If you are a fan of true crime, you have heard of Billy Jensen. Billy Jensen is a crime journalist who focuses on unsolved cases. You may know him as the person who helped finish Michelle McNamara’s book I’ll Be Gone in the Dark after her sudden death in 2016. Or perhaps as co-host of the true crime podcast The Murder Squad with cold case investigator Paul Holes. You can read more on the podcast here in our spotlight.

Jensen’s new book Chase Darkness with Me is out today. Jensen’s website describes the book as follows:

Have you ever wanted to solve a murder? Gather the clues the police overlooked? Put together the pieces? Identify the suspect?
Journalist Billy Jensen spent fifteen years investigating unsolved murders, fighting for the families of victims. Every story he wrote had one thing in common–they didn’t have an ending. The killer was still out there.
But after the sudden death of a friend, crime writer and author of I’ll Be Gone in the Dark, Michelle McNamara, Billy became fed up. Following a dark night, he came up with a plan. A plan to investigate past the point when the cops had given up. A plan to solve the murders himself.
You’ll ride shotgun as Billy identifies the Halloween Mask Murderer, finds a missing girl in the California Redwoods, and investigates the only other murder in New York City on 9/11. You’ll hear intimate details of the hunts for two of the most terrifying serial killers in history: his friend Michelle McNamara’s pursuit of the Golden State Killer and his own quest to find the murderer of the Allenstown Four. And Billy gives you the tools–and the rules–to help solve murders yourself.
Gripping, complex, unforgettable, Chase Darkness with Me is an examination of the evil forces that walk among us, illustrating a novel way to catch those killers, and a true-crime narrative unlike any you’ve read before.


You can find Chase Darkness with Me online on Amazon, Barnes and Noble and on Billy Jensen’s website.
