My rating: 4 of 5 stars
After The Evil is a thriller and is the first in the Jake Roberts detective novels. A Homicide detective, he’s currently on sick leave after a very violent case and undergoing psychiatric counselling as part of the job routine requirements.
The book opens with a horrible murder. We are also introduced to flight attendant Lori Powers, a troubled woman who hears voices and is haunted by the loss of her daughter.
Special Agent Mika Scott is on the trail of a serial killer. She arrives at Police headquarters and works with Jake and his partner, Harman Blackwell as another murder victim is found.
There is very little evidence at any of the murders and Mika and the team are looking at dead ends when a possible link is found with a man known as The Runner. Have they at last found the culprit? Or is there something they’ve missed?
