Review of Rise of the Iron Eagle by Roy A Teel

Rise of the Iron Eagle
Roy A. Teel

How many murders take place in this novel? Let me count them. Never mind. This is the first
book of a series. By the time Roy Teel has finished the series maybe he won’t even know.
Without reading the other books in the series I’m suggesting this is the book where the reader
should start. About halfway into the novel you know who the Iron Eagle is. The question you
wind up asking yourself is do you want the killer to get caught? It seems inevitable that he will,
especially since there’s been an innocent person or two killed among the bad guys and the Iron
Eagle lets no bad deed go unpunished. I won’t plant a spoiler, you’ll have to read the book.
The characters are well drawn - cops, FBI agents, doctors, school and hospital administrators
(is there an agenda here?), LA Latinos who love the police, and cops’ wives who walk on the
wild side. Everything’s been thrown into the gumbo - serial killers, the homeless, child predators,
and ménage a trois among the good guys and their gals.
LA has no shortage of the seedy and unseemly and this book takes full advantage of it. The
author knows his turf.

You won’t fall asleep counting the killings. Well done, Roy Teel.
