There is lots of action, well developed characters, good fun sex and graphic violence. What more can you expect in a book?
The book started out with a VERY brutal murder that seems to be completely gratuitous... which left us wondering who the **** is Iron Eagle and is he really a good guy, but as the book progressed, the author managed to build up the character to actually be sympathetic, as Iron Eagle carefully negotiated the his public life and his... afterhours pursuit, for the depravities of these serial killers (three of whom were dispatched in the first book alone) were so shocking and the killers so callous and depraved you'd cheer Iron Eagle to dispatch them in the most brutal way possible.
Once you get past the blood and gore (which are limited to a few scenes where the serial killers are torturing their victims, and where Iron Eagle got his hand on the killer and doing retribution) the book's plot is actually tolerable with some clever plots as the Iron Eagle play mental games with the detectives and FBI agent while hunting the serial killers with normal investigative work like a cop... For it is no surprise... Iron Eagle is a cop, and the slow reveal by the author starts to make sense. However, why the brutal murder at the beginning was necessary was never explained.
One problem with the author's writing style is he doesn't seem to be a fan of paragraphs. Usually dialogue is written with each person's sentence being one paragraph, but in this book, paragraphs seem to run into each other including a lot of back and forths among characters. Though it could be a problem with Kindle formatting.
There are some sex scenes and even some sexual torture scenes (remember, we are talking about depraved serial killers) that this book should be rated R if possible.
All in all, Rise of the Iron Eagle is a fine setup for a novel that sets up the stage for more cat and mouse as the Iron Eagle will encounter more serial killers, and have to hide his tracks more carefully even as the authorities close in... I am not a fan of the gore genre, but once you look past the gore and shock, what's left is a competent thriller as you'd almost CHEER Iron Eagle exact retribution on some of the most depraved criminals of society, and it makes you think... Are you bad for cheering a vigilante?
cons--not really a con per se, but explicit sexual content is an understatement. the origin of the "Iron Eagle" moniker is nothing compared to what this guy does in the area of unauthorized, back-alley open heart surgery.
surprises-iron eagle is almost -- almost -- a sympathetic sicko.
This is a totally engrossing, very gritty, suspense thriller, stuffed to the brim with hard-core violence, evil, and selfish individuals satisfying their own desires. Nonetheless, it's also populated by individuals of high moral integrity. Then there are a few who straddle the dividing line between the evil and the good. The pages practically turn themselves, and I was quickly so engrossed that I'm determined to read the entire series. I seem recently to be in a groove of L.A. gritty noir, as this is the third novel with that theme and setting I've reviewed in a week.
Major cautionary warning here: the violence is frequent and very upfront. There are murderers, rapists, and pedophiles. There is torture. The novel is definitely 18+: violence, suffering, language, situations.
I hope to read more books by this author!!!
