American Predator is the story of Alaskan serial killer Israel Keyes his crimes and how he was capturedI was chatting with a friend when the subject of what I was currently reading came up I mentioned this book and I began thinking about why I m always drawn to true crime specifically serial killersmass murderers I certainly don t admire them nor do I particularly care why they do what they do Then I realized that I like to see how they inevitably slip up what is the tiny mistake they make that lands them in prison American Predator is one of those books that spotlights just such a mistake In fact it was a whole baker s dozen of mistakesI received a free copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest reviewIn late 2012 writer Maureen Callahan penned an article for the NY Post about a recently deceased killer who for years managed to fly under the radar of authorities travelling across the United States taking the lives of complete strangers Shortly after the story s publication Maureen felt there was a deeper story that needed to be told After years of investigative research Callahan produces a comprehensive look at Israel KeyesThe book begins with what would be the downfall of Keyes the kidnapping of Samantha Koenig a young woman in Anchorage Alaska What follows is an unbelievable series of errors on the part of Keyes that somehow goes undetected by authorities it was almost like Keyes was hoping to be caught Once in police custody following a traffic stop in Texas a series of interrogations and negotiations with Keyes will uncover his web of death cast over the entirety of the United StatesPieced together through hundreds of hours of interviews with those who worked the case as well as those close to Keyes himself author Maureen Callahan tells the story of a meticulous murderer who somehow managed to go undetected for years As for how Keyes is portrayed he comes off as a man doing an impression of a serial killer I don t mean to make light of the seriousness of his crimes but he comes across as such a loser He sits there and uotes lines from Hannibal Lecter movies idolises Ted Bundy and rubs himself through his pants while giving cryptic clues to a team of investigators desperate to uncover his many murders I m not saying I d prefer some sort of honorable slaughterer because such a thing doesn t exist it just seems fascinating to me how he managed to be so successful while coming off as such a total amateurSubject s character aside I thought Callahan did a great job producing a compelling account of a modern day murderer and his ability to operate so smoothly in a post 911 world American Predator is a solid read that should satisfy true crime aficionados looking for insight into a relatively unknown subjectExpected release date July 2 2019

Read This BookLiterally my face upon completionYou want to feel this way whilst reading a true crime don t you I mean don t youuite honestly this is by far one of the most disturbing books that I have ever read American Predator is a nonfiction account of the capture and subseuent investigation of serial killer Israel Keyes Fortunately for the reader this is much than a droll portrayal of one monster s heinous crimes Callahan creates a compelling recounting of the investigation of his case beginning with his final kill and going backward through timeI thought this was a clever formatting choice by the author It made the story seem like you were part of the investigation versus starting at the beginning of his life and moving forward that wayReading about Israel was completely disturbing for me Here was a man a contemporary of mine born in the same year and to walk through his crimes was shocking The fact that he traveled extensively in the state where I was living at the time was the icing on the cakeHis level of arrogance yet ability to plan and to leave no evidence was bone chilling He used his knowledge of surveillance and technology to constantly fly under the radar Making this even disturbing was the seemingly random selection of his victims There s so much but I don t want to give anything awayIn short read this book
