    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...

    While I see this referred to as a "procedural," I wouldn't put it in that bucket. To me this falls firmly into "thriller." Yes, it does follow an investigation from the inside, but when I think Procedural I think of a slow series of steps and a close-ish to reality plot. This is not th...

    4.5 Ich lese in letzter Zeit eigentlich nur noch selten Thriller, aber ab und an spricht mich dann doch mal ein Klappentext an, so auch "Todeskäfig". Von Beginn an hat sowohl die Geschichte als auch der Schreibstil der Autorin sehr gut gefallen und ich mochte das Buch nicht wirk...

    4.5 Stars! Whew what a fast past thriller! I flew through this book in about 3ish hours. I also did this as a buddy read with a friend on Instagram and it has been really fun to have someone to talk to about this! Sayer is an FBI Agent. She has had a rough past: her parents died ...

    i read a lot of police procedurals, and i tend to gravitate towards those with strong female protagonists, so it goes without saying that they all tend to blend together. as my fiance' says when i brag about the number of books i've read this year, "you haven't read 140 books; you've r...

    Blog | Bookstagram 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 eve...

    When I first got going on this book I realized it reminded me a lot of the early John Sanford Prey novels. It is gritty, rough, and doesn?t shy away from uncomfortable details. After a while I saw that Ellison Cooper definitely has her own voice and a unique perspective. Caged gets s...

    A finely crafted and disturbing thriller with an incredibly likable main character. Instead of being your run of the mill detective, Sayer is a neuroscientist with the FBI. She holds a special interest in serial killers... more specifically, the brains of serial killers. She's working ...

    This review contains minor spoilers, but nothing revealing major plot points. I was really looking forward to this book because the description made it sound like an absolute page turner. Unfortunately, it didn't quite live up to the hype for me. First, the positives. It is defi...

    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:) ...

    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 psych...

    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 h...

    Why I'm a fan of serial killer novels I'm not really sure, but this debut was a stunner! FBI agent, Sayer is a neuroscientist studying killers' brains to determine the chemical makeup and how it may differ from "normal" brains. But when a local politician's daughter is discovered dead ...

    I was doing well, enjoying ?Caged? and guessing along with the agents who the killer might be and what could be done to save the next potential victim. Unfortunately, the one thing I hoped wouldn?t happen, happened. The story is very good, and the cast of characters have enou...

    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. Caged follows a Neuroscientist with the FBI named Sayer Altair as she embarks on a journey to finding the serial killer who had booby-trapped ...

    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 FB...
