Deadly Stillwater is the third book I have read in the McRyan Mystery Series, and I am falling more in love with Michael Mac McRyan and the other characters. I like the way Roger Stelljes portrays his characters and how he intertwines the main characters together. Also, Roger Stelljes does provide romantic situations between his characters, but it does not distract from the main plot it enhances it. Deadly Stillwater is a fast moving crime mystery that keeps the reader's clue to their chairs. Readers of Deadly Stillwater will see the importance of mind mapping a problem. Deadly Stillwater highlights the importance of corporation from all branches of law enforcement. I recommend this book.

With great characters and lots of dead ends the book smoothly keeps pulling you along. It started with a kidnapping, and then another kidnapping and it kept my interest from there. Most of the book is about the investigation. The two young women’s lives are at risk (one is a diabetic), and the police trying to figure out the real reason the kidnappings occurred. I took this from BM Perrin’s review, I liked what he said: “I found the suspense in this story to be outstanding. In part, this is due to the heinous nature of the crime. But even so, the author did an admirable job of keeping my stomach in a knot, as the finale approached relentlessly. The pacing was excellent. There are really no downtimes, although there is some seemingly unnecessary repetition of ideas.” I strongly recommend the book and I plan to read more of his books.

    Not a bad book, as such, just not my cup of tea. I just didn't care. About any of it. Didn't empathize with the victims or particularly like any of the 'heroes'. Not a fan of the dialogue or the style of writing either. Wasn't gripped by the story, was just 'meh, whatever'. (I'm finding this with quite a few books I've read lately, so maybe it's just my current mood ...)

    A couple of girls have been kidnapped and Mac and the gang is after the kidnappers. From the start, the dialogue seems funny to me, not funny as in 'entertaining' but as in 'unrealistic'. The plot from the start is predictable and gets worse as it goes on culminating in a boring chase, which in all honesty, I can't be bothered to read. The characters, I find, are run-of-the--mill cops making the story a regular bad guy, good guy thing. Don't waste your time. You can find something better.

    I didn't realize until I had completed this book that it was the second in a series. And, I had not read the first book but that had absolutely no bearing on this read at all. I found this to be an edgy page-turning psychological story. The author had just the right amount of twists and turns to keep this intriguing.

    A double kidnapping will catch your attention, but the language and over use of a few phrases will dull the finish. Not great character development. But a nice plot when the bad guys were always ahead of the police. Cops do not paw through years of lawyer files even if the lawyer's child is kidnapped.

    Deadly Stillwater marks the return of Michael McKenzie McRyan, known as “Mac” to his police colleagues and pals. The daughter of a famous and wealthy local attorney is kidnapped in broad daylight as she leaves her job at a café in downtown Stillwater, MN. Witnesses have very little information to give the police, and so far, there is no ransom demand. The next day, another young woman is taken; this time, it’s the daughter of the chief of police.

The daughter of a famous and wealthy local attorney is kidnapped in broad daylight as she leaves her job at a café in downtown Stillwater, MN. Witnesses have very little information to give the police, and so far, there is no ransom demand. The next day, another young woman is taken; this time, it’s the daughter of the chief of police. Are the abductions connected? If so, how? After the vehicle connected to the first case is found destroyed in neighboring Wisconsin, the FBI is contacted, and Agent John Burton is the man in charge. Unlike most cases involving the Feds, Burton promises to cooperate and involve local officials as much as possible. Really? From the onset, the reader knows both sides of the case, for the most part. There are four kidnappers; brains of the operation is a man named Smith, who spent 15 years in prison. Then there are the brawny accomplices, David and Dean, plus the beautiful Monica, who provides some crucial information, such as tipping off the guys when Shannon, the first victim, was leaving the café. What we don’t know until much later is what motivates them. However, their planning and execution are amazing, even admirable. It’s as if they know exactly what the police will do and are doing. Do you suppose…? Having read Stelljes’ first book, The St. Paul Conspiracy, perhaps a year or two ago, I was familiar with his cop characters. Mac is a fourth-generation Irish cop with a law degree. He also has money, but police work is in his blood. The other guys on his team, Riley, Rockford, and Lich, are all rather stereotypes who do the typical guy banter while in the squad room, but they are an effective team, and Stelljes seems to have a good working knowledge of police procedure. There is a lot of dialogue in this novel, perhaps a bit too much for my taste, but for the most part, it felt realistic enough. I did feel that at this stage, book 2, there could be more development of the main characters, as they seem rather one-dimensional. The plot, however, kept me engaged. I liked the way the bad guys were staying a jump ahead of the cops, changing clothes, changing locations, and frustrating the heck out of them. The part where tempers flared between the mayor and Mac seemed plausible, and the fact that it was a holiday made information more difficult to obtain and hence, things were more tense. The information about Shannon Hisle being a Type 1 diabetic is a good detail; it adds a greater sense of drama and urgency. I am not sure, though, whether someone with Type 1 diabetes would not have her insulin with her at all times. The pacing is fast, and though there doesn’t seem to be a question of whether the daughters will be found or the bad guys caught, there is plenty of blood-pumping action as Mac and the guys race against the clock to solve the mysteries of the crimes. Even after they know who is responsible, they must find them and stop them. There are plenty of secrets, which I won’t give away, but all in all, it’s a pretty good story. It’s extra fun for Minnesotans who are familiar with the Twin Cities and Stillwater area. Mac McRyan has a promising future. 3 of 5 stars

