I dole out 25 stars as I wander into the wrong townIt s a case of me wandering into the wrong town now THAT S the true crime But really what is this fiction broad doing in true crime The author helps solve tough cases by using social media Interesting idea but a whole book about how he came to do this And then a how to for others I don t think so I went from bored to furiousI knew it I knew it I knew it I should have stayed in my own lane continued reading exciting made up stories I guess I was expecting something different I had read a couple of positive reviews from friends and I thought hm the psychology of the criminal fascinates me so I ll check it out Like the rest of the world I shiver when I think of The Boston Strangler Son of Sam Charlie Manson and I read a lot about them ha especially when my mom clipped every Boston Strangler article ever written and sent them to me when I moved to Boston at age 18 Please explain to me why she would do that by reading them I would ward off murderThe book is a memoir or a report by a man who has made it his life work to solve murders and to a lesser extent find missing people What s uniue about him is that he has figured out how to get tips through social media He was involved in other new ideas about how the Internet can help solve crimes like using familial DNA to track criminals He has solved a couple of murders no small featJoy Jar Jensen is a good guy who is passionate about catching the bad guys Persistence is his middle name That he cares so much and works so hard at it earns him many gold stars He kept gore out of it This was much appreciated He didn t get off on shocking us with all the gross details of crimes There were a few mentions of the bizarre things a sicko had done like burying a body in cat litter but he didn t dwell on them The teensy blob of story about the author s father s edgy past and the father son relationship was the best part of the book The few statistics were interesting For example I can t fathom that there are 5000 unsolved crimes a year in America It was interesting to hear about how you can target areas genders age groups etc when you re trying to reach strangers on FacebookComplaint BoardThat s not what I THOUGHT I was going to hear When am I going to figure out how to ditch those expectations I thought I would hear the author s take on the twisted minds of the sickos who commit heinous murders I wanted psychology And I guess I expected the author to zero in on one or two crimes Nope that wasn t what the book was aboutDon t tell me about crimes that still aren t solved The author gave many too many details about what he did to try to solve particular crimes only to conclude by saying he never solved most of them That got obnoxious frustrating and disappointing real fast like I realized early on that I m only interested in hearing a detailed report of all the steps you went through to solve a crime IF in fact you DID solve the crime Why do I want to know about what didn t work I think it s natural to want closure that s true in fiction of course but also when you re talking about true crime Yeah we did this and this and we even did this but no we didn t solve the crime Sorry to say the bandito is still out there We re back at suare 1 It s like telling me you lost your keys then described in excruciating detail all the nooks and crannies where you searched for them only to end with I never did find the damn keys I wanted you needed you to find the keys the story of the search isn t interesting unless there is success at the end I know cold cases fascinate people and they sort of fascinated me too until I read this book Oh I was so bored I mean really bored for the first 90 percent of the book in fact I dreaded picking the book up The author presented a jumbled report about a few crimes that he tried to solve going on and on spewing out details of his methods and perseverance It was pretty show offy I m sorry yawn city I didn t need to know about what day he met with other crimefighters and details of the conversations they had I wanted lively I got droning Many journalists are good storytellers this author is not He jumped around going back and forth between crimes and his language was dull and repetitive Because of the sort of staccato scattered monotone I didn t end up truly feeling enough for the victims The purpose of the book I realize wasn t to talk much about the victims but instead to outline how the author went about trying to solve crimes He name dropped crimes and solvers that I was unfamiliar with and this was annoying I m sure people who follow true crimes and crime fighters loved itThe last 10 percent made me see red So I was bored for 90 percent but the last 10 percent made me furious It was a how to for jo schmos who want to solve crimes themselves Before you attack let me just say that I KNOW that there s a whole group of people who want to be amateur sleuths they re all part of a club and they are avid listeners to the author s podcasts and his crime solving efforts I think it s cool that the public can occasionally help solve a crime I know some people found the last section fascinating and useful I on the other hand felt like I been plopped down into at a UFO convention and I didn t fit in and I wasn t going to report any sightings because I wasn t onboard Here s the deal The author uses social media to track down the bad guys He is a smart passionate responsible man who wants everyone to share his hobby of catching the bad guys But not everyone is like him The last 10 percent of the book is a detailed DIY instruction manualOkay deep breath I don t think untrained citizens should try to be detectives period First it s dangerous There are trained experienced paid detectives who do this job One of the things you re supposed to do is buy space on Facebook or other social media targeting certain demographics so you can circulate pictures of the criminal you re trying to catch Then you wait for tips to come in The author gives