    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.

    Killer Cop: The Deviant Deputy Who Kidnapped, Raped and Killed by Ryan Green is a true crime book. I gave it four stars. He was called one of the top five worst serial killers in American history by an FBI agent. It is difficult subject matter to read about a depraved man, but well written and fast-moving. "Gerard no longer felt any need for normal interaction; he had found a whole new world outside of regular life, which was just for him.

"Gerard no longer felt any need for normal interaction; he had found a whole new world outside of regular life, which was just for him. A place where he could explore his desires and control everything, like he was some sort of god." Gerard Schaefer's makeup is described here: "He was incapable of forging a real emotional bond with anyone, because to him, the real world was always secondary. The fantasy world where he could be, and do, whatever he wanted was the one he wanted to live in, so he elected to ignore reality in favour of it." I received a complimentary copy in an Amazon promotion. This did not change my opinion for this review. Link to purchase: https://www.amazon.com/Killer-Cop-Dev...

    The monster unwrapped Ryan Green has done an excellent job of unwrapping, layer by layer, the monster that was Gerard John Schaefer Jr. Beginning with his early childhood, the numerous events that impacted his life and molded his character came together to create the monster that abducted, tortured, mutilated, raped and murder young women. 13

    Far superior to the author's previous book THE TRURO MURDERS, though it's done in the same novelistic style, with lots of invented dialog and similar embellishments.

Warning: This book contains extremely graphic adult content, violence, or expletive language &/or uncensored sexually explicit material (LGBTQ, child verbal/mental/physical/sexual abuse, human sex slavery, prostitution, & trafficking) which is only suitable for mature readers. It may be offensive or have potential adverse psychological effects on the reader. I did not receive any type of compensation for reading & reviewing this book. While I receive free books from publishers & authors, I am under no obligation to write a positive review. Only an honest one. A very awesome book cover, great font & writing style. A very well written true crime serial killer book. It was very easy for me to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. There were no grammar/typo errors, nor any repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of exciting scenarios, with several twists/turns & a great set of unique characters to keep track of. This could also make another great serial killer movie, PP presentation, or better yet a paid-per-view mini TV series or even a documentary (True Crime; American Crime Story; Investigative Discovery). There are no references, works cited, or endnotes so I will only rate it at 4/5 stars. Thank you for the free author; LisaatManybooks; Amazon Digital Services LLC.; book Tony Parsons (Washburn; MSW)

I will never understand how the simple fact that he was a cop, did not get him killed in prison as well as his sexually sadistic crimes perpetrated on young girls as young as 9 years old.

While Ryan gives us a brief synopsis of his early life and his lack of love/affection from his father, who what appears to have made him feel like scum, does not truly convince me that this is what formed his obsession with controlling life and death. I can only see it that he was born this way and eventually. What amazes me, with psychopaths like this, is the need to live two lives. Gerard seemingly had it all, a great job with law enforcement, the wife who supports him completely and the ability to be able to take care of his mother sans the children and pets. He is the pinnacle of the wolf in sheeps clothing. While there have been others that wrote on Gerard, I appreciate Ryan’s writing as he provides the facts, leaves his views on the subject out as well as draws you in emotionally. I have no clue why I love reading and watching a True Crime but I’ll continue to eat up every story Ryan brings to us.

At the end of the book, the author describes Gerard Schaefer's childhood, in an attempt to shed some light onto some of the things that made him become the monster that he became. I don't completely buy this. There are plenty of people who had terrible childhoods, who did not turn out to be abusers or killers.

    Dang, Mr. Green goes straight for the jugular, from the very first words of this book, and never lets up. It was hard to read in the regard that the atrocities committed by Gerard Shaefer are so horrible. Innocent women and children, subjected to his twisted fantasy. He is probably the sickest man I have ever read about. I can't imagine how he escaped the death penalty. Just because he's a cop? He used the badge merely to hide behind and cover his real interests.

    Brilliant 5 stars for this incredible journey into the life of a very deviant & depraved human monster. The retelling of events starts out with high intense action for the reader, but a place the reader comes to know as a comfort zone of the killer. An interesting & insightful peek into Gerard's background & upbringing that is surely the key to his demeanor/behavior. Classic signs that are now considered huge indicators for today's serial killer modus operandi.

    EXCELLENT You know you sort of have to feel sorry for this man as I did, at first...until I really understood how twisted he really was. A lot of people have things in their childhood but don't end up like him. Mr. Green researched these killers and reports all the pertinent facts in his books. His books are different. He relays all information like a story. In my opinion, that makes it easier to read. I don't have to stop so often because of the images in my head. Keep up the good work, Mr. Gree EXCELLENT You know you sort of have to feel sorry for this man as I did, at first...until I really understood how twisted he really was.

    Thank you to the author for supplying an ARC copy in return for my honest review. It is never a hardship to read this author who has rapidly become my favourite true crime writer. He has a knack of getting into the perpertrator’s pysche. The telling of Schaefer’s crimes is well researched but told in a way that engages the reader unlike some books where you feel the author has cribbed from Wikipedia.

    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.

    A terrific read! There is obviously a ton of research done but it is not in any way “dry”. I felt drawn right in to the story. I should know by now not to start one of this authours books in the evening, especially when I have to work in the morning. Thank you to the authour for the complimentary copy in return for an honest review.

    Chillingly excellent! Mr. Green puts all the dots together and delivers a gruesome serial murderer to your lap. He tells his stories with such chilling detail and brings you right into the mangrove forests where the sinister crimes are committed. So much so that you feel the bite of his fist and hear the creak of the ropes. Definitely a book to keep you awake at night!

    Fascinating book! This book not only details the crimes of serial killer, Gerard Schaefer, but it also delves into his depraved mind. This is a truly chilling story. I did find a couple of errors ( the day on which two of Schaefer's victims were kidnapped was listed twice and both Susan and Sarah were listed as the first name of the Place girl who was kidnapped by Schaefer).

    This is the stuff that nightmares are made of. Green definitely has a grip on the psyche of a sick individual. Though I don't normally read true crime, this story is written with a blend of documentary and insightfulness that makes it hard to put down. Even knowing the final outcome, you can't help but take a peek inside the mind of a psychopath.

    Killer Cop Ryan Green is the best true crime writer that I have read. He tells the story from the killers point of view. He keeps it interesting but real. I have read all of his books. Every one was well written.

    This story is told well throughout the book. It captures your attention right away and tells the story in a very disturbing and painful way. You will see how sadistic this cop was through his actions and behavior.

    Well written, horrible story I thought the book was well written but I often cringed reading the details. The raping of innocent, young women should never get to the point where it doesn’t effect us as a society.

    I am a huge true crime and serial killer buff and the synopsis of this book piqued my interest. Going in to it I didn't have too high expectations since the book was only about 100 pages, but I felt that it would still be an interesting story since it is based off of a true story. Well was I disappointed. To get right to the point, the writing style was bad and the story felt flat, like there just wasn't any real substance.

Don't get me wrong, I loved the idea of telling this story and how this cop used his power for nefarious purposes, but the writing just did not do it justice.