    Very good and fast read. My only problem was all the errors kept distracting me from the story because I'd look at each error - spelling, grammar or typos and think ... whoever edited this doesn't know how to edit and doesn't pay attention to detail.

For example, the most recent error to catch my eye is, "The old man look disappointed." I caught this error only one quarter through the text and at that point had already caught over 6 of these silly errors. Also economy in language would've made a big difference, for example, "... Lick said with a smile,..." could just be, 'Lick smiled,' to identify the speaker. I liked the way Stelljes built his characters and found them very believable. There were very few spots where I thought the text should be changed. All in all a good quick read and fast paced action. I very much liked his style and familiarity with police procedure and technique in his characters. I love mysteries. This book has excellent timing and pacing, which I really appreciated and enjoyed. I am planning to read St. Paul Conspiracy too.

Was the author under some pressure to put more "grit" into the series? 'Cuz it comes across as a rather half-hearted and unnecessary attempt at "grit", IMO.Putting that aside, this book is fast moving. I spend from 3rd grade to graduating from high school in Minnesota - smaller communities, about 1 hour north of the Twin Cities. So it cracked me up that this book is almost like a tour of Minnesota - the crooks travel far-and-wide throughout MN and even into Wisconsin, trying to stay one step ahead of Mac Ryan and his crew.Lyman Hisle's daughter and Chief Flannigan's daughter have been kidnapped - both in very controlled, planned ways. Hisle is the really connected defense attorney we met in book 1. He's well-liked by the cops, though, because for every scum he defends, he also lends a hand on cop-related defense cases. Hisle is well-liked and well-respected... and very rich.Mac and his crew can't quite figure out what the deal is, though, because the kidnappers talk about money, but no real ransom demands. There's something else going on here. When the investigation crosses into Wisconsin, because the bad guys used a pay phone there to make one of their calls, the FBI becomes involved. Tensions are a bit high, 'cuz the FBI doesn't always play well.The mayor is determined to keep Flannigan and "his boys" on a leash. He wants the FBI in charge, which is fine, except Burton, the SAIC, seems to be dragging his feet to Mac. But Mac and his boys were part of a highly-publicized and criticized take-down just a few weeks before, and there were allegations of police brutality when it was all captured on video.It's a twisted, puzzling case... and while I knew who the insider was right away, I didn't know why - the connection. But these bad guys aren't your average bad guys. Prepared, controlled, planned... they don't leave much to chance and know how not to leave any clues or trace behind. It's almost a miracle that Mac and his guys figure it out. But can they rescue the girls AND Hisle and the Chief?==============Other than the change in language and the one sex scene, not much has changed. Which is a good thing. Mac is a solid character - maybe too much of a hero... too good at his job, but hey, he's the one you want solving your case!Sally and Mac are still together. While they practically live together, there's no real talk of marriage. Both seem to be burned, yet, by their failed first marriages. Sally's OK, but somehow she's not floating my boat. She's got some fire and flare, but... dunno. Maybe the sex scene was a way to make her more interesting?Other than his cop relatives, not much about Mac's family. A brief mention of one of his 3 sisters at the beginning. But by now, I'd think we'd have a bit more insight into Mac's mom and his family, including the extended family. I guess Mac is all business? Other than Sally, we don't have real glimpses into Mac's life beyond his business contacts and friends he brings in to help him solve cases. By now, I'd think we'd have a more well-rounded picture of Mac. Is his job really his life? That's kinda sad, and it doesn't seem like who Mac is.BUT, this is a good, keep-you-guessing book. It's gritty, harsh, realistic (as a book can be), and just plain tough.Good book!

