Evil and the Details: The Iron Eagle Series Book Two

From The Midwest Book Review:

"Evil and the Details" Book two, in the Iron Eagle crime novel series.

In this read we are taken to Los Angeles, where a serial killer is capturing young teenage boys and doing horrible things to them before he kills them. The entire city of protective agencies is alerted, from agents from the FBI to Special Agents from the Sheriff's Office and even one called, The Iron Eagle, who battles evil his way and is not appreciated by the conventional law enforcers. Is there one lone killer or is something happening that is more than anyone expected?
The Plot thickens. I really lost myself in this story. Yes, it is a bit gruesome but the author does a great job in getting you involved with what is happening and the different characters. I found the different characters to be well defined making them very real to life in the mind's eye. It can be at times quiet morbid and sobering, sad and upsetting, yet it is that pull on the emotions that keeps you motivated to move on in hopes of an end. Throwing in 'The Iron Eagle,' I feel was a good move on the author's part. I found myself cheering for him, even though he works outside of the law, his vengeance on evil was appreciated.

I really enjoyed this read and am looking forward to the continued story. Well done, Mr. Teel, keep them coming.

This review is from: Evil and the Details (The Iron Eagle Series) (Hardcover)

This series is a 15 book series. They can be standalones but as a series you would definitely get a lot of good characters and action.A serial killer has taken the City of Los Angeles in its hold. The terror is reaching everyone.

Teen age boys are being stalked, kidnapped, tortured and killed by this monster. The LA County Sheriff's Detective Jim O'Brian is confused by the extreme brutality he is seeing. This killer is not just in the long list of serial killers. This killer didn't just become this way, brutal beyond brutal. It has taken years and years. As there are more and more murders, the more evil and unexplainable they become. The detectives know that they have help out there, the Iron Eagle is out there in the dark, streets of Los Angeles hunting down this brutal killer. But will the Iron Eagle use his own vengeance and in doing so, will there be more bodies?

The author has written a smooth book that takes the reader down the dark streets of LA. Mr. Teel, Jr, has you wanting the killer found and justice doled out. Usually, the victims are young girls and women and I liked that the author changed that and put young men as the victims. I somehow would think that the young male victims would have a better chance of survival against this killer than a young woman. But that's not the case. The cover on these books are absolutely wonderful and enticing.

I would recommend this book to anyone who loves mystery, detective, killers brought to justice and the ones who put their lives out there to do just that.

I was given a complimentary copy of EVIL AND THE DETAILS from the author, Roy A. Teel, JR. for my view of the book. No other compensation took place.

5.0 out of 5 stars I highly recommend it to all, October 22, 2014

Given To Me For An Honest Review

Evil and the Details (The Iron Eagle Book 2) by Roy A. Teel Jr. is the sequel to Rise of the Iron Eagle. While reading this book you will again be on the edge of your seat and keep turning the pages until you reach the end. In this book, there's a serial killer in Los Angeles who's focus is teenage boys. Agents from all over are called in including The Iron Eagle. He is not really accepted by the conventional law enforcement. The Iron Eagle is John Swenson, a profiler by day and by night he seeks out serial killers. This book is very fast paced and is not for the faint of heart. There are some gruesome events described but they are written in a way that is very realistic. This book is a must read for anyone who loves crime thrillers. I gave it 5 stars but it deserves more. I highly recommend it to all. I look forward to more from Roy A. Teel Jr.

Evil and the Details by Roy A Teel, Jr.

Roy Teel continues to amaze me with his ability to thoroughly and completely portray serial killers. I am NOT talking about his character Iron Eagle, here, though The Iron Eagle is a killer, too. I'm talking about the criminals Teel depicts in each of his books.

His attention to detail in the brutal methodology of the killer is exacting. His writing is reminiscent of the best in true crime fiction.
While I love crime fiction of all types, I much prefer the brutal reality of a hardcore story to the comfort of a cozy mystery. I must warn all readers who want the puzzle without the burden of the blood spatter or nasty crime details: Teel is NOT the author for you. He does not pull his punches. He hits his readers full in the face with the brutal reality of the effects and aftermath of violent crime. Even his main protagonist is extremely violent.

The detail given to each crime and the specifics of the murder is not to sensationalize the horrors of murder but to remind his readers that real monsters exist in modern society without the need for fantasy. The monsters Teel describes are far crueler and more terrifying than any I've ever met in the most frightening horror novel sold on the market. Even more terrible is these monsters are based on fact. Teel knows his crime. He works with professionals in the various fields of law enforcement. He wants people to understand and be aware of the realities of the world.

Each book deals not only with a particular serial killer and the pursuit of the Iron Eagle, but with various philosophical questions, as well. Teel raises important issues for readers’ consideration. In addition to the main characters in this book and their joint pursuit of justice for the various criminals within their jurisdictions are their conflicting opinions on the actions of the Iron Eagle. Due to many factors in our current criminal justice system, there is often an inability to convict a truly guilty person who has committed numerous, heinous crimes against many victims. In such a clear-cut case, is vigilante justice ever excusable?

I was given a copy of this book for review purposes. All opinions are my own.

I give Roy A. Teel, Jr.’s second Iron Eagle book yet another fiercely glowing 5 stars!
