Just finished up this #ARC #NetGalley 🙌🏻 Billy Jensen is a modern day Sherlock Holmes using social media, primarily FB to crowdsource and garner tips in solving and identifying criminal suspects. Frustrated from reporting on crimes as a local beat writer, Billy decided to become a full time amateur citizen detective. He was instrumental in finishing Michele McNamara‘s top selling book as well as hosting both TV crime shows & crime podcasts. 👇🏼

Cinfhen True crime fans will love this dishy book. Billy Jensen is likeable and modest and quick to list all of his failures along with some of his successes. He even offers tips and how to‘s for trying your hand at crime solving. A really engaging read. 1mo

#ARC #NetGalley Billy Jensen went from covering crime stories as a reporter to solving crimes as an amateur sleuth. So far I‘m hooked!!!! Billy is a great storyteller and a really decent guy. He worked alongside Michele McNamara in solving the GSK case. #TrueCrime #InvestigativeReporting

This was my choice for a book by a journalist for the #ReadHarder challenge. I thought it was really good, but I liked the chapters about his own work as a citizen sleuth more than the ones about GSK.

Written by a crime reporter who helped complete “I‘ll Be Gone in the Dark”. He was friends with Michelle ,and they had frequently talked about each other‘s cases. He has made it a goal in life to help solve cold cases ,usually the lesser known ones that don‘t get enough attention. It‘s pretty amazing how he can study a picture or video of the crime,and pick out items to focus on. He‘s helped solve several cases. Podcast is Murder Squad. 3.5 -4 🌟
