Adam rocks this podcast

Adam is superb at explaining and defining the nuances of police work. His podcasts are filled with great details about how police departments are structured and operate.

Adam, thanks for sharing your expertise.

Fabulous resource

Just learned about the podcast today and have listened to three episodes. Can’t praise the show enough. The information presented puts any crime fiction writer on a level playing field with an author like Michael Connelly who has his own group of detectives to seek advice from. Even as a retired cop, I learned things from the episodes I’ve listened to especially with respect to the differences in policing in California versus the state I worked in. Highly recommend this podcast and I won’t be missing an episode.

A detective who thinks like a writer!

I found this podcast so helpful I am now sponsoring Adam through Patreon. Adam’s podcast are informative and detailed, and he explains things so clearly and thoroughly. I’ve gotten advice for my crime fiction from a few sources, but the difference with Adam is that he thinks like a writer. He anticipates the scenarios a writer will encounter in fleshing out a story and offers ways to make it work from a storytelling perspective and maintain authenticity. He also values his listeners and their craft.
