    Book Review

Reviewed by Tyler F. Hosea for Readers' Favorite

After the Goode is Cary Allen Stone’s first novel since living in Arizona. He continues to incorporate his surroundings into his writing, since he writes what he knows. The reader gets a complete picture of Atlanta, or in this case, Phoenix, airplanes, flying, comedy clubs, and the human condition. I thoroughly enjoyed creating a picture in my mind of the surroundings in the book. I also enjoyed reading detailed police procedure, something else that the author does extremely well. It is very evident that Stone spends a great deal of time researching his material before beginning to write.

As a reader, I know and love Stone’s lead character, Jake Roberts. I look forward to each new novel with excitement rivaling the release of Apple’s newest iPhone! In After the Goode, readers are treated to a plethora of new characters. Phoenix Police Department’s Wynter Williams and her father, comedian Bobby Goode, airline pilot and Jake’s best friend, Fred, Fred’s loving supportive girlfriend, Andrea, are all new to the mix. I’ve had a difficult time deciding which new character I enjoy most. I really find the relationship between Fred and Jake so special. What a beautiful friendship. It leaves the reader wishing that they had a best friend just like that. I can't think of any real people I like as well as Stone's characters. The events of this book will leave readers wondering how many new scars Jake’s psyche can withstand. Be ready for an emotional and exhilarating ride.
