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.

Reviewed by Mamta Madhavan for Readers' Favorite Rise of The Iron Eagle (The Iron Eagle Series Book 1) by Roy A. Teel Jr. is a gripping crime fiction that is both brutal and hard hitting, and will keep readers glued to the very end. Homicide Detective Jim O' Brian and Steve Hoffman, an FBI Profiler Special Agent, are looking for a serial killer. Both of them have been trained to detect, but they realize that time is slowly ticking by. Iron Eagle, the protagonist of the story, is someone who believes in an 'eye for an eye' and is ruthless in his killings. He roams the streets of Los Angeles searching for his daily victim, whom he kills in a grotesque manner. As Jim O' Brian and Steve Hoffman get more details and information about the serial killer, they realize that he might be one of them. The portrayal of the serial killer Iron Eagle is done with a lot of dexterity that makes readers feel the cruelty and brutality in his killings. The other characters in the story are also sketched well, making them real and relatable to readers. The narration is descriptive and spine-chillingly honest. The author is expressive and all the heroes in the story are those we see in our daily lives, unlike 'larger-than-life' heroes. The story leaves readers gasping with its horror, killings and crime. The scenes are raw and riveting, and the plot is fast paced. This is a must-read for all those who like crime fiction.

Los Angeles is the second biggest city in the United States and probably home to more then one serial killer. When you live in a city as big as L.A. you have to accept that there will be a lot of crime and the police can’t stop it all or catch all the serial killers out there. There is someone who is on the police’s side and has been hunting down serial killers for twenty years. They call him the Iron Eagle and his real identity is unknown. The Iron Eagle is not your normal serial killer, he catches other serial killers and gets them to confess to their crimes. He then Sends proof to the police and meticulously tortures then kills his victims. The police believe that he may have killed innocent people also and have put together a task force to find the Eagle and bring him to justice. The problem is when you mess with the Iron Eagle you might end up on his cutting table. Rise Of The Iron Eagle by Roy A. Teel Jr. is a brutal book. I like the concept of a serial killer who hunts serial killers but this book was almost to hard-core for me. I’m a horror fan and I have no problem with violence in books but this one was over the top. I found some of the sexual torture in this book to be hard to read and almost couldn’t get through it. That being said whether you like this book or not will depend on how much violence you can take. I think my problem with this book is that I’m not use to reading books that have so much realistic violence. When you read Rise Of The Iron Eagle you know that people have gone through this kind of torture and its a little hard to stomach. If you can handle the violence though, what you will find in this book is a good mystery and a well told story. I thought from the beginning that I knew who the Eagle was but I wasn’t even close and the author kept me guessing throughout. Also all the police and FBI agents came across as realistic and how I think law enforcement agents would act. I like how when the Iron Eagle interrogates someone he follows the law during the interrogation. It’s like he looks at himself as helping the police because the police can’t handle all the evil that’s out there. I was rooting for the Eagle despite him being a vigilante. On the downside I felt the author was trying too hard to be shocking and that’s usually a turn off for me but there was enough to like about this book where I got past the excessive violence. Some of the little things in this book made it a good read. Such as the bar where anyone who’s in law enforcement drinks for free because the owner treats those who risk their lives. Another time there is a homeless man who gets questioned about a murder and we see that he’s not like you would expect a homeless man to act. This book gives a realistic look at the police and shows what they put up with in the field and puts them in a positive light. Crime Fiction fans will love Rise Of The Iron Eagle and the sequels that are available.

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. The writing in this book is very crisp and the story moves very quickly. I could not put this book down and will go so far to say that this is the best thriller I have read this year and probably in the last two years! I got the hardcover edition and the last few pages are a preview of the next book. I will definately be looking the next book!

I cant wait for the next book. Great Job~!

It was free ao I suppose I shouldn't be harsh but this book was marginal at best. It is an interesting concept along the lines if the Dexter series but it is not well written and is totally misogynistic. These police officers and FBI agents talk about sex with their wives and others in very vulgar terms. The one female good guy gets raped and killed. Not to mention there are two or three serial killers running ariund at any given moment. Waste of time.
