Roy A. Teel has done it yet again. In his latest crime thriller, Rome is Burning, he has created terror so horrifying and real that many reviewers have docked him in reviews simply because he's scared them so badly. He's created a situation that could happen, could very well BE happening, right now.
Rome is Burning again features the Iron Eagle, but not in his usual role. I’m not going to tell you much more than that. I don’t want to give anything away, especially for those of you who haven’t re

The intensity continues in book three. By this point I have really grown close to Jim, Steve, and John. Each one is a tough ass in his own way but I like this as they handle and look at each case from a different angle.

However in this book the Iron Eagle took a little step back and was not the main focus. Yet, I liked getting to see his human side. Well if you the Iron Eagle has two different sides. They both fight for the same thing...deliverance to the evil ones. I think in this book that the

“Rome is Burning” was published in 2014 and was written by Roy A. Teel Jr. Mr. Teel has published six novels, with this being the third in his “Iron Eagle” series.

I obtained a galley of this novel for review through https://www.netgalley.com. I would categorize this Fiction Thriller novel as ‘R’ as there is Mature Language, Mature Situations and Violence. The novel is written in the third person and is set in contemporary Los Angeles, California. The primary characters are FBI agent John Swenso

Well readers, when I first started Roy's book series way back with The Rise of the Iron Eagle, I most certainly expected to roll through them faster than lightning. But then life happened. My mother has read up through book six and here I am still on book three. Or rather, having just finished book three. If I were to sum up this book (or any of Roy's books really) in one word it would be INTENSE.

Rome is Burning reunites us with FBI Special Agent John Swenson and Homicide Detective Jim O'Brian a

Shelves: first-reads
Overall, Rome is Burning is a thriller that keeps you reading. There were two things, however, that affected (i.e., lowered) my rating. First, the layout of the book's pages make it difficult to read. Specifically, long sections of dialogue involving multiple characters are combined in a single paragraph, lasting half a page or more, making it difficult to read. Starting a new paragraph when a new character speaks would have made it much easier for the eye to follow. Second, I'm used to a certai ...more
