Publisher's Summary

Orange Police Sergeant (Ret.) Michael W. Streed is the SketchCop. He's a one-of-a-kind crime fighter who's frequently called into action by police departments seeking help solving their most difficult cases.
For over three decades, Michael has provided signature images for the country's most notorious murders, rapes, and kidnappings, including the kidnapping and murder of five-year-old Samantha Runnion as well as the Baton Rouge Serial Killer.
The SketchCop has fought crime coast to coast, from Los Angeles to Baltimore, Salt Lake City to Baton Rouge. Along the way he has papered the walls of police squad rooms with sketches of their cities' most dangerous criminals.
In this collection of true crime stories, Michael shares cases from his own portfolio. He describes how he connects with and empowers courageous victims and eyewitnesses from all walks of life. Using their descriptions, the author creates lifelike sketches of the assailants with an accuracy that has led to quick identifications and captures.
SketchCop - Drawing a Line Against Crime provides listeners a glimpse at some of Michael W. Streed's career cases and the significant role he plays in the criminal justice system.

An Education In True Crime

Any additional comments?

I'm a true crime junkie and am always interested in learning something new about the process by which a criminal is caught. This was a fascinating, in-depth look at the evolution of forensic art and a pioneer in the field's personal experiences as both a cop and sketch artist. Covering many different types of cases, this book had both great story telling and also a big heart. Streed is a talented writer and was clearly a great police officer. Gauffi gives a very solid performance as narrator; I would recommend this book to any fans of true crime.<br/><br/>I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

The story behind the sketches

What did you like most about SketchCop?

I liked the style SketchCop is written in. The author did a great job to make me feel like I know him and like I want to follow the story. I also loved the intimate details the author provides about working with victims and witnesses of crime to create a profile of the assailant.

What does Stuart Gauffi bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Great voice, very suited to the book, portrays what the author wanted to convey very well.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I listened to the book in one sitting, it is so full of case studies and I just wanted to listen to them all.
