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.
Four Boundless Stars
This book was a very disturbing, chilling, but surprisingly good read. I can't say that I loved this book, because It was a hard read for me, but it was still good. It follows the lives of detectives and crazed killers, one being The Iron Eagle, through so many horrors it's hard to picture. This was like watching a harsh episode of CSI. It follows the Iron Eagle as he takes out the worst of the worst, other serial killers. While, he himself is a serial killer, he only kills the bad. Never the good, and never without reason. For that you have to admire him a little. While it was a good read and one that I couldn't put down I have to say that it was gruesome and hard to read at times. Id recommend this book, but only to the people that can handle it. This book left me on the edge of my seat the entire read and the ending was such a cliffhanger I wish I had book 2 right now so I can find out what happened. So, overall this book was a good read and I want to say thank you for the opportunity to read and review it.
