Many thanks to Minotaur Books for providing my free copy of CAGED by Ellison Cooper - all opinions are my own.
This is one creepy, chilling, twisted thriller! A gruesome crime scene is discovered as a young woman is found starved to death and locked in a cage. FBI agent and neuroscientist Sayer Altair gets called in to lead the investigation. This is a horrendous case and Altair has seen her fair share of evil; she conducts research on the brains of serial killers, however this case is next level ...more
Wow! Wow! Ummmm.... yeah.... Wow! Caged was a pulse pounding, edge of your seat, who the hell done it, I didn’t see that coming thriller! It kept me guessing the entire read. It has all the mix needed for a good read: a strong female FBI agent with a twisty past, a sick twisted psychopath killer running wild, as well as a fun mix of other characters to keep you reading and keep you entertained. 5 stars for this one! Loved it!❤ ...more
I crave a good book that unfolds like a movie. “Caged” opens with the police entering a house they’d already checked out the week before and, after a shocking setback, discovering a dead body suspended in a cage in the domicile of a demented serial killer. Great premise. Enter FBI Agent Sayer Altair, a neuroscientist who studies serial killers’ brains – how they think, why they do the horrific things they do. It’s the perfect set up for a summer read and it doesn’t disappoint. The tick-tock pace ...more
Ellison Cooper's Caged is a well written police driven thriller with a mix of a strong female detective.
What I liked about Caged? I really liked how Sayer our main female detective had a strong background in Science. Sayer studies serial killers' brains and the general makeup of how it may appear more or less "normal"then what you would see in a non serial killer's brain. This was something I had never seen before in a crime/police procedural novel.
The story takes off with two police officers ...more

Okay, here’s my issue: I really over-hyped myself for this one.
I heard “police procedural” and “FBI agent” and “serial killer” and just lost my ever-loving crime fiction booknerd mind, expecting to fall rapidly in love with this; for it to be everything I need a book with those descriptors to be. I consciously recognized that I was doing it, in the moment, and I made a decision to allow myself to be hyped for this. Which in any other circumstance, would have been against my bet ...more
Despite the brutal content, Caged is ultimately a forgettable book for me.
I expected psychological suspense, based on the description, but this book is a straight forward police procedural. Sayer, the lead character, is a neuroscientist, yet her part is mostly interchangeable with any cop character. The brain science touched on regarding the specific serial murder case is minimal. The research Sayer is privately working on reads like it was lifted off a pop culture social science book. In fact, ...more
This was really different. A new twist to a detective thriller with a “bad guy” I didn’t guess after assuming the whole time I had it figured out early on. This kind of eludes to another book & I’m hoping that is so.
Thanks to Minotaur for this early copy:)
