Save a credit, buy this on sale.

First Case is a short story. The words to price ratio is VERY low. I did get it on sale and for that price, enjoyed it. Once again, Stelljes refreshingly takes us into a police procedural where none of the cops are Peter Principle promotions, but instead are decent, intelligent professionals who like and respect each other to work as a team. The tension here's created by bad guys on the street, not bad guys among the brass. How original huh?

At the right price, grab this little thing for a good introduction to the McRyan series. However, you don't need to read this short story to jump right in and start with "The St. Paul Conspiracy". It'll tell you all you need.

Johnny Pepper reads it good.

Thankfully, There Will Be More!

Imagine that you've left behind a profession that could propel your future to unknown heights for a place in a family legacy of public service. Mac Ryan doesn't have to envision that possibility. He's living the reality.

In a tight and matter of fact style, he approaches his first foray into murder. Ably accompanied by a seasoned veteran, he shows a deft technique enhanced by his tendency to map all of the facets, and finds the answer, gets the guilty party and manages to extract himself from a personal entanglement no longer worth his investment.

As the beginning of a new series, this was a compelling tale that whets your appetite and has you glad that you know there will be more!
