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.

If you could sum up SketchCop in three words, what would they be?

Immensely Interesting Artistry

What did you like best about this story?

I've always been intrigued by the talents, skills and ability to take a set of diverse flashes of memories, under duress and render a portrait of a perpetrator of the "alleged" variety. Empathy with victims, interpretation of their descriptions, etc.

Which character – as performed by Stuart Gauffi – was your favorite?

Michael Streed, this is, after all, the author's biography. I have to positively remark about Stuart Gauffi. He has one of the most memorable voices! Remember Jack Webb of Dragnet? You probably won't recognize the name Steven 'Steve' M. Zirnkilton, but you will certainly remember his voice on the opening line to Law and Order: SVU: "In the criminal justice system, sexually-based offenses are considered especially heinous..."Mr. Gauffi has that kind of strong, memorable talent. It was perfect for this work!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This is an eye opener into the workings of police artists. A very interesting one, in my opinion.