I feel a story should be distinct and complete from cover to cover and not simply a teaser to get the reader to buy yet another book. By and large, Roger Stelljes’ suspense novels featuring ‘Mac’ McRyan and a cast of quirky St. Paul homicide detectives don’t do that. They are self-contained and you really don’t need to read them in sequence. While they are nominally cop stories, they are much more action-adventure than police procedurals and fun reads. Think Mitch Rapp with a badge, shooting first and asking questions later. Because this series is set in the Twin Cities of Minnesota, they will always draw comparison to John Sandford’s highly successful “Prey” books. I think Stelljes’ books have considerably more action and running around (the characters are always running or racing somewhere), while Sandford’s have better suspense and character development, but both series are good reads. Roger Stelljes’ books are on Kindle, and you can frequently find them in the Kindle Countdown Sales. Pick one up, they are great for the beach or a long airplane ride.William F.

It’s like having someone poke me in the side with their index finger annoying. flag 1 like · Like  · see review View 2 comments Apr 15, 2015 Heaven Sims rated it it was amazing In Deadly Stillwater, the main character of the story is Mac McRyan, a fourth generation cop. He works for the St. Paul Police Department. The cop, Mac Ryan, is important to the story because he is dealing with the kidnapping that happened in the middle of the day, all of the media, and a political crisis. Obviously he isn’t the only person dealing with all of these issues but he is the man in charge and has to stay focused with everything trying to weigh him down.

Obviously he isn’t the only person dealing with all of these issues but he is the man in charge and has to stay focused with everything trying to weigh him down. Shannon Hisle is the innocent waitress that got kidnapped while walking to her car after work. She got pulled so hard that it cause her to drop her phone and her car keys. Smith is the driver of the get away van. He spent fifteen years in the Leaven Worth Federal Penitentiary. He had it rough is those fifteen years in the penitentiary. He got beat up so many times that he suffered from broken ribs, fingers, and wrists, mulitple times. He eventually got a shattered eye socket which causes him to have blurry vision in his left eye and a broken nose. While in the Leaven Worth Federal Penitentiary he met brothers David and Dean. David and Dean both noticed the way Smith kept getting horribly beaten and did not like what they saw, so they decided to have Smith’s back. They ultimately saved his life so in return Smith agreed to always have David and Dean’s back. Monica is the stalker for the other criminals. She dressed in weird clothing and sat in the cafe to stalk Shannon Hisle. She watched every move Shannon Hisle made. Deadly Stillwater is a mystery book. The story takes place between Wisconsin and Minnesota. The time period of this book is during the present. In this story, the st. croix river, stillwater, and lake superior are mentioned often. This story was very interesting. Even though at times it was violent, there are also sad moments, and suspenseful moments. The main character, Mac McRyan, is trying to solve the kidnapping case of Shannon Hisle. At the end, Mac McRyan ended up saving Shannon Hisle. She had minor injuries. My final thoughts on this book is that its very entertaining if you enjoy crime and mystery stories. I enjoyed this book because it had all of the qualities that I enjoy reading - mystery, crime, and suspense. This story had a good story line and the story also had very well thought out and realistic scenarios. Although I really enjoyed the book, I didn’t really get into the political part of the story and the story got a little corny at times, but then again it is a book about a young girl getting kidnapped. While reading this book, I learned to always watch my surroundings. There could be someone following and stalking me and I wouldn’t even know because I don’t ever really pay attention. Anyone can get kidnapped anyday, at anytime. Even during broad daylight like in this story. I definitely recommend others to read this book. Not only to people who enjoy crime stories, but to everyone honestly. Everyone should learn to always be careful and to always pay attention to their surroundings. flag 1 like · Like  · see review May 16, 2017 Cssekar Uspl added it NiceGoodnight to my great friends I hope you're having fun in the family and cronies you will always love me when you have to go on a good night with you all flag 1 like · Like  · see review View 1 comment Jan 04, 2013 Jim A rated it really liked it  ·  review of another edition A pretty good police procedural, very well written.

I can't remember having read a scene like that in a contemporary police novel. The action takes place in and around Minneapolis-St. Paul over a three day time frame. Therefore the book is very fast paced, moving from the police perspective and then to the criminals perspective. The author puts enough time markers in the story to keep everything in context. While I have never visited the area, I felt right at home with the author's description of the rivers, St. Croix and Mississippi, as well as the surrounding areas. I was pleasantly surprised by this book. This was a "free for Kindle" I picked up a week or so ago. As this was the second of the Mac McRyan police novels, I will have to go back a pick up the first, as well as the prequel that has been written. flag 1 like · Like  · see review May 13, 2013 Lisa rated it really liked it  ·  review of another edition Very good mystery/crime book. It was suspenseful enough to keep me turning pages long after I needed to be asleep! The daughters of the police chief and a well-off lawyer are kidnapped a day apart.

With a prosecutor and a TV reporter thrown in the mix, it makes for an interesting set of characters working to find the daughters and the kidnappers. This is apparently one of several "Mac McRyan Mysteries". I would definitely read another Mac McRyan Mystery and definitely read another book by Roger Stelljes. flag 1 like · Like  · see review « previous 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 … next »
