Editorial Reviews

5–Stars “AFTER THE GOODE – A Jake Roberts Novel” By Charles Ashbacher, Hall of Fame, Top 500 Reviewervine voice

The complexity is tightly woven and intertwined, for friendships are formed that
are destined to be destroyed. Jake proves his courage when he goes unarmed into
the fortress home of one of the most powerful crime bosses in Phoenix, although
he is commended for succeeding where others had failed before him. There
is a tragic ending in the classical and best sense of the word in dramatic
stories, even though it is tragic, it is probably the best possible outcome
given the situation. The climactic scene seems obvious a few pages before it
happens and you find yourself knowing the likely outcome yet you wish that some
unusual event occurs to prevent it. This is a solid crime story; Jake Roberts
is a superb detective willing to do whatever it takes to solve a case, even if
he risks his life. Furthermore, his descriptions of the anguish and nightmares
that he continues to experience over having to shoot and kill someone resonate
in your mind.
