When murder is your business, solving the case is personal …

The Homicide Hunter’s riveting debut novel proves that fiction really can be stranger than truth …

All Is Not Forgiven is the debut crime novel by television star Joe Kenda, a former homicide detective, whose hit series Homicide Hunter and Homicide Hunter: American Detective air on Investigation Discovery, the #1 true-crime channel available in more than 80 million homes. 

In this first novel, the rookie Det. Kenda investigates a 1975 case that begins with the murder of a beloved Colorado philanthropist and society figure whose husband, a gambler and womanizer, appears to have an air-tight alibi.

Mentored by his veteran partner Det. Lee Wilson, a former Nashville singer turned skilled investigator, Kenda’s case quickly attracts attention from the FBI, CIA, and Interpol, for its similarity to a string of killings involving wealthy married women. All the murders appear to have been committed by a hired professional whose trademark is the use of an unusual form of lethal ammunition that leaves no trace.

Detectives Kenda and Wilson travel across the country, following leads to Las Vegas and a mob “made man” pit boss who moonlights as a matchmaker for hit men. In this first extraordinary case, the detectives join a full law-enforcement blitz to track down a twisted killer who has made murder his business.

Praise

“Joe Kenda’s All Is Not Forgiven is a wonderful, authentic read, told as through a casual conversation with a friend. It is an energizing and entertaining trip into Sin City’s seedy underbelly viewed through both sides of the law. Pick this one up.” David Swinson, critically acclaimed author of the Frank Marr trilogy

“Entering the crime-fiction scene with the veritable, visceral voice of a veteran homicide detective, Joe Kenda delivers an addictive debut novel. All Is Not Forgiven is the perfect spine-chiller for a steamy summer night.” Wendy Corsi Staub, New York Times bestselling author of Windfall

“A fascinating, page-turning read. Kenda takes us into the world of a sadistic serial killer turned hired assassin, and the law enforcement officers and agents who pursue him. Told by someone who knows this world inside and out, All Is Not Forgiven offers an absorbing glimpse into the mentality of cops and the tortured minds of the killers they hunt. Add this book to your must-read list.” Barbara Nickless, Wall Street Journal and Amazon Charts bestselling author

“All Is Not Forgiven hums with brutal authenticity—Kenda the author and Kenda the character both deliver big procedural thrills that will keep readers guessing. I don’t remember a debut novel this assured—Kenda is the real deal.” Tod Goldberg, New York Times bestselling author

“All Is Not Forgiven is vicious fun. In his debut novel, real-life homicide detective Joe Kenda unreels a taut, swift story of murder, money, lust, international intrigue, and a sublime bit of revenge.” Jeffrey Fleishman, author of Good Night, Forever

“Joe Kenda’s debut novel is an impressive hard-boiled police procedural written by a man that knows a thing or two about criminal investigations. From the seedy brothels of Copenhagen, to the rugged mountains of Colorado, All Is Not Forgiven is a fast-moving and fascinating crime novel that vividly illustrates the monsters in our midst—and the detectives tasked with bringing them to justice.” Jon Bassoff, author of Beneath Cruel Waters 

“Gripping from the start, true-crime TV star Joe Kenda’s debut novel is an entertaining and quick-paced fictionalized version of a case Kenda handled as a rookie detective in the 1970s. Narrated skillfully by Bradford Hastings, Tim Campbell, and Kenda himself, the audiobook benefits from their ability to produce a variety of voices for the fascinating cast of characters.” AudioFile
