Crime Fiction and Psychological Thrillers
“Cary Allen Stone is a brilliant writer of psychological thrillers and murder mysteries. He writes with a keen eye for detail–the graphic violence is chillingly realistic. He delivers a taut, darkly introspective, cunning and well-executed plot by leaning towards the fallible side of his characters. He understands the criminal mind avoiding the stereotypes that dominate crime thrillers. There is a good balance of chemistry and conflict, good and evil that fans will find enthralling. His characters become embedded in our psyches and the pace of his unraveling of his thriller is a ride not easily forgotten. Cary Allen Stone is an important name to watch. This is one superb crime writer!”

My backstory is, I spent almost forty years inside the cockpits of corporate jets and airlines and because of it I acquired a unique perspective of life. I was fortunate in 1992 to fly Sir Ridley Scott on a location scout in the islands. We talked about writing and building an image inside the words. He was quite a mentor.
Before all of that, I graduated from high school with a JD, juvenile delinquent, and from college with a Bachelor of Arts. I was lucky to be involved in some feature films in LA and Indie films in Phoenix. I got to play the bad guy. I have done voice-over, radio commercials, and standup comedy magic. I represented the USA alongside nine other countries in the Night of Magic in Bogota, Colombia performing before dignitaries, ambassadors and their families.
For my “Stealing Atlanta,” I received the endorsements of Clive Cussler and Tim Dorsey. My first published work was a true crime story titled, “Through a Mother’s Eyes.” It was a case study of parents who murder their children. I had a friend who murdered her six-year-old son and I did a case study of the tragedy. Respected expert, Dr. Philip Resnik, said it was the best layman’s book on the matter of “filicide.” The book has a worldwide reach, and is intended to prevent another tragedy. Book Bub did a promotion on it and 14,976 books went out in a day.
I’m a proud member of the oldest women’s writers club in the country, the Phoenix Writer’s Club, begun by women reporters in the 1920s. I also know what the CocaCola recipe is.
His series The Jake Roberts Novels has been well received by Amazon Hall of Fame Top 10 Reviewers in crime fiction and psychological thrillers from whom he receives 5–Star reviews. Action adventure author Clive Cussler and South Florida author Tim Dorsey endorsed Stealing Atlanta, his cybercrime thriller. His first published work, Through a Mother’s Eyes a true crime story, was a case study of “filicide” the parental murder of children. His subject was a friend of his who murdered her six-year-old son. The research took four years to complete, which included time spent in the correctional facility where Julie was incarcerated. Through a Mother’s Eyes has a worldwide reach. Cary’s hopes are that the story will help to prevent future tragedies from happening and to date he has received several correspondences of success.
5–STARS Entire Series Became Personal Favorites for This Reader...

begins his fourth explosive novel by honing in on the plight of soldiers who
come home from war... Many in the United States are quick to point out
atrocious behavior in other countries and cry out for action--starting by
sending American troops into enemy territory! War is profitable--it is easy to
declare action be taken...But America does not take care of those whose lives
they've destroyed by sending them into battle... Eric Sutherland was just one
of those soldiers who had come home and finally cried out for help in the only
way he felt could make his point... he covered his body with explosives and
headed for an airport...
Jake were both involved in the attempt to set off a bomb at the airport. Fred
Campbell, a good friend of Jake's had been hurt, being the first man trying to
stop Sutherland... Then Jake went into action... using his uncanny intelligence
and guts to stop the situation...But that was just a test trial for what was
yet to come...
and Jake were both busy with their respective jobs. Jake was consulting on a
movie and Caitland was planning a party for all of her clients...
another individual was studying and becoming an expert in forensics psychology
and was already a well known consultant in this important field. The
consultant's greatest desire was to get to know, to understand them, including
our Series' beautiful Lori, and not just from textbooks. She received an
opportunity to visit and study...and meet... some of the most dangerous of
these serial killers... After she met one in particular, she came back home and
started planning for her first. Knowing Lori was still in jail, of course,
Jake's death would be an important addition to her...list... She had learned so
much...and her choice of murder would change based upon the various methods
she'd learned directly from the "horses' mouths" you could say...
mentioned earlier, the emphasis of the series is Jake Roberts on the
Hunt...Readers know this last killer and read of the devastating acts she
performs. By this point in the book I was expecting the ending, still hoping it
would not be what happens... Is it really the end of the series?
there is no better way to express my highest recommendation for a book(s) than
to wish that there will be a continuation of the characters I've come to know.
Once in a while, an author speaks out on issues that are important to me and
they become a new Favorite Author... Cary Allen Stone has struck that chord for
me. I'm always amazed that I have little if any knowledge of the authors or
story lines for books I agree to review and yet, I continue to find such gems!
And these four books have become my first personal favorites for 2016!
