The serial killer, the iron eagle, has his own demons that he is dealing with. He lost someone very special to him. They were killed by a serial killer and he has been hunting for that person.
The characters are well developed and you feel like you really get to know them and who they are and the things that they are dealing with. The scenarios they are in seem feasible. I can picture them in my minds eye. So if you are into psychological thrillers and serial killers along with criminal profilers. I love when they include criminal profilers because they take you inside the mind of the killer. And this book really did that. So if you like these things, this is the book for you. You won't be able to put it down. I can't wait til my next.
This book is about a serial killer going after all the other serial killers in the greater LA area. Then using their own methods of torture, they used on their victims, on them. I know that sounds confusing, but if you read that last sentence slowly, over, and over, it will make sense. The author pretty much made a perfect serial killer. One with a conscience.
But the thing about the book that is so hard to take is how gruesome the torture is because the author goes into detail with it. There is also a great deal of sexual experiences in the book that may, or may not offend a reader, it just depends on the depth of your taste in sex. I do have to say that I hope Molly finds someone who deserves her, and makes her happy. (I was given this book as a gift in exchange for an honest review.)
The Iron Eagle has keen observational skills and often finds and punishes the bad guys before the cops are even aware of their crimes. Some cops love him, others hate him. All agree he's effective.
I loved the character of the Iron Eagle and the other characters were fleshed out as well. The book is very descriptive and includes gore and scenes of rape, mutilation, and torture. This book is not for the faint of heart or for those easily offended. All others will love it.
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?
