This week I read:
I loved “Killer Triggers” by Joe Kenda! It read very much like his old show, Homicide Hunter on Discovery ID – so much so that I could practically hear Kenda narrating the text inside my head! As Kenda leads us through a handful of his memorable cases, readers will find the text rich with his distinctive mix of wit, humor and bada$$ery!
Even those who have never heard of him before will enjoy this in depth look at how homicide cases were investigated during his tenure at the Colorado Springs PD. A must for any true crime fan!
What I enjoyed the most, though, was how Kenda makes himself vulnerable in this book, discussing his own PTSD demons and promoting the importance of cops, EMTs, etc. to reach out and discuss the traumas they experience on the job to keep it from festering and leading to negative behaviors.
Thanks to NetGalley and the Publishers for an advance copy in exchange for an unbiased review.
For some reason I thought this was going to be a YA book. Then, I was slightly concerned because I felt an immediate disconnect with the MC and the situation. And then . . . I fell in love. This is one of those stories where you expect one thing – some ridiculousness or humor – and you find something else – So. Much. Heart. Much in the vein of “There’s Nothing To See Here”, this story will draw you in and endear you to everyone in it. Sweet and magical and delivers all the feels!
