Brandin Penza

A popular army vet is found bleeding to death on the cold asphalt of a shadowy parking lot -- his chest littered with too many knife wounds to count. Kenda’s case is stuck in first gear until a gruesome clue leads his team to an unlikely killer whose motive for murder is as heartless as it is confounding.

A young father-to-be is shot dead in broad daylight by a single bullet fired from afar. At the crime scene, Kenda recognizes the hallmark of a skilled sniper.

Then… A young soldier dies from a bullet to the neck from an apparent suicide, but an inconspicuous powder burn spins the case in a whole new direction.

Mary Moebus / Leonard Watson

A seemingly random attack leaves Mary Moebus dead, and police flummoxed by a daunting field of suspects. But when Lt Joe Kenda uncovers a cache of new evidence, he realizes someone’s been lying. Then… A cryptic note leads Kenda to a luxurious bachelor pad with a bedroom soaked in blood and a closet full of deadly secrets.  

Luis Matos and Colleen Johnson

Don Garcia

A 4th of July house party erupts in violence.  A young man tries to flee the scene, but is shot dead behind the wheel of his car. To crack the case, Lt. Joe Kenda must sort through a mountain of suspects, until a peculiar clue puts him hot on the heels of a self-styled gangster with revenge on his mind. 

Gary Davis

A frenzied ambush at a hamburger stand leaves a 16-year old boy dead. Lt. Joe Kenda must cut through a mountain of rumor and innuendo in order to zero in on his prime suspect.  But before he can catch the killer, a surprise witness comes forward and blows the case wide open.
