About the Book    About the Author

It's been a bad week for homicide detective Jake Roberts. In a late night firefight, Jake kills a shooter in a ski mask firing an AR-15. Jake is wounded. The mask is removed and the shooter is a sixteen-year old girl. Per precinct policy, Jake is required to see the division’s shrink, Dr. Thaddeus Abrams. Leaving Abram’s office abruptly, he passes stunning flight attendant Lori Powers in the outer office. Later that night, Dr. Abrams is murdered. Jake’s investigation begins with questioning Abram’s patients including Lori. During her questioning, he finds he is attracted to her. Not long after, Jake begins seeing Lori, and they fall in love. Jake and FBI profiler Mika Scott link Abrams’ death to a rash of serial killings. The cold trail they’re on ignites into flames when Jake realizes who the killer is. Will Jake get there in time to stop her from fleeing her last murder?

Editorial Reviews

5–Stars “AFTER THE EVIL – A Jake Roberts Novel” By Mary Wilson

falls in love with flight attendant Lori Powers. Lori can’t silence the voices
and her daughter Emily cries out from the grave. A gratifyingly graphic murder
mystery with real depth, Stone writes with a keen eye for detail whilst
judiciously avoiding the many trite stereotypes that dominate popular crime
thrillers. It’s a taut, compelling read and darkly introspective as Stone
delivers a cunning and well executed plot, the twists served on the button as
he skillfully penetrates the enigma of lives irrevocably tinged by the detritus
of evil. As a simply engaging thriller it has all the elements readers expect
from the best in genre, but by leaning towards the fallible side of his
characters he imbues them with a real world presence, demonstrating diversity
in thought and execution that fans of the genre will find enthralling. It’s
certainly gripping and by blurring the lines of justice he undoubtedly sows the
seeds for some serious reflection, in what proves to be a puzzle worthy of the
most demanding armchair sleuths.
