This book is very well written. I have read a lot of true crime books, where most emphasize on the facts, profiling and why they commit the crime.. This one takes a different approach.
I always felt empathy for the victims in other books, are appalled at what was done and have been even scared at times...
I learned a lot about how people were found, whether they were a victim or had committed a crime.
It was very interesting to learn a different approach to law enforcement. Not only how it is done but the history behind sketching.
I was amazed at the sketch aspic of law enforcement. I really didn't realize how personal it could be, or how detailed the methods are to achieve a sketch!
Not only did the book cover the facts, it made you feel the emotion of the stories, some of the stories even had humor, the author gave any honest picture of law enforcement as he lived it.
I've got a whole new respect for individuals who choose a career in law!
The material is somewhat repetitive and I found myself skimming until I got to the next case history. The book contains some illustrations comparing the author's sketch to the suspect's photograph.
I deducted one star for the "more than ten" typographic errors.
