Book Description

Is The Iron Eagle a psychotic serial killer?
Or a new breed of Justice?

Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Homicide Detective Jim O’Brian and FBI Profiler Special Agent Steve Hoffman are hunting for a brutal serial killer; however, this case defies the profiling rules both men have been trained to detect. “The Iron Eagle” appears to only hunt and capture serial killers. Time is of the essence as with each passing day “The Eagle” gets more brazen. The deeper O’Brian and Hoffman dig into profiling the killer, the more they realize that this is more than a race against time – it’s a race laden with the realization that the killer may be one of their own.

From the inside flap:

The city of Los Angeles is no stranger to violence. It has both a colorful and grotesque history with it. Sheriff’s Homicide Detective Jim O’Brian and FBI Profiler Special Agent Steve Hoffman are also no strangers to the violence of the sprawling metropolis, but in the past decade something has changed. There’s a serial killer preying on other serial killers – some known by law enforcement, others well off radar. “The Iron Eagle,” a vigilante, extracts vengeance for the victims of Los Angeles’ serial killers. His methods are meticulous and his killings brutal. With each passing day, “The Iron Eagle” moves with impunity through the streets of Los Angeles in search of his prey. O’Brian and Hoffman create an elite task force with the sole purpose of catching “The Eagle” and bringing him to justice. But the deeper they delve, the more apparent it is that he may very well be one of their own. As the two men stare into the abyss of their search, the eyes of “The Iron Eagle” stare back.

REVIEW REVIEW REVIEW

Rise of the Iron Eagle by Dr. Roy A. Teel, Jr.
Roy A. Teel, Jr. writes for those of us who love well-written crime fiction. If you are like me, and have longed dreamed of finding an author who could write crime fiction as gritty and realistic as true crime, but that also included the detail and information known to true crime, including the knowledge and insight of crime, the research necessary to understand the type of criminal, the ability to understand the technical aspects of the scene, and so forth, then search no more. Roy A. Teel, Jr. is your man. His writing is gritty, hard-hitting and pulls no punches.
Now, I’m going to be brutally honest here. If you prefer cozy mysteries, romances with long-lusty sighs, and heart-felt pleas of ever-lasting love, Teel is NOT for you. If you want clean, tidy, and prudish, Teel is none of those things, and you will probably not like his work. His writing smacks of the real world. It is violent and hard-hitting. When he writes of death, the pages bleed, the book screams in agony, and less hardened readers may want to flinch in horror.
His protagonist, the Iron Eagle, is a killer of serial killers. This guy isn’t “Dexter” of TV fame. The Iron Eagle is a man who believes in an “eye for an eye” in the most vivid and delicious interpretation of the phrase. The serial killers he pursues are despicable; Teel describes how they kill, bit by bit. If you don’t want details, real crime writing probably isn’t your genre. It isn’t pretty. Crime never is.
Teel is a man who knows his crime. He comes from a life molded by murder, so he understands the long-term effects of the violent death of a loved one. He also believes in exhaustive research. He understands serial killers and what they really do to their victims.

5.0 out of 5 stars Is He a Vigilante or a Hero? September 24, 2014
Format:Hardcover
This review is based on a free copy obtained from the author but reflects my own opinion.

When I first read the book summary, I was thinking of Dexter but I can't imagine Dexter being this good. Steve Hoffman is an FBI profiler working with Jim O'Brien, a detective trying to get a handle on someone who hunts serial killers. Nicknamed the Iron Eagle, the killer extacts complete confessions from his victims before killing them in the way that they killed their own victims.

At the start of the story Hoffman and O'Brien are called to the murder of a retired detective nicknamed "The Old Man," who has apparently been killed by the Eagle but not does not appear to be a serial killer at all. This confuses the two and they start to worry that the Eagle is getting more dangerous as he has gone outside his usual pattern. To make matters worse a prior victim of the Eagle was the granddaughter of the Old Man and also a cop. O"Brien and Hoffman surmise that one or both of the victims were getting close his his identity and he needed to silence them. They soon realize that the Eagle must be some sort of cop himself and that makes it more daunting as he would be familiar with all police procedures and be more difficult to catch.

Later those they love seem to be in danger from the Eagle and every confrontation they have with him (note: he wears a mask) seems to show how futile their resistance is as he seemingly overpowers them with ease.

Later we will learn the identity of the Eagle and it made me feel he was a lot like Batman of the Dark Knight stories. We also will learn what motivates him and really want to root for him. There will be times when he must pull out all stops to ensure those close to him are safe.

5.0 out of 5 stars I have to say this book was very good to me September 16, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I have to say this book was very good to me. It is a crime story that keeps you captivated. When a serial killer starts taking out other serial killer brutally and harshly it makes you wonder is this guy a born killer or a whole new form of justice. But for the declivities on this case justice must be served even if it may be one of their own.

