'It's a movie plot come to life … who doesn't want to read that immediately?' Karen Kilgariff, co-host of My Favorite Murder and co-author of #1 New York Times bestseller Stay Sexy and Don't'Get Murdered, on Chase Darkness with Me
The search for the serial killers operating under the cloak of America's opioid epidemic
Billy Jensen is 'the reason true crime is having a moment', according to Booklist. He is a bestselling author, co-host of the hit podcast The Murder Squad and a true-crime investigative journalist who helped finish Michelle McNamara's masterpiece, I'll Be Gone in the Dark.
In Killers Amidst Killers, Jensen takes on the unsolved cases of dead and missing women in Ohio, whom he suspects were victims of serial killers on the loose and operating under cover of the opioid epidemic.
The story begins in 2017, when two young women go missing within weeks of each other, and their bodies are found soon thereafter. As Jensen investigates these cases – the facts not found in old police reports and faded photos but unfolding before readers' eyes – he comes across other missing and murdered women, and before long, he uncovers eighteen of them. All unsolved. And no one is talking about it.
Billy Jensen is a true-crime journalist and author of the New York Times bestseller, Chase Darkness With Me: How One True Crime Writer Started Solving Murders. He co-hosts The First Degree podcast and Jensen & Holes: The Murder Squad podcast.
