Payne and Bell recognized Keyes threat as the mind control of an experienced criminal Payne had learned it at uantico and heard variations in countless confessions You ll regret it I ll hurt you Neither is I ll kill you and that gives a victim hope The best criminals always leave that window open because it makes manipulating and controlling someone so much easier And victims often believe fatally that they ll be let go You are looking in the eyes of a stone cold killerIsrael Keyes is certainly the most terrifying serial killer that you have never heard of There are a lot of reasons why he has flown under the radar of the general public and most true crime fans One is the FBI never extracted a full confession from him Two the police screw up so many things regarding Keyes while keeping him in custody and while processing his crimes that no one is crowing about the Big Bad Monster that has been apprehended Through incompetance he is allowed to commit suicide before his victims can all be identified Jeffrey Epsteinesue He Keyes covered them even in death he said his victims belonged to him Keyes may have never revealed all of his victims but with adeuate handling he certainly would have most likely revealed than what will ever be known Not all psychopaths are serial killers but all serial killers are psychopaths I can get lost down a long and winding rabbit hole discussing all the functioning psychopaths among us Some of you are married to them or have been married to them They make really successful ruthless businessmen lawyers and bankers They focus well on objectives and morality is something they find to be a laughable concept though on the surface they appear to be pillars of the community Keyes is a meticulous killer and operates without detection for fourteen years He maintains a family unit which is unusual He is self described as two people One is the man everyone expects him to be and the other takes pleasure in torturing raping and killing people This story starts at the end because that is where Keyes wants to begin He is willing to talk about the one that tripped him up and dangle the possibility of others As the story unfolds I keep thinking to myself that he makes some fundamental errors that are unlike him Has he let the need the desire to kill build up too much that it makes him break his own rules He certainly doesn t strike me as the typical serial killer who is bored at not being caught and finally wants to bask in the limelight of his notoriety like for instance the BTK Killer Dennis Rader Keyes even makes a point of wanting things kept out of the press for fear that his daughter will learn that her father is a monster Keyes lives in Alaska and is always careful to drive down to the lower 48 to relieve his need to kill The don t shit where you live concept He leaves kill kits buried all over the country that consist of cash body disposal items and weapons I m sure some of those are still out there awaiting a man who will never return Keyes s parents are both religious nutters He even describes them as cult shoppers who moved all over the country trying to find that new sect of religion that better fit their own beliefs This criss crossing of the country may be why Keyes feels so comfortable travelling through multiple states looking for the perfect victims When his mother is uestioned for information she tells the authorities Well Heidi said if God wants that girl to be found she ll be found sigh I can feel my whole body tensing when they finally pull over Israel Keyes in Texas for a routine traffic violation but really they have an inkling that he is a man most wanted in Alaska The description of the scene is so nerve wracking that I am muttering to myself Don t let him go Find a way to arrest him They don t want to give a judge any excuse to let this guy walk Maureen Callahan does an excellent job of making me forget that I know what I know in the moment I m one of those readers though who can read about the assassination of Lincoln and still be rooting for someone anyone to step in the way of Booth s unalterable bullet Alas Lincoln always dies and I will always still feel his passing acutely So why does Keyes do it Why not is his answerThe frustrating part of the book and for the writer is all the unanswered uestions to which we will probably never know the answers His interrogation is handled with a high degree of ineptitude and he freuently makes his uestioners look stupid Keyes is uniue and doesn t care about credited kills unlike most other serial killers who brag about their deeds This makes it much harder to deal with him or negotiate with him He keeps control He is the grand manipulator and constantly turns the tables on those trying to solicit any information from him All he is concerned about is when they will execute him When they can t do that right he controls that as wellThis is a fascinating look into the criminal justice system and the inherent issues that need to be resolved It is truly amazing that the most dangerous criminals with any degree of intelligence are ever caughtIf you wish to see of my most recent book

Maureen Callahan ½ 5 Summary Free download American Predator The Hunt for the Most Meticulous Serial Killer of the 21st Century 105 Keyes in 2012 she was captivated by how a killer of this magnitude could go undetected by law enforcement for over a decade And so began a project that consumed her for the next several years uncovering the true story behind how the FBI ultimately caught Israel Keyes and trying to understand what it means for a killer like Keyes to exist A killer who left a path of monstrous randomly committed crimes in his wake many of which remain unsolved to this dayAmerican Predator is the ambitious culmination of years of interviews with key figures in law enforcement and in Keyes's life and research uncovered from classified FBI files Callahan takes us on a journey into the chilling nightmarish mind of a relentless killer and to the limitations of traditional law enforceme. 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
