AMERICAN PREDATOR – Maureen Callahan (out now!)
Check back for the #allthebookreviews thoughts here.
My Thoughts: 5/5 stars!
So I want to keep this short and sweet. With true crime it can always be hit or miss for some readers. There are some that read like fiction in their flow and others that feel like more of a history textbook in that its nothing but dry facts. AMERICAN PREDATOR by Maureen Callahan was a surprisingly fast read!
I’ll admit, I didn’t know too much about Israel Keyes before picking this up. So I was anxious to start it and learn more about his crimes and how they eventually caught him. I liked the way that Callahan approached this one. She told the story backwards – we start with Keyes’ final victim and we work our way back through his reign of terror. This as pieced together from hours of FBI interrogations and facts from throughout the case as it was built. I would highly recommend this one to any true crime fans out there and to those that haven’t heard of Israel Keyes. You’ll definitely learn a lot!
