5-STARS "AFTER THE EVIL - A Jake Roberts Novel"by DAVID C. FRIDDLE, SR
Having spent nearly twenty years in law enforcement this novel is so very close to real life that it is unsettling. This was a page-turner and the action spell binding. I highly recommend this book for an evening of intrigue.

Jake is forced to return to work early due to a particularly brutal serial killer. The killer is targeting men who have abused women, or particularly children. The victims are sedated, stabbed and then castrated. Their names are left on the wall, written in blood.
Dr. Abrams is murdered on the night that Jake had seen him in his office.
Paired with FBI Agent and Profiler, Mika Scott, who’s also Jake’s former lover, Jake, Mika & Jake’s friend and partner, Harmon, follow a trail that eventually lead them nowhere. During the investigation, Jake meets the woman of his dreams. Along with Jake, flight attendant, Lori Powers, had also been a patient of Dr. Abrams.
Jake is becoming obsessed with Lori, leading to some lost clues and frustration on the parts of Mike and Harmon.
And the killer is closer than any of them realize .........
The book is very descriptive in its graphic detailed acts of violence. There are lots of twists and turns, even though you learn early on the identity of the killer. The characters are so believable and as the story is told by each one in turn, the reader is privy to their innermost thoughts and feelings. The plot is incredibly good and well thought out.
This is the first in a series, and I can't wait to see what the author has in store for Jake Robert's future.
My thanks to the author who provided a digital copy in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.
Having started the Jake Roberts Novels with the Book 5, it is with great interest to return to Book 1 – AFTER THE EVIL – to see how well Vary develops his main lead male. So much of the success of a book relies on character development and the interaction between characters, especially in a series of novels. Cary sets the tone from the opening paragraphs: ‘After she placed the duct tape over his mouth, it became very difficult to make out some of his words. “No” was muffled, but reasonably understandable. “Don’t” didn’t sound quite right, but she got the idea. She mimicked his muted pleas pretending to feel his fear and pain. It was the end of Father Anthony Moralli. He began his last day on earth on an airliner. His destination was a resort-gambling oasis, which coincidently included a well-stocked pond of young females. He was on what he liked to call a “personal pilgrimage.” The expedition had nothing to do with religion. Anthony simply wanted to, no needed to, get laid. To accomplish the task, it required leaving the confines of his parish to maintain the façade of his vocation. Father Anthony loved the whole religion thing—the ceremonies, hearing confessions, and especially saving lost souls. He planned to start saving his soul right after saving all of the others. After years of religious studies and training, he concluded it was beyond his comprehension to truly understand God, so he simply preached the commandments, and left the rest to God. What Anthony really understood were the basic physical needs of a man. He struggled with his vow of celibacy, finding it to be in direct conflict with his deep and firm conviction, that sex was a gift from God. To abstain, he believed, was a slap to the Creator’s face. The “Love thy neighbor” commandment was his favorite, and he took every opportunity to apply it to his life. Of course, that did not include molesting boys like some of his classmates in the seminary. He boarded the flight sans white collar, and slumped into his assigned seat by the window, in the emergency exit aisle.’
For those of us who have been following Jake through Cary’s masterful mind and hands at molding action thrillers it is difficult to outguess what will happen to Jake this episode. The synopsis merely gives a hint: ` Dr. Thaddeus Abrams is found murdered. The kill is the work of a prolific serial killer and FBI profiler Mika Scott arrives to lead the investigation at the Atlanta PD where she was once Detective Jake Roberts' ex-partner and lover. Jake's in a steamy love affair with flight attendant Lori Powers. Tensions run high when Jake discovers who the killer is. Will they get there in time to stop another murder?
Tantalizing? You bet, but until you've become addicted to Cary's writing the surprises will arise on every page. For addicts to his books...well, just wait, it is coming. Another winner for Cary Allen Stone. Grady Harp, December 17
