"A hard-hitting story which touches on the dark side of everyone from the killer to the police who are investigating the crimes. The killer is known from the outset and is pursued by a police detective who is fighting his own demons. As their paths cross fireworks explode. If you like hard-hitting gritty novels that portray the true side of investigations this story is for you, a real page-turner with a very good psychological edge to it. Stone has created a killer the likes of Hannibal Lector in heels and a detective to rival Morse, Rebus, and Frost."

"Not your average murder story, MIND OVER MURDER is the perfect serial killer read! The second installment of the escapades and adventures of Jake Roberts is an excellent follow-up to book 1. Jake is facing a very puzzling case of yet another serial killer who is leaving no clues behind. He finds that he has to turn to Lori Powers who is now incarcerated, and Jake believes might be able to provide insight into the killer’s thoughts. Stone is a no-hold bar writer and takes you into the dark side of a person’s persona which leads to excitement, tension, and a lust for more of his books!"

"Detective Jake Roberts (who rates alongside James Patterson's Alex Cross and Peter Robinson's Inspector Banks) 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 Stone’s style of writing is that he keeps the text and language simple with exceptional character traits of the main characters. He cleverly lets 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 story finishes on a serious climax.”

"The chaotic world of Jake Roberts who attracts trouble like a lamp does a moth returns in another gripping serial killer story! Cary Allen Stone is one author to watch out for. He has a unique writing style and his portrayal of his character's traits as well as their physiological traits is amazing, along with descriptive scenes you can envisage in your mind’s eye. Another Stone hard-hitting and fast-paced thriller with emotive human touches that enthralls the reader and takes them on a journey through the troubled mind of another tormented serial killer."

“Ex-detective Jake Roberts runs his own security business and cannot help himself getting into trouble from past exploits. This time Jake has to tackle and rescue a friend’s wife from an evil drug lord and the adventure along with the thrills and spills is an amazing one. The characters and scenes are expertly described, and you can imagine yourself being in the background observing. A high-powered tension line plot sends lightning through your spine, and I can assure you this one is a worthwhile ride! This is a masterpiece of fiction. Any detective loving reader will instantly fall in love with the novel.”

“The story is riveting as the author unrolls Brandyn Wood so skillfully you just fall in love with the character of brilliance with a heart veiled in a childhood of callous indifference. Brandon’s associates surround this fascinating man as moons around a planet. This different and dangerous outside-the-box group bring you the excitement and adventure of their con artist deeds – absolutely a treasure!”

Ethel and Murray Wood taught their son Brandyn to be a con artist. They said the only way to financial freedom was the con. Brandyn did small cons at first and found he was good at it. He recruited his own crew, the best in the business. Brandyn attempts a highest-stakes con. Will he succeed, or die in a plane crash? Will he spend the rest of his life in Supermax? Will the Russian Mafyia kill him? Will Mai ever forgive him? Would you bet your life on Brandyn?

A chilling look at human nature in a context where the lines between right and wrong become sadly blurred. It’s a compelling account of one woman's life, and what drove her to take the life of her six-year-old son. How everyday choices shape our perceptions, justifications, and actions. One must consider how close to the edge we all are. It’s a true story told in layman’s terms, with the hope of preventing another tragic loss.
