Overview

When Stacey arrived at Bill Bateman’s for her 5 year class reunion, she had no idea how a memory from her past would alter her future. In one innocent moment, a simple cordial act leads one on a path of jealous rage and another fighting for their life. Tempers flare, threats are exchanged, blood is shed, and the services of the homicide detectives are soon requested.

In his second release, former homicide detective and award-winning author, Ken Lang, unveils the inner workings of a chaotic homicide unit. Standing In Death’s Shadows: More True Stories from a Homicide Detective is a fascinating and revealing read that throws you right into the conflict between the victims, their killers, and the detectives who are tasked to solve their murders.

Ride along as the detectives are dispatched to the electric company retiree’s house for a suspicious death. Found draped over the edge of his bathtub, you’ll experience how the investigators struggled to determine the cause of death and put the pieces of the puzzle together. As you follow along with some astonishing revelations discovered during the autopsy, you’re sent on an excursion for evidence that will reveal untold truths and cost another their life.

Become a detective’s shadow as they are summonsed to the scene of a bewildering apartment fire where firefighters make a grizzly discovery. With the charred remains found in a peculiar way, the family of the lone tenant prays that the authorities can make sense of their unexplainable loss. But when the detectives scour the ruined apartment and yield little for evidence, they finds themselves left with one slim chance to solve the case—and that chance requires them to race across country to beat the odds.

A rare insider account of the exhilarating pace of a homicide detective’s life, Standing In Death’s Shadows: More True Stories from a Homicide Detective is a true crime adventure that thrusts you into the middle of the action and will leave you with wanting more.

I bought Ken's first book as a Christmas present for my daughter and when I saw this one come out wanted to read it. I have to say I was not disappointed. As a homicide detective, Ken Lang takes us right into the heart of the story with descriptions that allow readers to visualize what is happening right down to the status of the body to the type of murder weapon. Definitely looking forward to the last book in the series.
