The most common triggers for homicide are fear, rage, revenge, money, lust, and, more rarely, sheer madness. This isn’t an exact science, of course. Any given murder can have multiple triggers. Sex and revenge seem to be common partners in crime. Rage, money, and revenge make for a dangerous trifecta of triggers, as well. This book offers my memories of homicide cases that I investigated or oversaw. In each case, I examine the trigger that led to death. I chose this theme for the book because even though the why of a murder case may not be critical in an investigation, it can sometimes lead us to the killer. And even if we solve a case without knowing the trigger, the why still intrigues us, disrupting our dreams and lingering in our minds, perhaps because each of us fears the demons that lie within our own psyche—the triggers waiting to be pulled.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The book offers an insider’s look at criminal cases, from the 911 call to the sentencing of the convicted…Kenda does share some useful perspectives; he discusses a criminally neglectful slumlord, argues for the importance of investigative print journalism, and highlights the role therapy and talking can play in healing those who regularly see the worst of humanity. True crime stories with all the gory details.” Library Journal
“Sitting down to read Joe Kenda’s Killer Triggers is like settling in to listen to a masterful storyteller sharing his own story.” J. A. Jance, New York Times bestselling author 
“One of the most successful crime fighters in history…he’s also one of the most quotable tough guys to ever put on a badge.” Men’s Journal
“Legendary…For twenty years Lt. Joe Kenda served as a detective with the Colorado Springs Police Department. During that time he solved 356 of the 387 murder cases he investigated. This is a staggering accomplishment, one almost unheard of in modern American law enforcement.” Salon
“A bona fide true-crime star.” Vulture
