Dateline is my all time favorite show, so when Homicide Hunter premiered and I realized it was about real life cases from a retired police detective, I knew I had to watch. I became pretty obsessed with the show and didn’t miss an episode. (The only downside about this is that I feel guilty, because these tragedies belong to real live people.) I was so surprised to see that this a book about Joe Kenda’s cases that were too racy for to put on the television show. Needless to say, I really am excited to read this one.
