Two girls gone...
An abduction is just the beginning in a case of betrayal and revenge that will ultimately strike at the soul of the St. Paul Police Department. The ruggedly handsome Mac McRyan, a fourth-generation cop, is faced with a complicated brazen daytime kidnapping, a media storm surrounding the case, and political scrutiny. It is a case of betrayal and revenge that will ultimately strike at the soul of the St. Paul Police Department. From the searing streets of St. Paul to the murky waters of the St. Croix River, Deadly Stillwater is a story you won't be able to stop listening to until its last gripping minute.
New York Times and USA Today best-selling author, Roger Stelljes, delivers another thriller in the McRyan Mystery Series. Vince Flynn described Roger Stelljes as "A powerful new thriller voice." Fans of mysteries, thrillers, and suspense novels will enjoy this fast-moving story of murder, greed, and treason, the cast of colorful characters, and its setting in and around historic St. Paul, Minnesota.

No. 3 in this series and the characters and story are as good as ever! It'd be easy to see this series as a TV show, but 1 hour would be insufficient to get the detail and tension from these novels.
I have not yet managed to stop listening to these tales to make them last over several days. I consume them gleefully in one sitting (at the most 2)!
The narration is good, the characters are plausible and you understand their personalities more at this point, and the story, unnerving, exciting, and satisfying!
"Betrayal Retaliation Money & Revenge"
New author (to me), old concept with a new twist. Great characters. Totally took me by surprise.
This is the first time I've listened to Johnny Peppers. I thought he did a good job.
This was a totally unexpected surprise. It was on a list of books that I might like based on previous purchases. I usually ignore those because I rarely find anything I like with their suggestions. So this one turned out to be a real page turner. It has Feds gone bad, one is blackmailed by another who served prison time for stealing evidence and selling it. Others antaganists who feel the justice system has done them and their family wrong, and the there is the protagonist (Mac) and his team of Super Cops trying to save the lives of two kidnapped college students who have been buried alive, one who is a diabetic. You know the kidnappers have no intention of letting them go. Wow, this story is put together! Lots of clues along the way, it's a race right up to the last chapter. I really enjoyed this and Highly Recommend it.
"This superb thriller series keeps getting better!"
The Mac McRyan mystery series (this is Book 3) is a superb police procedural thriller. McRyan's assistant district attorney girlfriend Sally Kennedy played a smaller role in this novel than the prior one. In Deadly Stillwater there is lots of action and near constant suspense as the lives of two kidnapped teenage girls are at risk. The novel is set in St. Paul, Minnesota.
Mac McRyan is a fourth generation cop with a law degree with honors. Book 4, Electing to Murder, is up next.
Narration by Johnny Peppers is flawless.
"Payback's a ..."
Another great story by Roger Stelljes and narration by Johnny Peppers. The voice for one of the characters was surprising, unnerving and quite effective. This story kept my heart pounding and I could hardly stop listening.
"Just Love This Series!"
Mac McRyan is a great detective, and for once there is actually a police department where most of the people like each other.
Can't wait to hear the next book!
I thoroughly enjoyed the book the reader has a great voice and the story was wonderful to listen to had a hard time stopping it to sleep. five stars
"New author for me. LOVED IT!!"
OH MY GOSH!!! And let me tell you all it blew me outta the water. They say that revenge is a dish best served cold. The twists and turns of this tale kept me rocking on the edge of my seat 'til I thought I would lose my ever loving mind. First one of these I have read... I need to go back and find the rest.
Great story! Being from St Paul, it was fun to follow, the characters are believable and the storyline rid easy to imagine.
"Can't put down!"
Great series. Haven't read in order but enough info given that it doesn't matter. Ready for the next! Great reads!
A very interesting and good story line with lots of action,and misdirection,with a surprise ending. A very good book!
"lots of twists and turns."
