Cheri Reviews Killer Triggers by Joe Kenda

Killer Triggers: Murder Comes Down to Sex, Drugs, or Money by Joe Kenda

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


This was my first experience with Joe Kenda. I’m only really aware of him because my true-crime sister, Andy, has mentioned his show several times trying to get me to track it down to watch. I never did. I can be very lazy…

I saw Killer Triggers on offer with NetGalley and thought this would be a great way to get some exposure to the former homicide detective and his cases. And all I had to do was click a button so it was very easy – and right in front of my face.

Joe Kenda was exactly what I would expect a hard-nosed homicide detective to be. I’m so glad that I got to listen to the audiobook narrated by him because I don’t think the words and stories would have had the same effect if I had read them with my eyes. He is quite the character! And I love his language. Now I’ve even got his show bookmarked. As usual, I’m so late to the party that the show is out of production. Oh well.

As for the cases, each one was interesting and the author’s interjection of various facts and side stories made them even more enjoyable to listen to. I always feel weird mentioning that reading a book or watching a show about murder is enjoyable but it is. I feel terrible for the victims and their loved ones but the process of finding the killers and their psychology is truly fascinating.

Thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for the opportunity to get to know Joe.