The author was very good in keeping me interested and even had me thinking should I be rooting for the killer or the detectives. I mean when the bad guy is essentially taking out other bad guy you have to pause. Whatever your view when reading this book I can say that it was a well written and entertaining book. Full of suspense and it's raw and gritty. I really good crime story that I recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars I wish I could give a good background of The Eagle October 21, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I wish I could give a good background of The Eagle; a profile if you will, but to do so would be a grave mistake as it would completely deprive readers of the deliciously horrific novel I hold in my hands. Imagine a set not unlike that of Thomas Harris’ beautiful villain Hannibal Lecter. Many who have already read Book One are comparing The Eagle to Dexter. Having never watched the show or read the books I couldn’t speak intelligently enough to make that comparison. But to be honest, this book is unique despite any similarities one may spot. It’s worthy in its own right and should stand alone amid the other famous killers, psychos and vigilantes that have been written about over the years. Instead, imagine a crime scene like nothing you would ever read about in your local papers. At least not here in the States. European papers tend to offer up some of the more bloody scenes for their readers but I highly doubt even The Daily Mail UK would stomach a publication of the likes Mr. Teel creates on a whim. The crime scenes alone would be Ted Bundy’s wet dream, let alone any fan of Harris or J.D. Robb’s In Death series. Are they disturbing? Yes. In a very real sense. But no one ever created a horror scene they didn’t want people to visualize.
I received Rise as an ARC from Bostick Communications, looking for readers for a new book series by a fantastic author who makes your horror juices flow. I cringe when I get a new book in the mail from Roy Teel Jr. Though not because he is a bad writer, because I know that inside that book will be torture and terror enough to keep anyone up all night. I love every delicious second.
Every time someone has told me that any given book or movie is “not for the faint of heart” I wind up highly disappointed.

More About the Author

On May 11, 1995, at 30, Roy's life was irrevocably changed. After walking into the hospital, he was admitted and later received the worst possible diagnosis - Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis. His doctors gave him two years to live, and he left the hospital in a wheelchair. Roy, not one for giving up, and having a, then, three-year-old daughter and an 11-year-old son, went immediately into human subjects research at UCLA and spent 12 years (1995-2007) as a human research subject. His experience gave him a unique look behind the scenes of medicine and the processes that are required to get drugs through the research chain, from the animal research phase to using those drugs in humans in clinical trials, and, if successful, on to the FDA for approval. Roy participated in four major experimental drug trials, and one of those ended up giving him thyroid cancer, which was diagnosed in January 2001.

Life as a Survivor

Roy is a proud cancer survivor and has refused to let MS define his life. His dedication to his work and to human subject research both inspired his writing as well as showed the real human condition when laid bare. As an author, Roy A. Teel Jr. is very diverse, and his works include both fiction and nonfiction. He earned his bachelor's degree in Ministerial Studies through Berean University of the Assemblies of God then went on to earn doctorates of Divinity and Biblical Studies through ULC Ministries.

Nonfiction

Roy's first nonfiction book, The Way, The Truth, and The Lies: How the Gospels Mislead Christians about Jesus' True Message, was published in 2005 and is taught in both religious and secular universities in the U.S. and abroad. Against The Grain: The American Mega-Church and its Culture of Control was published in 2008. This second book reveals the unflattering true faces of the "Goliaths of God" and shows religion and churches for what they really are - businesses - very, very lucrative and influential businesses involved in many facets of American society.

Short Fiction

In 2008, Roy published a collection of short stories titled, Light of Darkness: Dialogues in Death. These collected stories were inspired by both his difficult and troubled childhood as well as his years in clinical trials. He met and knew many people, many whom lost the battle due to natural causes, or in some cases, by their own hand, that he felt compelled to fictionalize and share their stories.

Novel-length Fiction

In 2013, Roy released his first novel, And God Laughed, a neoplatonic dialogue between one man and God. Although now a secular humanist, Roy believes in God but rejects all religions as man's folly and wrote a fictional narrative about a relationship with God outside of religion.

Current Project

In 2014, Roy began publishing his latest and largest project - a 15-book geographically-centered hard boiled, mystery, suspense, thriller crime series: "The Iron Eagle Series." The main character, a former Marine Corps Black Operative turned rogue FBI agent, hunts serial killers in Los Angeles. Each novel addresses different subjects, and while fiction, all titles deal with real world subject matter. "The Iron Eagle Series" is not about things that can't hurt you. What happens in these novels can happen to any one of us if we let our guard down and/​or are in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Life as an Author

After battling Multiple Sclerosis for nearly 16 years, Roy began devoting his energies and passions to the full-time art of storytelling. Although he is no longer able to work in a high stress executive environment, his life has taken on a new mission: to inform and entertain. His disability has brought with it an unforeseen blessing. He can finally take medications to alleviate some of the pain from his MS and focus on the pleasures of character creation and the joys of putting words to paper.
