police work versus what we see on TV and read in fiction. He addresses the fact that women on the job won’t ever be wearing 4-inch heels, designer clothes with the buttons undone, and perfectly coiffed hair. This is one of my pet-peeves, with all female detectives portrayed as if they’re Victoria’s Secret models. He also talks about the reality of forensic evidence, and shares some interesting details about fingerprint evidence of which I was unaware.” Darcia – review snippet from http://www.librarything.com/
⭐⭐⭐⭐ “I also feel like the book misses the mark in capturing Joe Kenda’s voice. There are moments of brilliance, and moments when I can picture Kenda on camera telling these stories, and almost hear his voice, but those are few and far between. Mostly, I was bored and looking forward to the end.” Rachel – review snippet from https://www.goodreads.com/
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “Very informative book and Mr. Kenda lets us in on the downside of solving all those homicides, namely, severe PTSD and ongoing nightmares. That said, the book offers quite a bit of his somewhat skewed world view. I prefer the show but the book gives some good insight to the man behind the title.” John P Talbot – review snippet from https://www.amazon.com/
