Anaheim investigator Julissa Trapp is not like other detectives. She’s the only woman on the homicide squad, and a skilled chameleon: undercover cop in vice stings, crime-scene commander, patient confidante of killers. A master interrogator, she invokes her personal experience – and deepest griefs – as a tool to elicit confessions. When a young woman’s body is found at a trash-sorting plant, Trapp learns the murder may be linked to the disappearance of three other women in nearby Santa Ana. Trapp embarks on a dark journey that brings her face to face with a man who takes “a little piece of her soul.” The series is about a singular detective on a relentless, sometimes lonely quest for answers.
From the Los Angeles Times and Wondery, “Detective Trapp” is a new story from Christopher Goffard, the writer and host of “Dirty John.”

A masterpiece

This podcast is exceptional. Its a portrait of a woman with a purpose and tells a horrific story with dignity and respect for the victims. This pod doesn't revel in the horror of its content, doesn't glorify any part of it, unlike some other true crime pods. The story is compelling, the telling is engaging, and the story is complete.

Loving this!

This is one of the best podcasts I have heard. Great pace, suspenseful, interesting characters. I will def recommend it to others.

Difficult to get into the story with all of the chirpy advertisements

I lasted half an episode. I find it difficult to have the somber atmosphere cut up with super chirpy adverts.
