Start your review of Androcide (INTEL 1 #5)
Their mutilated bodies were left on display. Were they a warning? A statement of revenge? Or were they just the tip of the iceberg or something far bigger than the streets of New York? A serial killer is running loose and they are making a statement. Who is “Gone?” What does she know about these killings? Does she have inside information? The Eunich Maker is leaving a bloody path of death on display and law enforcement needs all the help they can get, will they heed Gone’s words?

Meanwhile, on th
Helen Power
A serial killer targetting men is on the loose, leaving their mutilated bodies on display for women to find.  Meanwhile, Intel 1, a top-secret government agency, is tracking down the elusive Nemesis in Tehran... But how are these two stories connected?

This novel isn't just a mystery. Just like the Goodreads blurb says: It's an espionage thriller, a bio-thriller, political satire, and a police procedural.

This book has a bit of everything, it's a crazy whodunnit, a story of international intrigue and the manipulation of science that can bring apocalyptic ruin to humankind.

I don't recall reading a book with a serial killer whose sole purpose is taking out just men. This is the fifth book in the INTEL 1 series, but yet it wasn't hard to get to know the characters, so reading this as standalone was fine. The characters and world building are well developed. INTEL 1 is a covert government agency spec

Cide- Latin origin suffix meaning killer, or the act of killing

Erec Stebbins begins his latest in the Intel 1 series with a rather gruesome murder in New York City. The victim, a known serial rapist, appears to be brutally beaten with what appears to be bruises all over his body and most noticeably his private parts have been removed. The detective on the scene is Tyrell Sacker along with two junior detectives that Sacker is training. It isn

Publisher’s Description: Detectives link gruesome murders to the Eunuch Maker, a serial killer targeting men. The stakes soon escalate to global proportions.

Review: This started out pretty good as the story line is split and the commonality hard to determine. And then it goes to pure shjt.

I read Androcide at the request of the author, Erec Stebbins. It’s book #5 of his Intel 1 Series.
It is brilliant, philosophical, well thought out, and well-written. It will take you from biomedical terror to the politics of big city law enforcement, and from covert ops in Iran to the White House, and on to the ugliness of our presidential elections. Then there is a serial killer who insists he is only doing experiments.

The story opens when Jack Reaper, a convicted rapist just released from pris
This fifth book in the Intel 1 Series by Erec Stebbins once again took its Intel 1 Force's characters on a wild and epic adventure on two seemingly unrelated fronts. The first being the stopping of a virus created to wipe out all the men on the face of the earth. The second the continuing hunt for the final finger of the Bilderburg global dominating entity. This book introduced a new character into the mix, PI Grace Gone who along with NYPD Detective Tyrell worked to stop the madman who displaye ...more

Great writing, great characters, and a compelling story

Seemed like a really long time between that awesome set of Intel 1 books. This one - #5 - was very much appreciated. If you haven’t read the first four, get them and read them as soon as possible, before opening up this one.
Two very different storylines – an Intel 1 operation in Tehran, and a New York Police hunt for a serial killer – and you wonder where this is going, and then Erec Stebbins blends them into an explosive story and lights th

I was pleasantly surprised by this book, this is my first book from the Author. I felt like I was listening to a David Baldacci book. The twists were really well done and well thought out. The story starts as two separate stories, it unclear until about midway, what connects the two. But once they do connect, light bulbs just go off. Really like how the Author did that, one side was spy, the other side was cop/PI. I loved the character Grace, she has a disability. Well, most of the characters do ...more

This was a GoodReads giveaway win. I won this book a few months ago. Decided to read part 1 first, to get some background. Then decided to just jump to my giveaway win to be more timely with reading books I have won. I don't think I missed too much by jumping ahead, but I will now go back and read #2-4 next.

I liked this story, but I had an issue with the some of the lead female roles, particularly the female interactions with the Iranians. Just the strong pro-male culture of the Iranians came ac

A known serial rapist is beat and his junk is removed. Tyrell Sacker along with two junior detectives that he is training are in charge of the case. But soon a another victim shows up and Sacker has no leads. In pops Private Investigator Grace Gone. She has a way of seeing clues others miss. With her help Sacker hunts down a murderer. it was a ok story, didn't really suck me in.

I have only read one of Erec Stebbins books before, "The Ragnarok Conspiracy", the first in the "Intel 1" series; I got books 1 to 4 on a free offer. I left a review because I loved the book but was worried about reading further because, you know, sequels 'n all that. Recently the author contacted me and offered me a copy of his latest book "China Girl" (the sixth of the "Intel 1" series) if I would be willing to read it and leave an honest review. I pointed out my experience and concerns with h ...more
