Publisher's Summary

Murder... Greed... Treason... The morning after Halloween, the city of St. Paul awakens to find that a serial killer terrorizing the blue-collar working women of University Avenue has struck for the fifth time.
Thirty-two-year-old, fourth-generation St. Paul Homicide Detective Michael "Mac" McRyan thought his day was going to be less stressful. His day would involve paper work, coffee, and maybe even an early trip to the pub. Then his cell phone tells him his day is about to change. A body has been found in a high-end condominium between Summit and Grand Avenues; and it's not just anyone.
"Your day just got worse," Mac tells his captain. The victim is Claire Daniels, the Twin Cities' most prominent political and investigative reporter. Claire was stunningly attractive. She had blonde hair, blue eyes and a curvaceous body she worked on relentlessly. Claire was the desire of every man in town.
With the Daniels murder on top of the latest serial killer attack, the political and media pressure on the St. Paul Police Department only builds and places Mac in the middle of a dangerous and high-stakes murder investigation that will ultimately have national political and security implications.
New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Roger Stelljes delivers an action packed story in the McRyan Mystery Series. Vince Flynn described Roger as: "A powerful new thriller voice." Stelljes' vivid characters, his gift for gritty and real dialogue, as well as his uncanny sense of place and time, will put you in the middle of the action allowing you to feel the desperation of Mac McRyan and his fellow detectives.

Not so fast

If you could sum up The St. Paul Conspiracy in three words, what would they be?

Complex, twisty, character


What did you like best about this story?

I really like how there are almost two mysteries in one. It was a complex story, but very well put together.


What about Johnny Peppers’s performance did you like?

Mr. Peppers has a wide range of voices that he uses well to distinguish the characters. There were at least 10 character voices that he had to do and I enjoyed them all.


If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

They should have taken a page from Ms. Daniels book. Their lack of perfectionism came at a cost.


Any additional comments?

A great story with a great narrator really brings a book to life.

A REEEELY Radical Police Procedural Idea Here

Here' the story. Murder happens. Police investigate. THEY WORK AS A TEAM! Bad guys are totally bad.

Reeeeely different from everything else in this genre? Well yeah… See that third point… The one where the police work as a team? Where the lead detective doesn't get more grief from his or her bosses than from the really bad guys? Where he's actually supported? Now that's refreshing. Imagine, the brass and the detectives and the beat cops all liking and supporting and professionally interacting like… like… friends? Well that's astonishing.

Yet odd as it is to the police procedural, Roger Stelljes makes it work. I mean… it's almost revolutionary. Makes me wanna get another Mike McRyan book. Hey! I will, especially if it's read as well as Johnny Peppers performs this one.
