When a correctional officer climbs to the top of his watchtower and opens fire on the inmates and guards, federal investigator Marcus Williams and serial killer Francis Ackerman Jr. must join forces again to unearth the truth behind the incident. What they find is a serial killer using the prison as his hunting grounds. But the Judas Killer's ambitions don't end with a few murders. He wants to go down in history and has no reason left to live.

With Ackerman undercover among the inmates and Marcus tracking down the mastermind on the outside, the team must learn the identity of the Judas Killer and stop a full-scale uprising that he's orchestrated. But the more they learn about what's happening at the prison and why the more enemies they must face. From inside the overrun facility, Marcus and Ackerman must save the hostages and stop an elaborate escape attempt while trying to determine how a rival corporation, the leader of one of the world's most dangerous criminal organizations, and an inmate with no identity only known as Demon fit into the Judas Killer's plans.

Launching a bold new cycle of novels featuring The Shepherd Organization, The Judas Game is searing, mesmerizing fiction—it's Ethan Cross at his very best.

The Judas Game is a riveting crime suspense thriller that is so chilling, it makes the reader grip the arms of their chair, and raises the hair on the back of their neck with goose bumps of fear on their arms! In the fourth book of The Shepherd Thriller series, author Ethan Cross once again raises the bar on chills and thrills with this gripping suspense thriller. Even though this is the fourth book in the series, it can be a stand alone read, as the author seamlessly brings the reader up-to-speed with the continuation of the latest Shepherd Organization's investigation from book to book. Told in the third person narrative, the author weaves a riveting tale set in a prison setting that immediately engages the reader to follow this captivating tale rich in detail and vivid descriptions, with its many twists and turns that doesn't leave the reader an option other than to keep turning the pages to find out what happens next. I am a diehard fan of crime and suspense thrillers, and I must admit that each of the books in this series exceeds my expectations. The intensity of the storyline and the tension of identifying the Judas Killer, and stopping the dangerous plans of Demon and the criminal organization, leads the agents of the Shepherd Organization on a dangerous mission that kept me thoroughly riveted and so engrossed, I literally had to finish the story in one sitting. With a large cast of characters who are realistic and complex people, the author does a phenomenal job of delving into their minds and providing the reader with serial killers who are seriously demented, dangerous criminal organizations with devious plans, and special agents who are determined to bring them to justice. The author transports the reader into this fast paced white-knuckle storyline with his creative interweaving of a psychological cat-n-mouse game between the characters that leaves the reader's heart palpating while holding their breath. It just doesn't get any better than this ... oh wait ... maybe it will in the next book in the series! The Judas Game is one heck of an adrenaline rush of a crime story that is a must read for the true diehard suspense thriller junkie! Disclaimer: I received a copy of the book from the author / publisher in exchange for my honest review.
