Editorial Reviews

5–Stars “MIND OVER MURDER – A Jake Roberts
Novel” By Veritas Vincit “Bill”

Non-Stop Suspense and Psychological
Thrills! I wasn't sure how Stone was going to
follow up the first Jake Roberts novel, particularly when it was such a strong
start, but between Lori Powers and this increasingly charming and addictive
protagonist, Mind Over Murder more than delivered. There was a certain element
of Hannibal Lector meets Sherlock feel to the interactions between characters;
everyone wants something, and everyone thinks they are smarter than everyone
else. It's amusing and attention holding, but also makes for extremely intense
moments of literary brilliance. I think Stone does this best with Lori Powers,
who is like an endless onion of unpredictability; every layer you peel back is
a new adventure and challenge. Working one's way into the mind of a serial
killer is a trying obstacle for many writers, but doing it so well, and
doubling the stakes by shaping the plot around a second murderer showed
ambition and chutzpah of a much more experienced author. I had a feeling this
second book was going to stumble, as so many do, but Stone went above and
beyond my expectations and pushed the boundaries of Jake in shocking ways. I
can't imagine how he'll handle the next installment. Be prepared for a truly
jaw-dropping ending!