you a couple of no no s so you ll be safe from crazy criminals trying to find you but I think it s irresponsible of the author to lead people down this road Some people aren t going to remember or want to adhere to the what not to do s and they may end up being stalked or even dead The author tells one story about an amateur sleuth with a day job as a doctor who got herself killed by a gang in Mexico she was investigating And sometimes these zealous hobbyists ruin the lives of innocent people once they post a photo of a suspect the suspect s reputation is toast even if they didn t do the crime In these Internet days when stories and pictures are eternal it s hugely bad to point a finger at an innocent personSecond you better be a rich person with no job if you want to be an amateur sleuth So it s not true that even you can find bad guys because you may be too poor to do so The author explains that you have to buy space on Facebook or other social media so you can send out pictures of potential criminals The money you throw into it the people you can reach Yeah I have hundreds of dollars to throw around so I can maybe help solve a crime And about the time reuired he says it s a 247 job Really This comment assumes that no one has a day job Wouldn t it be nice if we had the time and luxury to have a selfless virtuous and applaudable volunteer job as a crime fighter One final nit about that last maddening 10 percent The author in his earnest thoroughness even tells you the location of icons you need to click on the Facebook interface We all know what it s like when web builders decide to redo the site moving buttons randomly left to right and taking away features and whole menus I go on a cussing jag and fantasize sending letters telling them a thing or two It happens all the time I used to edit and write online Help and believe me I was horrified when the interface was radically redesigned after I carefully described which button to click and where No fun So back to this book the instructions the author outlined won t apply and will surely frustrate people whenever a new designer decides to impress their boss and change the look of the site The author should not have gone into that much detail the information will become obsolete Okay I ll stop my rant As I said I know the author s heart is in the right place and solving crimes is laudable People who love true crime will love this book It just wasn t for me Thanks to NetGalley for the advance copy Christmas

Free download Chase Darkness with Me æ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Have you ever wanted to solve a murder Gather the clues the police overlooked Put together the pieces Identify the suspectJournalist 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 thereBut after the sudden death of a friend crime writer and author of I'll Be Gone in the Dark Michell. Whenever people ask me why I only write about unsolved murders I always say the same thing because I hate the guy who got away with it When you think about a True Crime book it s usually about some unsolvable crime or an elusive criminal We rarely see the amount of work and determination that goes into solving mysteries Chase Darkness With Me by Billy Jensen is a fascinating real life journey of Bill Jensen from being a crime reporter to helping authorities in solving real life cold cases In this engrossing memoir Jensen takes the reader on his uest to hunt down killers using social media and crowdsourcingThe book begins from Bill s childhood with his father reading him crime headlines from the paper which fueled his interest in true crime to becoming a crime journalist Jensen details his early work as a journalist and what drove him to crime investigations He recalls his early successes failures and his frustration with the system which eventually made him take to solving crimes himself The book recounts several cases including the Halloween Mask Murder case the case of fugitive hiding out in Mexico and the Bear Brook murders among others cases where he helped find killers for police around the country using social media Also covered in the book is Jensen s experience of working with fellow journalist Michelle McNamara who was investigating the Golden State Killer case The author has included a section at the end of the book for those who wish to work as an online citizen detective to track killers and fugitives with a complete list of rules tips and cautions If you ve ever wanted to become a citizen detective you may find this very useful though personally I find the idea a bit risky Chase Darkness with Me allows readers to understand the tough world of crime solving Jensen uses groundbreaking techniues to identify the criminals behind seemingly unsolvable murders Using DNA databases crowdsourcing on social media is a game changer but the results are still hard and slow to come by Jensen is honest about his successes and failures and the many dead ends in the pathThis book is also a reality check for a lot of armchair detectives crime solving is tough frustrating and in the end don t expect to be the hero In a way this story is about a man s journey through darkness to find the light at the end of the tunnel The success of the book lies in the fact that Jensen makes you feel part of the journey You feel disappointed after every setback you feel thrilled after every breakthrough and you feel happy after solved caseI also enjoyed his childhood stories including his interactions with his father which I found uite emotional My only complaint about the book is that the author has covered many cases in the book and it s hard to keep up with all of them The book starts with a case meets a dead end and is finally solved a few chapters later The chapters could have been organized a bit better This book would definitely interest true crime fans a lot It has multiple causes and offers a uniue perspective on the world of crime solving Many thanks to the publisher Sourcebooks and NetGalley for the ARC
