"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 ñ one a sociopath, the other a good man whose own love for his evil brother had been exploited his entire life.
The book was so well written with both deaths of Bethany & Dawn.
It reveals how we hold our tragedies close. I also had a half sister murdered here in my village of Kotzebue, Ak. and it is still unsolved! This story kept me glued. Well done Glen!
