Please join us for an in-person event with New York Times bestselling author, co-star of ID’s Unraveled: Long Island Serial Killer, and true-crime investigative journalist Billy Jensen, as he talks about his latest book, Killers Amidst Killers: Hunting Serial Killers Operating Under the Cloak of America’s Opioid Epidemic. Readers ride shotgun with Jensen as he attempts to solve a mysterious series of murders and missing persons, investigating possible serial killers, crooked cops, and an opioid epidemic wreaking havoc and providing cover for murderers. Killers Amidst Killers begins in 2017, when two young women—best friends Danielle and Lindsey—go missing in Columbus, Ohio, within weeks of each other, and their bodies are found soon thereafter. As Jensen investigates Danielle and Lindsey’s cases, he comes across other missing and murdered women, and before long, he uncovers eighteen of them. All unsolved. With no one talking about it.

Billy Jensen has solved more than a half dozen homicides and helped find seven missing persons. Law enforcement agencies reach out to him to help in cases that have them stumped, using him as a “consulting detective.” The New York native has written crime stories for Rolling StoneLos Angeles MagazineBoston Magazine, and Miami New Times, was managing editor of the Long Island Press and a crime stringer for the New York Times. He was a producer and investigator for the Warner Bros’ syndicated show Crime Watch Daily. After his friend Michelle McNamara suddenly passed away, he and her researcher helped finish her book I’ll Be Gone in the Dark about the hunt for the Golden State Killer, which became a NYT #1 bestseller. Jensen’s own true crime memoir, Chase Darkness with Me, was a NYT bestseller. He starred in the Oxygen special “Murder at the Mansion: Rebecca Zahau” and was featured heavily in the HBO docuseries “I’ll Be Gone in the Dark.” He is co-host of the top ten podcast Jensen and Holes: The Murder Squad, and has appeared on a number of national shows.
