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 Book Viral

Jake 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.
