Reviewed by Viga Boland for Readers' Favorite

After the Evil by Cary Allen Stone is another in his exciting series of crime-based fiction surrounding the actions and reflections of his protagonist, policeman Jake Roberts. Cary Allen Stone introduces a lot of characters, including the perpetrator, within the first 10-15 pages of the book. Each of the characters grabs the reader from the get-go. Some readers may find themselves a bit confused by this quick onslaught of characters, wondering who all these people are and where this is all going. But Stone pulls them all together very neatly as the story unfolds into one of those books you just can't put down. Jake and his dedicated group of policemen, led by the talented and beautiful FBI profiler, Mika, take us down a trail of murder, mutilation, sexual aberrations, abuse, romance and mysogynism that still has you thinking about what happened once After the Evil is finished.

While readers may initially feel a bit disoriented by tense changes and unexpected switches between first and third person narration, they will get used to hearing Jake interrupting the narration of events. Well thought out characters and lots of twists and turns as the police desperately try to find a nasty serial killer keep readers turning the pages and leave them wondering what will happen in Cary Allen Stone's next thriller. Readers will also appreciate the realistic look the author gives into human nature. Allen is superb at showing that none of us is all evil or all good: even the killer is lovable, if quite insane ... all good reasons for picking up After the Evil by Cary Allen Stone.
