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.

Welcome back to my new favourite detective Jake Roberts who has recently been forced to retire from the police force.  On his vacation he is asked to consult on a murder case.  The excellent thing about this authors style of writing is that he keeps the text and language simple with exceptional character traits of the main characters. He cleverly let's the reader know who the killer is and an excellent game of cat and mouse ensues between killer and detective, which provides a wonderful page turning thriller. The writer shows a talent for how the night club show scene works and what traits and dedication to that particular lifestyle you need to be a success. As a reader you will find yourself totally engrossed in following Jake's new choice of lifestyle and will find out what he really wants to do.  The story keeps the reader totally enrapt till the last page and finishes on a real climax. The creation of Jake Roberts rates alongside James Patterson's Alex Cross and Peter Robinson's Inspector Banks, who all concentrate on the personal psyche and lives of the detectives.

 Vacation time and Jake sure can't wait.  Time with old friends in Phoenix is just what he needs to break up his days.  Living in Los Angeles now and writing books is how Jake Roberts spends his days.  Still he gets the itch once in awhile to see what's happening in law enforcement.        While in Phoenix, a murder catches his eye and he decides to see what he can do to help. He never expects to get wrapped up in another case, but that's just what happens.        Just when you think you're gonna ease into an easy read, Jake strikes again.   This one moves at a slower pace than the others but it's just as good.  Characters are well defined and relatable.  Well conceived and written, this is one to ad to the TBR pile.  I felt we got to see another side of Jake Roberts in this book.  It gave him a more well rounded personality.  I love Jake Roberts books and you will too. Get all of them so you have a great view of Jake.      I found no issues with this one.      I gave this one 4 cheers out of 5 because the pace was slower than the others.   ~Copy of book provided by author in exchange for a fair review~
