    American Predator is the story of Alaskan serial killer Israel Keyes, his crimes and how he was captured.I 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 killers mass 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 mistakes.I received a free copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.In 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 p...

    American Predator is by far one of the best true crime books I ve read It has a fascinating format it starts with Israel Keyes final victim and works backward It sounds like this could get sloppy, but Maureen Callahan weaves it together so well I sometimes have trouble reading true crime because of how dry...

    True crime has been a guilty pleasure of mine for at least 30 years I remember working in a public library and happily discovering the 364.1523 shelves where even today I still browse, although TBH public library budgets often prevent a lot of trashy ephemeral reading material from making it to the shelves These days, true crime has become a pop culture THING, and there s no shortage of readily available books, movies, and podcasts dedicated to what used to be very much a niche market I was very happy to receive an ARC of American Predator by Maureen Callahan from Penguin Group Viking and NetGalley in exchange for this honest review.The blurb for this book says most of us have never heard of Israel Keyes But he is one of the most ambitious, meticulous serial killers of modern time Possibly coincidence, but I felt like I was WAY familiar with the crimes this unspeakably evil man committed than I might like, because very recently I had listened to two podcasts covering Keyes and his exploits Generation Why and Crime Junkie I totally recommend Crime Junkie Host Ashley Flowers does actual research, has an excellent presentation style, and adds relevant material including photos on her website ...

    True crime is a topic that has always interested me What goes on in someone s mind that causes them to perform such brutal crimes American Predator was exactly the book for me and I found myself wondering how is it that I have never heard of the serial killer Israel Keyes Israel Keyes a seemingly normal guy living in anchorage Alaska who was a construction worker and no one suspected him being pure evil How did this man get away with murder well let me explain This man would fly to a city rent a car and drive thousands of miles to bury his kill kits this is what set him apart from other killers He did a ton of advance planning His kill kits included weapons, duct tape, cable ties gloves and so much When he buries these kill kits sometimes he wouldn t return for them for years, he would dig them up and have his way with whomever What scares me is that most of his victims will never be found due to Israel never leaving evidence The book begins with the disappearance of Samantha from a coffee kiosk My heart was breaking for her father who told the police she would never just take off This man was a creepy mastermind wit...

    4.5 starsBundy and Bianchi really can t hold a candle to this one.American Predator looks into the crimes of a somewhat unknown modern day serial killer named Israel Keyes The author draws on interviews and legal recordings to paint a picture of a true sociopath While there is not the drawn out background and legalese type writing that authors like Ann Rule are known for, I give kudos to author Maureen Callahan for writing an honest narrative with the information she was given and letting us know what info she was not given, which I find very interesting I remember hearing about Israel Keyes after his death There seemed to be have been several people in my small mountain town who knew him or remembered some creepy dude who fit the description Was it really him Who knows It wouldn t surprise me if he was involved in the deaths of a mom and daughter on a hiking trail in the Cascades, nor would it surprise me if...

    I devoured this book in one disturbing sitting The writing is gripping and captivating, drawing me in from the author s note at the beginning of the book I don t read a lot of true crime, but I grew up watching Unsolved Mysteries, CSI, and Criminal Minds, so when my friend Jess Fiction No Chaser screamed to me about this one, I had to read it myself The subject of this book was unlike anything the FBI had ever encountered He was a new kind of monster, likely responsible for the greatest string of unsolved disappearances and murders in modern history And you have probably never heard of him At the risk of sounding morbid, I know a lot about serial killers and was surprised that I had never heard of this guy The book is very well researched and is based on hundreds of hours of interviews with the investigators involved I don t read a lot of true crime so I am not sure if this is typical of the genre, but American Predator reads like an episode of Criminal Minds it is an incredibly eng...

    How can a serial killer operate for years without law enforcement tracking him down If you re Israel Keyes, you plan your murders well in advance You bury murder kits around the country to use when you finally decide it s time You fly to one location and then drive out of state to kill You take cruises to throw police off the scent This is probably the best true crime book I ve read since I ll Be Gone in the Dark Author journalist Maureen Callahan ...

    One of the best true crime novels I ve ever read Israel Keyes is an absolute mad man and yet he s sane His completely random and unrelated acts of evil are incredibly terrifying and had me sleeping with the lights on while reading This is ri...

    This book does nothing but show how a serial killer is glorified in what he did, by highlighting his crimes and letting us know how his sick mind worked The book is confusing from the start as it begins at the end Then the author digs up old transcripts with the killer s own words and demonstrates how he manipulated law enforcement over and over again It also shines a light on the ineptness of the FBI and law enforcement in handling cases like these because some of the individuals want the glory for handling the case and perhaps being the one to solve it The I read, the angrier I became at myself that I was reading about this worthless human being whose sorry life is documented and showcased in a book He got just what he wanted attention and his 15 minutes of fame This book was solidly annoying My cousin was killed by serial killer Joseph Paul Franklin, who is suspected of at least 13 killings Maybe this has jaded my ability to be objective in my...
