Evil and the Details by Roy A Teel Jr
In Evil and the Details, John Swenson lives a double life as an FBI agent and the serial killer known as The Eagle. The Eagle hunts down horrible criminals, tortures them, and makes sure to leave evidence of their evils for the FBI to find.
This book has realistic characters, showing how one would think FBI agents would actually act in these scenarios. The story switches views between some of the agents, mainly going between John and Steve. My only complaint is that the dialogue feels really rushed. Usually, I have been taught to make a new paragraph every time the person who is speaking changes, and that doesn't happen in this book. I also do have to warn that they are very graphic with the torture, and will explain what is happening as much as an excited child would describe their new favorite toy. It's graphic. Really graphic.
However, dialogue and brutality aside, the book is a really good read. I personally loved the psychology behind the book. The author very accurately portrays how John's character actually would act if in real life. If you can stomach gruesome things, then you are good to go.
