Publisher's Summary

In July 1972, Deputy Sheriff Gerard Schaefer picked up two teenage girls, Pamela Wells (17) and Nancy Trotter (18), who were hitchhiking to a local beach. He told them it was illegal to hitchhike in the area and that he would take them back to safety. He lied. 

Schaefer took them to a remote wooded area where he drew his gun, tied them up, gagged them, and looped nooses around their necks. Schaefer received a call on his police radio and had to leave the girls, but he vowed to return and finish what he’d started. 

The terrifying behaviour displayed by the trusted officer was not an isolated case and would pale in comparison to the chilling truth that would eventually surface. 

Schaefer wrote, ‘Doing doubles is far more difficult than doing singles, but it puts me in a position to have twice as much fun. There can be some lively discussions about which of the victims dies first.’

Killer Cop is a dramatic and gripping account of one of the most disturbing men to have sworn to serve and protect us. Ryan Green’s riveting narrative draws the reader into the real-life horror experienced by the victims and has all the elements of a classic thriller. 

CAUTION: This book contains descriptive accounts of sexual abuse and violence. If you are especially sensitive to this material, it might be advisable not to listen.

Haunting !!

This was a very scary case , and I found it difficult to put the book down so I could go to sleep at night. On top of that I had a hard time making it thru the next day as I anticipated the next listening session. Amazing how this monster avoided detection for so long and fooled so many, truly sad how mental health has been viewed in the past and how so many have not been fully diagnosed to avoid the horrific crimes as this ..
The narration brought this story vividly to the forefront of the mind.

If you like true crime this is a must listen..!

Makes you wonder who to trust

Born and raised in Florida I am wondering how I never heard of this before now. Married to a cop and this book makes you wonder just who you can trust. I never had trust issues with my husband but I can’t say the same same for our preacher now that was a man who would take any woman that would let him. Sorry for going on but had to get that out. This story is totally unbelievable that someone could have such vile tendencies towards another human being. And after researching this man I am glad that another took his life while he was in prison. And to think he buried them and dug them up for sex afterwards. Sick sick man. I don’t blame his mother for never contacting him. The book was written and narrated wonderful but the story makes you sick.
I received this free for an honest review from the narrator or author.

True evil.

Both the way the story was written and the narration were very good and compelling. The book certainly allowed for more than a glimpse in the life and mind of a truly evil and depraved person. One can't feel sorry for how his life was ended - quite surprising that it didn't happen earlier than it did.

horrific story

The story was horrific. The things the man did in his position of power made me feel so disgusted. I could not fathom. Overall i wouldn't say i enjoyed the story but respected it as a good story.

I LOVE TRUE CRIME!

I am not going to give away any of this story. I think it is a must read/listen if you are a true crime fan. I am a BIG fan of true crime. Whether it is shows (like ID) or movies, but I am a real fan of the true crime books. This one does not disappoint! It is the kind of story that you walk away feeling "Wow, that could happen to anyone, even me!"
If you like true crime as I do or you are looking to get started on feeling out the genre, read, or listen to this! It will make you an instant fan. The narrator does a great job of making you get goosebumps at certain times! LOVE IT!!!

Truth is Always Worse than Fiction!!

This is a very graphic recounting of a very disturbed individual. Ryan Green once again does his research and then fills in the blanks to give us a horrific story of a violent criminal who preyed on women for many years, hiding behind his badge to keep everyone off his trail. This story is told mostly through the perpetrator's eyes. Where I'm sure some poetic licensing was taken, it sadly wasn't all that much. When you do as much research on true crimes that Mr. Green has done, I'm sure it does take rocket science to fill whatever blanks there are. If you enjoy true crimes which are graphically told then give this book a try. However, if you are faint of heart or react to graphic triggers then leave this one alone! It's disturbing, graphic and quite difficult to listen to to the end. The narration is done very well. Steve White has a very nice voice that adds to the story in a soothing way which made it a bit easier for me to listen to the whole thing.

Great Read

Killer Cop: The Deviant Deputy Who Kidnapped, Raped and Killed was a good read by Ryan Green. This book chronicled Deputy Sheriff Gerard Schaefer. In 1972 he picked up two teenage girls that he found hitchhiking. He lied to them to take out his cruel fantasies. This was only the beginning of his horrendous crimes. I enjoyed reading this true crime story.

Reads like a thriller

This true crime really is as horrific as a thriller. Of course, some license may have been taken and no one is absolutely sure how much of Schaefer's story is fact and how much is fantasy. But it's certainly compelling.

Steve White's narration is quite appropriate for true crime.

Disturbing account of an extremely sick mind

Wow, this is one of the most disturbing true crime books I've listened to or read. I don't recommend listening to this book if you have a difficult time with gruesome and violent crimes against women. It gives descriptions that leaves no room for the imagination to determine what happened. It is put out there to show everyone how horrifying these crimes really were and what his victims went through. This book also does a fantastic job of describing what was most likely going on in this sick mans mind and how he was able to hide it from others. It also shows how Schaefer was able to get into the position to commit these horrific crimes. Since he was a deputy, he had the advantage of being in a position of easily gaining the trust of his victims until it was too late for them to save themselves. There are parts of this book difficult to listen to but I feel that only helped to accurately show just how sick and depraved he was. It is hard to understand the thinking of a serial killer but for people who try to determine what goes through their minds to push them to such gruesome crimes, this is most likely quite accurate. The author obviously did a lot of research for this book. Although it was a bit different than most of the other true crime books out there because parts of it describe the thoughts of the killer, I feel it was very well written and narrated.

Not for the fain hearted

Killer Cop: The Deviant Deputy Who Kidnapped, Raped and Killed.. It is told thru the eyes of the killer and as such it is graphic and horrific. He gets caught not because of good police work but by pure chance & good luck. There can be serial killers & abusers in any community, in any role. One of the worrying facet of this killer was that he was a police officer.
All of us parents have at some time told our daughters if in trouble find a police officer.
It is not a story for the faint hearted. But his victims deserve to be heard and remembered..

Meh

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

This is better than Green's previous books that I have read/listened to, but I really don't like the novelistic approach to the topic. I want to know what happened in regards to Gerard Schaefer, but I don't know what parts of this novel are real and what are just embellished for effect.

Disturbing

The title of my review is disturbing, because that is what this book is. It describes rape and murder from the attackers perspective which is certainly not for the faint hearted. Despite this, I have rated the book high as it is obvious the amount of effort and research that's went into this book.
