�You don�t have to have a murdered sister to be a good homicide detective, but it helps.�
Finding Bethany, is a behind-the-scenes true crime memoir of murder and justice in the Last Frontier of Alaska. Finding Bethany is the true story of how, as a young boy, Glen Klinkhart was unable to save his sister from a heinous sexual homicide, and how he began his journey as a police officer to find the lost, the missing, and to bring those who would do evil upon others to justice. His career as a homicide detective takes the reader along as he travels from the brink of exhaustion and obsession and into the dark and evil world of sociopathic killers, and those who would do anything to help them.
Finding Bethany details what real life homicide investigations are like, from his unique perspective as a victim and as a reluctant hero. The reader will experience the bizarre twists and turns down dark paths which result in macabre dead ends, and unexpected miracles found within the darkest of circumstances. His cases include the stories of people who were willing to give of themselves for someone they often didn�t even know. Finding Bethany is also about two brothers � one a sociopath, the other a good man whose own love for his evil brother had been exploited his entire life.

Reviewed by Michelle Robertson for Readers' Favorite Fifteen-year-old Glen Klinkhart finds himself unable to reconcile his emotions of guilt and anger over his sister Dawn's atrocious murder. All he knew is that he needed to find justice for his sister's death, and others like it. Glen Klinkhart enters the Alaskan State Police Academy and makes his way up the ranks to eventually become a homicide detective. Throughout his career he has solved cases, dealt with killers, suffered through much grief, pain, frustration, and many more raw emotions. Finding Bethany is a highly detailed account of Glen Klinkhart's career as a homicide detective that concentrates on the specific case of a young woman, Bethany Rose Correira. Many readers may automatically think of beautiful mountain ranges, animals, wilderness, along with pioneer "rough necked" people when they hear of Alaska. Although beautiful, mysterious with its wilderness, a lot of Alaska's dangers come from within the cities and the people themselves. Finding Bethany is a true story of the author Glen Klinkhart's experience with such dangerous people as one of Alaska's homicide detectives for 17 years. The author gives readers a look "behind the headlines" as he brilliantly, expertly, and expressively describes one of his most trying, frustrating, and painfully heartrending cases - finding Bethany Rose Correira. The book contains specific processes the crime departments, police departments, FBI, and ATF have to go through in order to investigate, process, and book a suspect. The book is highly impressive with its criminology content, forensic details, and technological aspects described throughout each chapter. Any reader interested in criminology, law enforcement, forensics, or who just loves a good mystery will fare well reading this memoir.
