Deadly Stillwater by Roger Stelljes Book Summary

New York Times & USA Today Bestselling Mystery Series

Shannon hustled to her car and dug into her black purse, searching for her car keys. He quickly put his hand over her mouth as she screamed and thrashed, slid the van door open, and dragged her inside... She tried to scream through the duct tape pasted over her mouth. He could see the horror in Shannon's eyes. It was only the beginning...

The ruggedly handsome Mac McRyan, a fourth-generation cop, is faced with a complicated brazen daytime kidnapping, a media storm surrounding the case, and political scrutiny. An abduction is just the beginning in a case of betrayal and revenge that will ultimately strike at the heart and soul of the St. Paul Police Department.

From the searing streets of St. Paul to the murky waters of the St. Croix River, DEADLY STILLWATER is a book you won't be able to put down until its last gripping minute.

A cliche clogged book. Get a better editorMr. Stelljes is a very good writer with far too many descriptions that are offensively trite. Using the wrong tense is off putting as well. The is a very talented writer who otherwise knows what he is doing, although he does seem to go on a little too long. This is a five star writer with a two star editor. A shame really..Score: 4/5

SuspensefulThis was a good cop suspense thriller. Good character development and the story line had so many twists, it definitely kept you guessing. Some of the dialogue was a little cheesy and hinted at a book more written to fill the quota or publishers expectation/contract then something really from the heart. My one and only true complaint is minor. I read about 2 to 3 books a week. I've noticed in the last few years that the editing has become less and less. Many many grammatical & spelling errors. Makes me wonder how it gets published without anyone catching. We need to stop relying on spellcheck and go back to old-fashioned thinking..Score: 4/5

Happy endingsI give the book credit for keeping me glued for most of the part. But then the lead character just starts getting lucky and that's all till the end.

Perfect!Great story and characters. Believable dialogue. Absorbing plot. And mature relationships (instead of gratuitous leering descriptions of adolescent angst). Whether intentional or not, the characters have a moral compass. The narrative stayed focused on the story..Score: 5/5

Well planned kidnappings meet detectives who don't quitMcRyan and his seasoned team of detectives are good, but can they move fast enough to find not one, but two young women, kidnapped separately, by mysterious predators with revenge on their minds? The kidnappers are bafflingly efficient, leaving no clues even as they take their victims off public streets in broad daylight. And when they contact the prominent fathers of the girls, they fail to mention a ransom amount..Score: 4/5

Good story but brutal punctuationThe story lime was really good. It was engaging and fast paced. The characters were believable and realistic. But... The punctuation was laden with amateurish errors that I would expect to see in fanfic, not profic. There were glaring errors in the punctuation around dialogue that should have been caught by any editor or proofreader. There were missing quotation marks as wells. And not just once, but many, many times. These errors kept throwing me out of the story, but the plot was so good, it kept drawing me back in..Score: 3/5

Deadly StillwaterA great cast of good guys and bad guys. A well thought out and fast moving plot. It bogged down a bit in 30 years of old files but that was fleeting. I question why , once the bad guys got the little bit of ransome( was that ever explained why only 5 million for 5 people)? Why didn’t they split up from there instead of a long drawn out boat ride up to a place ehere you needed a extension ladder to get out of??? Makes no sense to trap yourself. Other than that it made for a good story, Smith was too smart to be trapped..Score: 4/5
