"Why bring partisan politics into the story?"
This novel, like the others in this marvelous crime thriller series, probably deserves 5 stars, but the author unnecessarily decided to bring partisan politics into the story in a "preachy manner". I down rated the novel one star due to the political angle.
I am not listening to the 5th and most recent book in the McRyan mystery series and the partisan politics are not there, This is a wonderful series and the narration is also outstanding.
I don't generally read or listen to books more than once. This one was very good though so I might consider it.
Might be a mix between a Dan Brown book where there is a lot of action and a Grisham book for the story.
Mr. Peppers does excellent voices for the characters. He has a calming, smooth voice as the narrator.
Yes. I spent hours at a time listening and waiting for the time I could listen again.
Stelljes is a very good writer and Peppers bring his characters to life. A great partnership and I can't wait for the next one.
"Good story but too politically biased"
The plot was good and the storyline was equal to the other books in the series. The negatives were a few completely unnecessary diatribes on the Citizens United Supreme Court decision and the Left's/Hollywood's typical and easily anticipated boogie man. It was laughable how the author proclaims the main character, Mac, to be an independent, apolitical thinker, but the only reasonable politicians were those who share viewpoints with democrats. Disappointing.
"Great story - feels 'Real'"
I like the mcRyan series. It somehow feels more like a ridealong with real cops working out a case rather than some superhero. Great book!
"Another Winner in This Series"
I'm reading this series in order with several others in-between. I continue to like Mac and the other characters in his life. Nice, comfortable love story without a lot of graphic sex scenes. Lots of murders, again no gratuitous violent descriptions.
This plot was far-fetched (St Paul cop and fired FBI agent involved in a presidential race). But still a fun read.
Look forward to the next in a few months.
Narration was fine, although I had difficulty remembering what voice went with which character.
"Fun Story, but come on..."
I read fiction to get away from the divisive politics that dominates news programs. I'm quite educated & have my own views on Campaign Super PACs, etc. This story was fun, but I tired of the preaching by 3/4 of the way through the story.
"Electing to Murder"
The bottom of the list.
There wasn't any! 😕
I did but only because I wanted to get through it!!
I DON'T NORMALLY SAY THIS, BUT DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!!! 💲💲💲💲💲
"All Sandford fans apply here!"
Simple, if you are a John Sandford fan you will love the series of books. Also, look for the little tipping of the hat to Lucas Davenport in this book.
"Another good story in the series"
A good story with lots of twists and action, and some pretty funny lines about American politics
"Excellent and somewhat prophetic story line"
Loved story line. The variety of challenges for the "good guys" was well thought out. The only downside for me was a redundancy of words and situations. The editors should have pared down the repeats of the story lines. In all an entertaining listen.
