Let me start off by saying that I’m not a huge fan of novels that follow Detectives and the likes, but #Caged May have changed that for me.

Sayer Altair is with the FBI and a neuroscientist that has been doing a study of serial killers or more specifically their brains and trying to find anomalies that would distinguish them from normal human brains.
When two patrol officers get a call to an abandoned residence to check out a call to 911 from young girl they find the home closed up tight. Neighbors say they haven’t seen anyone comi ...more
