Book Review: Crazed by Jacob Stone

Morris Brick is a detective that investigated the Scull Cracker Killer (SCK). Brick discovers that the SCK has someone that wants to make a bigger splash than the SCK and is obsessed with doing so.  Brick makes an extraordinary thriller hero. He has an excellent sense of calm even in the midst of the most gruesome of situations.

All of the characters in this book have depth. My favorite character is Philip Stonehedge. At first it appears that Stonehedge would be conceited because he is a highly attractive actor. As the book continues the reader witnesses how much depth and values Stonehedge has a person.

I have never been much a fan of flashbacks within books. This book has changed my opinion. Stone placed flashbacks within the story that maintained the intrinsic plot of the book. The flashbacks added even more compelling elements to the book. I found myself eager to read more flashbacks.

This is the second book of the Morris Brick thrillers. Prior to reading Crazed I did not know it was part of a series. The first book is titled Deranged (I’m excited to read it). This is excellent literary crime writing, an authentic thriller. The anticipated publishing date for Crazed is September 5, 2017. This book is definitely 5 out of 5 stars.

* I received a complimentary advanced copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for my honest review.
