The Judas Game by Ethan CrossWhen a correctional officer climbs to the top of his watchtower and opens fire on the inmates and guards, federal investigator Marcus Williams and serial killer Francis Ackerman Jr. must join forces again to unearth the truth behind the incident. What they find is a serial killer using the prison as his hunting grounds. But the Judas Killer's ambitions don't end with a few murders. He wants to go down in history and has no reason left to live.
With Ackerman undercover among the inmates and Marcus tracking down the mastermind on the outside, the team must learn the identity of the Judas Killer and stop a full-scale uprising that he's orchestrated. But the more they learn about what's happening at the prison and why the more enemies they must face. From inside the overrun facility, Marcus and Ackerman must save the hostages and stop an elaborate escape attempt while trying to determine how a rival corporation, the leader of one of the world's most dangerous criminal organizations, and an inmate with no identity only known as Demon fit into the Judas Killer's plans.

My Review:
When a good guy needs to team up with a serial killer to find answers, Then I know that I am in for an edge of my seat read. The description drew me in. How bad a guy could the bad guy be? Obviously very bad if we need the mind of another criminal. Especially if we need the contacts of a bad guy. Prisons are very protected and the thought that an officer started shooting away leads me to believe that the prison is involved. However as these two unlikely "detectives" work together I was tossed back and forth between who was guilty. This is an edge of your seat read. I was mad when my hubby kept trying to interrupt me while I was reading. It really reminded me of a crime thriller tv-show. As a fan of Stephen King I loved the author's way of describing the bloody scenes. I liked this book a lot, and will be on my have to read author list. The end also left me wanting for more from this author. I am giving this book a 5/5. I was given a copy, all opinions are my own.
