What's a dog without a master?

Former homicide detective turned crime writer, Jake Roberts, is in Phoenix with his true love, Caitlin, for a relaxing holiday visiting lifelong friend, Fred, and his wife. But Fred, a pilot, is shot in the knee and chest at the ajrport by a desperate army vet. turned terrorist and suicide bomber which draws Jake back into danger as he goes to the rescue. With Fred hospitalised, Caitlan returns alone to host the big Hollywood party which had been arranged at Jake's home, promising to come back to Phoenix the next day, little knowing that there is a serial killer at large intent on making Jake the next victim.

After the kill, by author Cary Allen Stone, follows on directly from the previous novel, After the Goode although it is not necessary to have read that book to enjoy this one. The protagonists are nicely characterized and narration, by the author, further conveys the feel of the story. His voice, a little less than smooth, carries the emotional input well and is easy to hear. There are a few minor production glitches but is otherwise good. (And a small mystery from the previous book is solved as section three in this story had obviously been accidentally included in that book also. The introduction of the two psychologists at section three in After the Goode, never to be heard of again, had seemed very srrange).

This is a series which is fairly new to me. The writing is natural, fresh and focused very much on the people, not just the story. This makes for a fulfilling reading. All the emotions are there - love, joy, humour, frienship, fear, pity, sorrow, guilt, hate and anger, and any others I might have forgotten. This is an excellent series and the protagonists are rapidly becoming, if not friends, then at least aquaintances I look forward to meeting again.
My thanks to the rights holder of After the Kill, who, at my request, freely gifted me with a complimentary copy via Audiobook Boom.
