^READ E-PUB ↡ Deadly Stillwater (McRyan Mystery, #2) ⇧ PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB free

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 pageturning psychological story. The author had just the right amount of twists and turns to keep this intriguing. 2.5 stars rounded up

One from the depths of my kindle & sadly, not my cup of tea.
Deadly Stillwater by Roger Stelljes is the third book in the Mac McRyan Mystery Series with over 4,200 reviews.

I read this book because the kindle version was free and had 4,200 reviews. I was not disappointed.

Kidnapping, law enforcement mole, Police, Sheriffs, FBI, DEA, boat chase on the river, twists and turns with the climax on the 4th of Julya very good read.

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.
This is just crap: totally disposable trash. We're in thrillers here, so nobody expects great literaturebut there is such a thing as good bad art, whereas this ... ?!

I have to admit that I don't know if the characters are interesting, the action exciting, the denouement thrilling. Because when I read the following (at 1%) I junked the whole thing: "He rolled his athletic sixfootone frame out of the Explorer. Ruggedly handsome, Mac had short blond hair, icy blue eyes, and a taut face with a dimple the size of the Grand Canyon on his scarred chin. A former captain of the University of Minnesota hockey team, he was still at his 190pound playing weight and worked hard daily to keep it that way. Sliding on his Oakley sunglasses, ..."

I think this is what they mean when they call something 'beyond parody'.

No: life's just too short for this rubbish. 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 ...) This book was free on Amazon, it sounded like my sort of thing so I gave it a try. Glad I did. A fast moving plot that kept me guessing. Great descriptions and characters.

One small criticism. A type 1 diabetic would NEVER forget her insulin. Nor would she be likely to survive for two days without it. My niece is type one and requires insulin four times a day! She could have taken her insulin on the day of her abduction and still be in extreme danger.

Apart from that, great stuff. I shall look out for more of this author's books and this time I'll even pay for them! 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. 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 runofthemill cops making the story a regular bad guy, good guy thing.

Don't waste your time. You can find something better. I received this free ebook "Deadly Stillwater", through Goodreads Giveaway through the author,Roger Stelljes.
