My Review

5 stars

This story starts out with the brutal murder of a college girl. But she is not the only one; it looks like a serial killer is just getting started with drug induced killings. It looks like a ritual killing and being a Navajo school is going to complicate things. But there is so much more than just the murders. There are drug cartels, biker gangs, and magic. This simple murder is going to get complicated very fast.

This book begins with a bang and just ramps up the speed from there. You have several investigating parties that don’t like to play well with others along with the Navajo reservation that is going to complicate things. Thankfully Jack DeLong is called in to help get things going in the right direction.

This is a great thriller that had me enraptured the whole time. It was very easy to slide into this story and want to stay her until the unexpected ending. I’m just glad that I have the next two books in the series to dive right into.


Midnight and the Masked Demon
Masked Demon Series Book 2
A flaming body falls onto a Yavapai County police cruiser. Is it
connected to a secret alliance between local bikers and a drug
cartel? At an isolated religious colony, life seems good but a rookie
officer suspects a lot more goes on behind the razor wire than church
socials and Sunday school. An FBI Agent with misgivings interviews
the next President of the Navajo Nation about the reservation’s
sudden economic boom, connections to the murder and a suspicious
trucking outfit.

As the investigation barrels along a twisted trail, all the suspects vie
for the top spot on the list, but in the end, the key to the riddle
lies in the past with the oldest of motives.
In the second of the Masked Demon series, Richard Combs blazes another
deadly path through biker gangs, rape, drug cartels, betrayal and

My Review

5 stars

We start the story with a body on fire lands on a police cruiser. But who is it and where did it come from? As the police start digging into this death, you learn of a religious compound that may have more behind the doors than prayers. You also have elections for the new President of the Navajo Reservation and some bikers thrown in for flavor.

How can you not be drawn into a story as a flaming body lands on the car you are currently in? From there it looks like there is more to the death than just a suicide. But the true beauty is how Combs can link a burning body, a religious compound, an election for Navajo President, bikers, and drug cartels together.

I love how easy it is to get into these story and how the ending seems to come too fast. I love the twists and turns and how things link together. But one of my favorite things is although this is the second book in the series; you do not have to read the books in order. You can easily pick up Midnight and the Masked Demon and not be lost.

I love this series and can’t wait to dive into book 3. This is one series that I strongly recommend.

Daybreak and the Masked Demon
Masked Demon Series Book 3
A grisly assassination, an icy grave, eleven victims in all including a
U.S. Senator. A Federal investigation leads nowhere. The grieving and
angry friends of one of the victims takes up the trail of mayhem and
murder to track possible clues, leading them from Arizona’s White
Mountain Apache Reservation to the Mexican border, to the guarded
citadels of billionaire kingmakers. No suspect has the means, motive,
and opportunity‒ yet eleven dead testify to at least one person
having all three.

Biker gangs, white supremacists, a wanted terrorist, even the President of
the Navajo Nation, suspects all, as Richard Combs delivers another
taut thriller in the third of the Masked Demon series.

My Review

5 stars

We start out with the discovery of eleven dead bodies, one a US Senator. But the who did it and why is a lot harder to discover. The person who discovers them passed a group of bikers. But a message left at the scene of the crime looks like white supremacists. It seems that someone is trying to keep things quiet but a friend of one of the victims is determined to find out the truth.

I absolutely love this series. It’s a dark, gritty thriller with so many suspects that have good stories yet are all suspects. There are so many twists and turns in the investigation that it is easy to lose a clue. You are kept on your feet at a fast pace as you run through the story.

I loved the ending and hope that Richard Combs has more planned for this series. I can’t wait to get to the ending and find the killer yet I hate to come to the end and leave this series. This is a great thriller that will leave you wanting more.
